YouTube Wins Lawsuit Claiming Company Is Biased Against Conservatives
YouTube (GOOGL) won a lawsuit brought by conservative talk show host Dennis Prager claiming that the video sharing site is biased against conservative videos.
Prager brought the suit after YouTube started requiring age verification for the videos he placed on the website.
The judge ruled that YouTube wasn't a "state actor" that was subject to First Amendment rules.
"Defendants are private entities who created their own video-sharing social media website and make decisions about whether and how to regulate content that has been uploaded on that website," U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh ruled.
Hedge Fund Manager Says Tesla Has Just 4 Months to Live
Count Vilas Capital Managment Manager John Thompson as one of the non-believers in Tesla (TSLA) .
Thompson told MarketWatch that he believes Tesla will be bankrupt in four months unless the electric vehicle maker can do something drastic.
"Companies eventually have to make a profit, and I don't ever see that happening here. This is one of the worst income statements I've ever seen and between the story and the financials, the financials will win out in this case," Thompson said.
To be fair to Tesla, the biggest position in Vilas' $25 million fund is a short of Tesla.
Tesla shares were down 5.2% Tuesday afternoon.

Uber's Self Driving Cars Suspended From Operating in Arizona
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey ordered Uber to suspend testing its self-driving vehicles in the state, less than a week after a crash involving one of its autonomous vehicles resulted in a fatality.
"Improving public safety has always been the emphasis of Arizona's approach to autonomous vehicle testing, and my expectation is that public safety is also the top priority for all who operate this technology in the state of Arizona," Ducey said in a letter to the company. "The incident that took place on March 18 is an unquestionable failure to comply with this expectation."
Last week Uber temporarily suspended operations from Tempe, San Francisco, Pittsburgh and Toronto -- the other cities where it is testing.
