There's plenty of evidence that the mainstream media's tradition of printing automotive puff pieces as car reviews is coming to an end. First, LA Times car columnist Dan "I spun an SLR" Neil wins a Pulitzer Prize, then this, from the North West Indiana Times: "Suzuki's Reno not playing with a full deck". Writer Matt Nauman's wonders "Is this the best the global auto industry can offer?" Even more delightfully, the piece comes from Knight Ridder syndication services. Does your local paper have the stones to print this kind of thing?
