CBS showed video clips of a Tesla Model S car driving on the street during the segment. The clips was accompanied by the sounds of a traditional gas-powered engine, which is odd since Tesla’s electric battery-powered cars are virtually soundless, save for a slight “whirring” noise. A CBS spokesperson told FoxNews that “an audio editing error” had been made. “We regret the error,” CBS added.
Tesla declined to comment to FoxNews about the incident.
The CBS segment on Tesla and Elon Musk was introduced by correspondent Scott Pelley. The CBS newsman’s wife owns a Model S car. CBS indicated that the erroneous audio would be removed from the segment.
TSLA stock fell about 1% in Monday morning trading. CBS stock, on the other hand, sank more than 2%. Over the past year, TSLA stock has gained more than 400%, while CBS stock has rise more than 30%.
