(Mary Altaffer/Associated Press) Fox News host Howard Kurtz blasted reports that said his Sunday show mistakenly posted a graphic that showed the cable network is less trusted than its competitors. “The Associated Press should be embarrassed by a story that utterly distorts what happened yesterday on my program ‘Media Buzz,’ ” Kurtz wrote Monday on Facebook. The news agency had published a … [Read more...] about Fox News host slams incorrect reports saying graphic showed network is least trusted

People got confused.For almost a week, Ingram said, she was functionally unable to use Twitter because of the onslaught of angry tweets directed at a different journalist on the other side of the world.

Tweet TweetWith the ribbon cutting at SEMA 2010 no more than a week away, participants are seriously starting to show off what they’re bringing. The latest news to come from them is being spread by Fox Marketing’s very own Brian Fox who is eager to reveal his tuned up Lexus LS 600h L. The list of modifications the Lexus LS 600h L suffered started with a fiberglass aerokit created by Artisan Spirits. The Artisan Spirits kit comes with new everything, bumpers, fenders, side skirts, wings, HID fog lights and a “smoking” treatment for the taillights. The Lexus LS 600h L “Brian Fox” also has a set of 20 inch Candy Copper wheels that look as if they are wire wheels and the appropriate rubber underneath them. As far as the interior is concerned the changes are relatively minute but the exterior still has one more trick up its sleeve. The exterior is painted in a dark green unique color called Glacier Green and it’s been touched up with Satin Black … [Read more...] about Fox Marketing is taking Lexus LS 600h L to SEMA
Our august editor Mark pointed out to me how I might bring some of the rare, quirky, and oddball cars I’m always posting to our internal Slack chat to you. So here we are, with a segment I’m going to call Rare Rides. Here’s our first entry, from a Hemmings listing, is a fantastic looking Ghia Probe I concept from all the way back before automatic transmissions and air conditioning: 1979. It debuted for the 48th annual Frankfurt International Motor show, and — unlike many concept vehicles — it actually works. It’s powered by the 2.3-liter engine from a contemporary Mustang. Many of you will undoubtedly take issue with this engine, then tell us all about why it’s so awful. The design managed a drag coefficient of just .22, which is both impressive and important in a post-OPEC Crisis world. For comparison, General Motors tells me a 2014 Corvette Stingray has a drag coefficient of .28. Underneath all the glorious and … [Read more...] about Rare Rides: This 1979 Ghia Probe I is a Fox-body Ford in (Less) Drag
A recurring idea that I can’t let go of goes a little like this: you can get a cheap Fox Mustang shell if you look for longer than three minutes. For every built one there is at least three that are trashed out. A Fox Mustang is nimble, small, and plenty capable of packing V8 power. It makes the perfect pre-runner! Ditch the pointless rear seat in favor of a tire mount, add caging and bracing, fill the engine bay with Windsor goodness, and give the car wacked-out fenders, flares, and rubber capable of handling dirt work. I thought I was mental, and that outside of a couple of rallycross drivers, I’d never see one. Wish, granted. I’m just going to post up the ad verbatim, the seller knocks it out of the park: 1991 Mustang convertible built as a pre-runner baja fun toy. It started out as a 2.3 / automatic. Almost every conversion part I bought brand new, believe it or not I would be selling at a loss at 10K. Custom 1.5″ lift up front, rear lift is provided by … [Read more...] about This 1991 Ford Mustang Is Brilliant! Do You Need A Rally-Style Fox Body In Your Life?
