    Jalopnik silence is deafening!

    Here is a supposedly auto-focused website, devoted ostensibly to all things auto related and there hasn't been a peep about the Automobile Magazine, Yahoo! Auto, or even Motor Trend CAR OF THE FRICKIN' YEAR!

    WOW!

    The Truth About Cars as well, hasn't seemed to comment at all on these recent developments, even though they were so keen on independent range verification, and then Motor Trend verified it, and then, nothing.

    It's hard to admit when you are wrong. It's really hard to admit when you are so far off the mark you look foolish. I doubt they'll write anything about the Model S until there is a sliver of negative news.

    Difficult or not, journalistic ethics... heck, general ethics... is far more valuable than being "right". You'd think they'd get that and take it as an opportunity.

    It's auto news, right? All they have to do is mention it. Strange but not unexpected.

    By remaining silent Jalopnik and The Truth about Cars merely reenforce their own irrelevance.

    Do you think that Chris Paine will have them as cameos in his next movie, Triumph of the Electric Car?

    Jalopnik is frat-boy journalism. They bombastically denigrate things they don't like and over-hype the things they do (most of these are idiotic). It's not journalism, it's theater for like-minded folks. Like Fox News but for cars.

    Jalopnik doesn't exactly hold the MT award in the highest regard:

    MotorTrend's 2012 Car of the Year is an epic win for mediocrity
