I once participated on a march on the White House for women’s reproductive rights. After the march, we all plopped down in the quad for lunch and my group happened to be sitting next to another who had dubbed themselves dykes on bikes, and featured lots of leather, but nary a beard among them. Thinking about that experience made me remember this sixties movie, and I think that lady biker gang would approve of its poster.

Redactnik posted a story today by objet d'mancrush Chris Harris. I feel that A) enough people here have fled that site in confusion and disgust, and B) this is worth reading, such that it's worthwhile of me to post a link to it;
Here's the story
I've linked to the far more readable mobile version, as recommended by Penny Arcade. You can get this by putting 'm.' between 'http://' and 'jalopnik.com/somenumbers/story-title'Loading…
It was an entertaining read. They had it up earlier with a much harsher title, something along the lines of "Ferrari tries to make every car journalist its bitch".

Chris Harris writes rude words on the internet!
There is no reason Ferrari or any of the blue chip marques should be allowed to have things their own way. If Autocar, CAR, Road & Track, Top Gear etc. decided not to play ball, or properly exposed how things are with regards to the ridiculous testing charades and hoops the journos have to jump through, the motoring print world would be a far better place.
Failing this, the "buff books" and glossies are marching towards complete irrelevancy. The monthlies have become far too industry dependent, but that goes with the territory. Let's celebrate maverick road-testers gaining more power and having the exclusive ability to tell things as they are. In their search for the truth let's hope the public at large turns to smaller, less influenced channels, eventually giving the independent outlets the upper hand. Automotive Journalism could still be injected with new life.Loading…
