The big story in the media, and of course with TTAC at present is the GM-Chrysler merger. Or whatever you want to call it, as the transaction’s characteristics are reported differently with every day. We’re covering that, in all its ridiculous glory (or glorious ridiculousness) with the same “nothing but the truth – and the occasional pun” attitude you’ve come to expect from TTAC. But there’s another, albeit interlinked, story here: the utter failure of the media to report on GM-Chrysler with any meaningful scrutiny or candor. Whether it is the hypocrisy of the reporters or the lack of thoughtful commentary, this casts a shadow on the value of the information and opinions we read and hear, from the Detroit News to CNBC to CNN Money. So while our mantra is focus, focus, focus (with no hat tip to Ford), we’re focusing on the news at present: not just the message, but the messenger.
