Tesla chief Elon Musk, who manages to stay in the news, recently engaged in a debate over journalism.

In a series of tweets, Musk shared his definition of journalism, saying that 99% of it is “reading someone else’s story on the internet, changing, it up a little and pressing send”.

“Weirdly, some publications still print millions of paper copies every day!” he said.

A Twitter user questioned: “When you were a kid, did you ever deliver newspapers?”

“Yeah, but that was 8,000 years ago,” he replied.

These tweets came after Musk made headlines for being into an affair with Google co-founder Sergey Brin's wife Nicole Shanahan.

However, Musk had clarified that he and Brin remain friends and denied a report that he had been involved in an affair with Shanahan.
