BusinessWeek's current cover story deals with how blogs impact different businesses. It even pointed to Bob Lutz and GM's Fastlane blog and all the buzz that went around the LA Times brouhaha a few weeks ago. No there's no mention of our musings, or the other dozen or so blogs that said GM overstepped its bounds. No, the story pointed to the Automobear.com article that stuck up for GM. It turns out while GM was hush hush on the topic the company did provide Automobear.com with all the statistics it used in the defense of GM. But the worst part of the story is this line "For a company that's slipping in the auto biz, GM is showing a surprisingly nimble touch with blogs." If Fastlane is nimble we're friggin' Barishnikov.
