E-News - Media Bias again ??

http://www.mellor.net/mellor/enews.nsf/edition/$first

The latest E-News from Go-Auto has a write up on the BARRA range.

Once again, unfortunately it looks like the media is showing its bias. I guess the author was getting bonuses measured on how many times he could mention AU - and how few times he could compare apples with apples.

They still manage to put in an article explaining why VY isnt as bad as it looks on paper (torque wise) - which was a good effort.

Oh well - I guess that only industry people read this thing, so it wont be a big deal.

Very good read but the Holden biases are oozing all over the thing.

Lets compare the BA to AUIII:

Quote:
The XT also has a five-function trip computer, knitted velour trim, our-way electric adjustment of the driver's seat base (as per VY Commodore) and on-glass aerial.
Hah? Werent we comparing BA to AUIII, not BA to VY?????

The spec comparison was good though.
