What is indisputable is that Broder set out to make the car look like a failure and during his attempt he did not fully charge the battery between stops. Nobody in their right mind would do that. 99% of the time these cars will be used on commutes which means they get charged every night.

Musk did not say that Tesla lost $100 million in sales due to the Times article. He said that Tesla stock lost $100 million dollars in market capitalization due to the Times. This seems to be due to a misunderstanding of a Bloomberg interview with Musk broadcast this morning. At first the interviewer assumed that Musk was referring to sales. When he realized this, he made it clear that he was referring to the value of the company’s stock. This Reuters is another example of the news media mangling a person’s words and drawing incorrect conclusions.

Broder lied. Great job there, NYT. Your reporters lie just like everyone elses.
