Cassandra Watch: Autoblog Edition
While TTAC’s been busy chronicling the fall and fall of American automakers’ 100-year hegemony over the domestic auto industry, Autoblog’s been keeping its audience appraised of the latest modded cars, Mustangs and SEMA showpieces. Fair enough. We’re proud to be able to relieve AB of their obligation to blog hard news. But every now and then, AOL’s auto-bitch feels compelled to weigh-in on matters weighty. Normally, they take a predictable editorial line on Detroit’s disasters. That sucks. Good luck! And don’t don’t forget to park your latest whip in the Autoblog Garage. Thanks! So when there’s a change of tone at AB, it can only mean one thing. That REALLY sucks. Chris Shunk provides our excursion to the dark side of the moon (snicker snicker). After reporting on the Treasury Department’s “Just Say No” response to funding the GM – Chrysler merger, Shunk sums-up Motown’s End of Days, AB-style. “There is no doubt these are very troubled times for the U.S. auto industry, and it seems everything is happening very quickly right now. Most forecasts are pointing to a similarly dismal 2009, too, so this mess is far from over.” Thanks for the heads-up.
RF, Never commenting and never forming an opinion about what they are reading are not necessarily the same thing. If you want to think that by not commenting that means they are in agreement with your posting that is your perogative. Also I wish to point out that I never pretend to speak for anyone but myself, although I'm sure there are those who agree as well as disagree with me.
"Four out of nine commenters on this thread expressed some level of dissatisfaction with your product." Uh, hate to break it to you, but four out of nine is a minority. So I guess everything's fine!
