My impression is that Insideevs and Green Car Reports are just happy to report on anything EV related. They don't seem to show any favoritism that I've seen.Electrek.co isn't much better
Besides the gm-volt.com front page blog, places like Insideevs and greencar reports seem to have a lot more balance in their reporting and articles without hearty injections of Tesla fanboism (or GM/Bolt/Volt hatred) into every sentence.
What do you expect from a site with a TSLA ticker in the header?Electrek.co isn't much better
You know the old saying your mother taught you, "If you can't say anything bad about GM, don't say anything at all. Or make something up."CleanTechnica will report the slightest bit of good news about tesla cars, but has said nothing about the positive Bolt reviews from Consumer Reports, Car and Driver, Motor Trend or Forbes.
I ruffle their feathers a lot of times... I try to be balanced in my comments though, and they concluded that I am a GM fan and a Tesla hater.I've personally gotten into arguments with some of the authors at CleanTechnica about miss information on the Bolt EV. They have a very slanted opinion on the Bolt EV and I would even go so far as to say that they feel threatened by it.
Personally I think it's a good sign that CleanTechnica is not reporting on the Bolt EV. That means that they are having trouble finding fault with the car.
So, when I take delivery in late November/early December, whom should I send a preliminary review to?This is what whoever "Ken" is posted to me in the comments section of that "Bolt EV delayed 3 months" BS article:
My original comment: Irresponsible journalism...er, blogging at it's worst.
When GM does indeed deliver Bolts later this year, make sure to post an apology to your readers for misleading them.
"Ken: Wrong. The information about a delay is completely accurate - no preorders until 3 months later than promised and further strong indication that there will be no deliveries to the public until the spring of 2017.
So it is you that should actually apologize."
I'm still waiting for my apology. They actually changed the title of the article first (from "Bolt delayed 3 months" to "Bolt pre-order timing delayed 3 months"), then completely pulled the article outright when it was clear their article was 100% wrong. Lol
Suffice to say, don't expect a "hands on" review of the Bolt by Cleantechnica anytime soon...unless they buy one themselves, as they are now probably on the bottom of the list for media drives.
