Soft-soap, apple-polishing> Koch anti-EV $M spent differently

Electric Vehicle Discussion List mailing list

% Recently, the disruptive (non-EV) troll that is allowed on the evdl posted
I should filter what I post.

For those that do not know, multiple times a day, I manually wade through
searches for EV items EVangels may need to know and evdl readers might enjoy
reading. This should be only taken on by the EVangel with a strong will (and
thick skin) as amongst the cesspool of garbage items the Koch Bros have paid
the media outlets to release, you have to hold your nose to find the few
tolerable items I find and post.

Though I am not keen on censoring/blocking what EVangels get, in a sense, I
am already filtering what I post
 (avoiding the turds and Koch $pew

Note: since the new year, there have been few auto shows for the media to
attend, so there has been a slow down on released EV news items. Also, what
EVs attend these show, leads to media reports of EVs the public can not get
the hands on (yet, in 2020, concepts, and other vw-pr wishful-thinking
inve$tment trolling).

At the beginning of last year, Koch dollar$ were pumping out blatant anti-EV
media releases.
The times have changed to a more soft-soap sell method with an
apple-polishing approach to writing in a style that still leaves the public
uninformed, but with a feeling the author has the public's back/concerns in
mind (its differently styled B.S.).

Below I have placed only a few of incredible amount of unworthy items I come
across. I normally do not post these as they do not seem worthy of your
time. But because that is filtering, I thought it would be wise to offer
these as a (smelly) sample, and let you decide ...
