I work in communications and this just strikes me as exceptionally poor copy.

Someone in the news room looked at the tweet and tried to make it sound more conversational, without understanding the very different meaning of what they were saying.
Makes sense, I was thinking it was something along those lines. Fact checking is a dead art in the 24/7 news cycle

They say print is dead, but the editors were all killed off long before. 🤣

I wouldn’t be so quick to judge the reporters on fact checking. Truth is you’ve lived and are continuing to live through the corporatization of news organizations.

Newspapers, local news and larger organizations have fewer reporters and editors than ever and they’re younger than ever. They're largely poorly paid and trying their level best to make it in a meatgrinder of an industry. Cost cutting has its effects.

Sorry if this has already been mentioned, but it appears that the trim piece on the gear tunnel may be the piece that is misaligned. The crease above it appears to be right in line with the crease in the adjacent panel. Also, the gaps look good. That's just my take, your view may vary.

I’m not sure if there is a local news media anymore, pretty sure all those have been bought up by Sinclair Broadcast Group. But in all seriousness it is a sad state of affairs

I found this part interesting too: "it cannot yet legally initiate actual deliveries"
Is there some other regulatory piece that they're still waiting for?
Do they have issues with direct to customer sales still?

It’s my understanding that these are bound for Colorado, and I know that was called out as a location for media test drives. My guess is that’s what these are for.
