The popular automotive blogger attacked by Tesla for his investigative report on a Tesla suspension safety issue tells Breitbart News that there is more to the story that he hasn’t published yet.

Automotive blogger and Bloomberg View writer, Edward Niedermeyer, broke a story on his blog, the Daily Kanban, about a potential suspension safety issue with Tesla vehicles. Within a day, Tesla responded to Niedermeyer by name and in part by trying to attack the messenger.

“I would say I’m more disappointed than surprised by Tesla’s response,” Niedermeyer told Breitbart News. “It’s a pretty typical diversionary PR tactic that’s not going to work because there is a lot more to this story that will be coming out.”

After reading the Tesla statement attacking him, Niedermeyer blasted Tesla on Twitter

“If you say anything even remotely critical about Tesla or Elon, no matter how true, the Tesla groupies dismiss you as being either a shill for big-oil or a Tesla short seller,” Niedermeyer said. “It’s really getting old and it’s not even good for Tesla.”

Niedermeyer also called out Tesla owner Elon Musk:
