Looks like the TSLA bears have found another fake story to promote. Suddenly, all over the news and twitter are reports that Elon is the highest paid CEO ever! Except he's not, and anyone being intellectually honest knows it. The one that surprised me was the Mercury news, I was surprised that an actual respectable newspaper would help to perpetuate this obviously false story.
Oh wait, they're not promoting fake news afterall, in the third paragraph they write the following sentence: "However, Musk's realized compensation last year was $56,380"
Now I'm just confused, I thought he was highest paid CEO ever? Oh well, made me click, you win.
In case you're interested, below is a snippet from Twitter explaining what really happened, spoiler, he made minimum wage as required by California law.
