    Whereas debating is part of the interviewer Lemon's job. So I would say Lemon came out looking worse on balance.
    This was an interview, not a debate. Lemon’s job is to ask questions, period. You might take issue with his line of questioning, or his argumentative tone, and that’s fine, but the questions he posed, were related to the controversial and often incendiary comments Musk has made, and it was pretty obvious Musk, either didn’t have an answer for, or did not want to discuss.
    Hence his little temper tantrum, towards the end of the interview.

    I didn't think Lemon had an argumentative tone. I thought he was quite mild, but maybe that's because I am more used to a harder British style interview tone than perhaps a softer American interview style.

    I thought Lemon's line of questioning was fine. At times I wondered if part of his mission was to test Musk's free speech credentials, meaning how would Musk react to asking some quite personal questions (medical stuff and family stuff, for example).

    I thought Musk answered most of the questions put to him reasonably well and I didn't feel that he had a temper tantrum at the end.

    I don’t know what Lemon is referring to in his intro to the interview when he asks “What went wrong?” Is he suggesting Musk should have stayed for as long as Lemon wanted him to when Lemon knew he only had one hour? Lemon was given an hour for his interview and Musk gave him at least 5 minutes more than that. Seems fair enough to me to end it when they did.

    Yes, that's a problem for many, especially in the cities. Not for me, I have power in the garage. Low power but enough if charging over night.

    In case of your 'mass production' of E Cars, you'll need massive improvement of cables etc.

    Denmark have long started, and as this is Denmark, by "taxing our way out of the costs", with around 10 Baht per Kilowatt Hour ..Transportation Fee.

    No grit will be able to carry all of us charging the Car + cooking, dishwashers etc.

    I'm talking main cables here and not if you are able to charge from your Garage.

    Most people have 35 Amp coming in here, I guess. That'll do.

    Prepare for dug up roads

    OK. I'll rephrase it. I didn't think Lemon had an aggressive tone. And although they were in a discussion, their discussion wasn't like they were in an argument with each other.

    Is that less confusing?

    Sure

    A discussion without argumentation is quite normal
