Boeing trying to kill SpaceX?

Boeing may have used a lobbying firm to plant a scathing opinion piece about SpaceX in US news outlets. At stake is billions of dollars in NASA contracts:

Musk doesn't exactly have high credibility right now.

SpaceX doesn't really have anything someone else can't copy if they invest the $$$$$.

It's not reliable to have a business where you only have 1 customer (government).

Some employee whistleblew that Musk was shipping with unsafe bad batteries. Musk fired the guy, and told the press he was a spy.

Musk lies about everything. He is a liar.

"not reliable to have only one customer"?

Tell that to the Russians, who've been launching 1960's technology to the space station.

On the other hand, it's true, Boeing and Lockheed couldn't have succeeded with JUST NASA contracts.  DOD is really their bread and butter.
