Pando Daily Journalist Lands PR Gig with Tesla

One thing we learned about the world of tech journalism this week: Pando Daily (or at least Paul Carr) really hates Valleywag. In Hack Turned Flack news, the latter also let us know that Hamish McKenzie will leave his journo gig with the former to take a job in PR with Tesla.

We will now follow the latest chapter in the attempt to market electric cars to the masses with great(er) interest. And if you’re wondering how McKenzie feels about Elon Musk‘s “shoot the messenger” strategy, consider this headline:

Why Elon Musk Is Right to Fight the Media

Should be an interesting year.
