For example, a bankrupt solar panel company has filed a complaint with the ITC asking it to nearly double the price of imported solar panels. If this complaint goes through and an anti-dumping action is taken and a tariff assessed, it could kill off the home solar movement overnight. And you thought Elon Musk was in charge of his own destiny.
And part of this problem is the press. They get things wrong all the time. Mainstream publications routinely print things like "He copyrighted his invention with the Patent Office" or other glaring errors, without bothering to check. And yes, I do this all time, too. I am not The New Yorker or The Washington Post or The New York Times. I don't have a fact-checking department. Of course, neither do they, anymore.
