Motor Trend Editor In Chief: "I'm Not Proud Of What I Write"

motor trend editor in chief im not proud of what i write

Last night, while driving out to look at a Heritage Golden Eagle archtop, I got into an argument with Motor Trend’s Ladyboy-In-Chief, Edward “Cop Killer” Loh. During that argument, Loh repeatedly refused to admit that he was proud of his work at Motor Trend. I have to admit that I can’t blame him: that’s the kind of job where you just lie there and take it. Having been bullied out of teaching by super-scary high-school children, Loh really doesn’t have much else he’s qualified to do. Jalopnik’s Matt Hardigree saw the slapfight and decided to test the adage that there’s no such thing as bad publicity.

This whole thing is a bunch of inside baseball crap and not really worthy of TTAC’s readers. So, I’d like to use the comments section of this article for something else. Unlike Mr. Loh, I’m personally proud to be affiliated with my media outlet — TTAC — and I’m interested in providing content that our readers want to see. Tell us what you want to see, and we will do our best to provide it. Unless you want to see me taking a shot at little Edward’s mom. I don’t get paid enough to do that.

    Suggested content? On the political side, stick with the Truth (calling out the car rags, consumer rags, manufacturers, environmentalists, unions, politicians, regulators, etc.). But try to keep it relevant. Some of the insider stuff gets a little esoteric and/or catty. On the car side, +1 on the new-car comparo suggestion. Even if you have to splice together two separate reviews, or pair them in some way. It's just more interesting to read about cars in a context than in a vacuum.

    All these mouth breathers suggesting Jack is a troll can go to hell. It seems like they'd be better suited for Motor Trend home delivery - lets keep auto journalism strictly by the book, right? Jack mixes things up and he occasionally writes so well, I quietly get pissed realizing I'm not that creative. I come to TTAC to be entertained and like it or not, his pieces are quite entertaining.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but this article (or lack of one) is as far as I can tell not an attack on anyone else, but a question asked by Jack, to us, about how he can avoid becoming someone who can't say he's proud of what he's writing. And as far as I have read (only just a year or something), you can still keep your pride Jack, and thanks to those who actually come up with suggestions. To those who keep criticizing, I hope some of what you write can be used as constructive criticism, not that I fear Jack won't keep annoying you in the future ;)

      "Correct me if I’m wrong, but this article (or lack of one) is as far as I can tell not an attack on anyone else" Yes, you are wrong. Of course, it's an attack piece.

    "Unlike Mr. Loh... I’m interested in providing content that our readers want to see." Hint: this is not it.
