The email that @snd_wagenseil @thepacketrat and I used during one of our media training talks is now the subject of a court filing. In it, Elon Musk completely fails - in writing / on record - to understand off the record and on background. Time for a follow-up post I guess. @snd_wagenseil @thepacketrat The first section... off the record... is here. Item 43, is where things go wrong. Just because "off the record" is at the top of the email, there is no "explicit" instruction. Both you and the journalist need to agree before anything is off record.
