You thought this would end with one little rant here last week? No way. The ripples are still in the pool from GM's move to retract its advertising from the LA Times because of a negative column. While Lutz and company are still silent over at the Fastlane blog, the first place they should go to talk about this in our opinion, pundits are weighing in. The Truth About Cars takes GM to task saying they've "lost the plot." But the column also points out the challenges the move might have on the weak-willed automotive press. Joe Sherlock at The View Through The Windshield comments about the General doing something similar in the 1990s after a negative Motor Trend story on the Buick Riviera. His point? Motor Trend is still around and the Riv isn't.
