  •  Is this Broder guy a car expert (1+ / 0-)

    radical simplicity

    especially electric or even hybrid cars? If not, then why did the NYT allow him to write a performance-based article (as opposed to one covering its claimed features or its owners thoughts about owning one) on it since he was clearly not qualified to do that? There's a reason that David Pogue reviews electronic devices and not, say, restaurants or fashion. How was this "news that's fit to print"? There's a methodology to testing and evaluating anything that only experts are qualified to employ, and clearly Broder isn't one of them.

    Reminds me of Jerry Pournelle's amazingly silly articles on PCs back when Byte magazine was still being published, as he clearly was in over his head.
