‘The Problem Is Him’ Kara Swisher on Mark Zuckerberg’s crisis and ours. “He’s not an asshole, and he’s never been an asshole. That’s not the problem here. It’s easy when they’re assholes. When it’s a Travis Kalanick? Simple, just flush the guy down the toilet. When it’s Mark, it’s harder. He’s an important technologist. But people like Steve Jobs and others really disdained what Mark was doing. He’s willing to take people’s private information and tell you he knows what’s best. But he doesn’t know what’s best, and he never did. It’s so easy to make him evil. I don’t think he’s evil. That’s sort of an easy way out of it. There’s a really famous W. H. Auden quote. “Evil is unspectacular and always human.” Mark is very human. That’s the problem.”

“I drove the Tesla last night. A big heads up to every short. First time in a Tesla. The car is a spaceship. I wouldn’t get in the way of @elonmusk … you don’t want to get in the way of a spaceship,” says @Scaramucci on why he is bullish on $TSLA.
