automobile editor jean jennings stars in jeep pimpatorial

One of TTAC's Best and Brightest– an automotive journo who wishes to remain anonymous– sent us this link to what he calls a " pimpatorial." It stars Jean Jennings, Automobile's Editor-in-Chief for the last seven years (with an '06 interregnum). Although Ms. Jennings does not reveal her title in the intro clip (or thereafter), she clearly identifies her employer before gushing about the Jeep brand. Apparently, Ms. Jennings disagrees with those critics who view the Compass as a brand abomination. In fact, she claims that Jeep has "remained true to its original mission." There's more. Lots more. Jennings spreads the video love over all seven Jeep models. I hereby declare Automobile's editorial integrity officially, irrefutably, defunct.

    Every time I saw the Pfizer ad (featuring the eminent "Doctor"), I would mentally edit his speil to say: "Hello, I'm Doctor Jarvik; I tried and tried to perfect the artificial heart, but I failed. Since I've given up, it's not officially a sell-out if I suggest that you take this drug for the rest of your life. Oh, and I'm not a medical doctor, but a PhD." It really depends on the individual at which point that the vocation becomes secondary to economic practicality -- only the truly wealthy can stand their ground and stay pure.

    "I hereby declare Automobile's editorial integrity officially, irrefutably, defunct..." I've often felt the same way about this site, but I still come back. Look at it this way...I still pay for my Automobile subscription, and I'm not paying here. Fun stuff.
