In the midst of several media reports on activities of Elon Musk, the tech billionaire has referred to the media as “click-seeking machine.”

Musk slammed the media on Twitter after the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported on his alleged affair with Google Co-founder Sergey Brin’s wife Nicole Shanahan, which the Tesla CEO has categorically denied.

“The media is a click-seeking machine dressed up as a truth-seeking machine,” Elon Musk said.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO recently expressed his dissatisfaction with the unwanted media attention he is receiving these days.

He stated that the attention “super sucks,” and that he will continue to concentrate on doing useful things.

The WSJ report had claimed that “Musk engaged in a brief affair last fall with the wife of Sergey Brin, prompting the Google Co-founder to file for divorce earlier this year and ending the tech billionaires’ long friendship”.

Musk later chastised the newspaper for linking him to Shanahan, urging his 102 million social media followers to condemn the publication for publishing a false story.

He urged his supporters to “call them out on it.”

Musk claimed that this year’s character assassination attacks had reached a new high, but”the articles are all nothing-burgers”.
