Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, continued his criticism of the media on Saturday, saying he was "stunned to see the level of contempt many in media have for their readers."

The big picture: As previously reported, Musk appears to have taken a cue from President Trump in his opposition of the media on Twitter. Axios' Steve Levine reported in December that Musk has a different persona online than he does in person — he "can seek to humiliate people who challenge him or, in his view, cast him in an adverse light." That kind of response is similar to what Trump has used Twitter for as well.

Ex-FDA chief: Pence campaigning after COVID exposure puts others at risk

Former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb said "the short answer is yes" when asked whether Vice President Mike Pence is putting others at risk by continuing to campaign after several aides tested positive for COVID-19, stressing that the White House needs to be "very explicit about the risks that they're taking."

Why it matters: The New York Times reports that at least five members of Pence's inner circle, including his chief of staff Marc Short and outside adviser Marty Obst, have tested positive for the virus. Pence tested negative on Sunday morning, according to the VP's office, and he'll continue to travel for the final stretch of the 2020 campaign.

Marc Short, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, tested positive for the coronavirus Saturday and is quarantining, according to a White House statement.

Why it matters: Short is Pence's closest aide, and was one of the most powerful forces on the White House coronavirus task force. Pence and second lady Karen Pence tested negative for the virus on Sunday morning, according to the vice president's office.
