Elon Musk launching ironic media site with ex-Onion editors

Musk also called for the regulation of artificial intelligence, calling it more risky than nuclear weaponry, and spoke about self-driving vehicles, saying that "by the end of next year, self-driving will encompass all modes of driving and be at least 100 to 200 percent safer than a person". You wouldn't normally associate comedy with Musk given that he's no comedian but according to a new report, Musk is financially backing a new secret comedy project.

At South by Southwest, SpaceX Founder and CEO Elon Musk projected that his first Mars spaceship will be ready for short trips by the first half of next year.

Musk does not manage the project, and will not have editorial oversight, the source added.

"In massive mistake, Elon Musk rides own Tesla to Mars thinking electric car's battery will run for 70 million miles instead of just 300".

The Daily Beast reported that former editors of the Onion Cole Bolton Ben Berkley are working with Musk - and poaching other staffers.

Harry Styles' Song 'Medicine' Hints at Bisexuality, Some Fans Claim
Although he's dated women such as Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner , many of his supporters believe that he is a bisexual man. This isn't the first time Harry Styles has talked about his sexuality, however.

After Bolton and Berkley left the satirical news site past year, they reached out to Musk, who chose to back their new venture, a source with knowledge of the project told The Hill.

Keeping many of their friends and former colleagues in the dark, many have speculated that it could be another written satirical news website.

"We can confirm that we have learned nothing from prevailing trends in media and are launching a brand-new comedy project", Bolton and Berkley said in a statement provided to the scribe, without really describing what's the project they're working on.
