Duh!
Of course!
Why does the press seem to hate Tesla?
Tesla doesn't advertise.

Top 5 Automakers spent more than $11 Billion on advertising back in 2016.

Tesla spent $0.

Tesla does a referral program that gets 40x ROI according to the item below, also from 2016. The situation has likely not changed much, with the notable exception of the end of the free supercharging on referral and, of course, the exponential growth in delivery numbers with Model 3.

So when one wonders why the media enables FUD, wonder no more.

" Whether you talk about the progress of the underlying progress in technologies in electric vehicles, from the batteries to the solar energy, which is obviously in the background of this for Tesla specifically and in general.
Whether you talk about those industry developments which we think are showing signs of being for a very long number of years set up to move absolutely in the favour of electric vehicles. Or whether you think about the specific achievements of Tesla, the underlying economic developments as opposed to the,as you quite rightly refer to from a management point of view, seem to us as equally encouraging as some of the noises are discouraging.
It does look for instance as though Tesla, the series 3, was the highest single revenue generating car in August. Now that seems to me to be a quite extraordinary fact. And you know I do wonder at times whether a little more of the attention ought to be on the people who are going to struggle to cope with this on the other side of it in the traditional car industry and on to the oil and gas!
