Uncle Carroll's Fairy Tales: What kind of parallel universe is he living in?, by SAAC’s Rick Kopec. Tuesday, 10 June 2008. Road & Track magazine (July 2008 issue) joins Hot Rod magazine (June 2008 issue) in the motor-publishing industry's relentless ratcheting-down of professional journalistic standards: don't check the sources, don't check the allegations, just run the interview unchallenged and publish the story. These automotive rag-amuffins must think that their readers are too witless to know any better: i.e., “If we print it, they'll believe it.” Sigh.

Trying To Rewrite History—and not getting away with it, by SAAC’s Rick Kopec. Sunday, 20 April 2008. It's about Carroll Shelby throwing Peter Brock under the bus in the upcoming (June) issue of Hot Rod Magazine. Even a brief, most cursory, simple checking-of-the-facts of The Legend’s “recollections” (we’re talkin’ Journalism 101: Verify, Verify, Verify!) would’ve put the kibosh on Hot Rod’s publishing of this journalistic disgrace.
