I was sitting at my desk doing busy work listening to Autoline After Hours AAH #314 Presents, Coal and Chorus podcast and one of the guests was Scott Burgess from YAHOO!Autos. He had made a couple of completely factually wrong statements about some things but I just wrote them off as ignorant and ill-informed. THEN at marker 27:55 after he had given a guy from Tesla a lump of coal, he said "Tesla has an exit strategy, their batteries die at 60k miles and have to be replaced" I really do wish that some of the buffoons in the automotive media would be publicly ridiculed when they make such factually incorrect / stupid / just plane wrong to get attention, facts in the public marketplace. I went back and watched the episode to see just what this guy looked like after listening to him. He is the Ron White of the automotive press industry. All he is missing is a cigarette in one hand and a drink in the other.
