Leno on Tesla: 'We've reached the point where success is jeered'

CNBC - Jay Leno Interview

Car enthusiast and comedian Jay Leno, who will be hosting a new show on CNBC Prime time in 2015, calls Tesla "brilliant" and says attacks on the company due to a handful of fires is ridiculous.

“I don’t understand why people attack this car [Tesla].It is made in America, by Americans. It is built local. You know, we’re becoming like the British – we like noble failures more than we like success.”
