The Media are Just Awful

There’s a saying to the effect of: “Anytime the media write about something you know, you’ll see that they get it wrong”. On that note, I saw this republished press release news story from the AP about the new 2015 Mustang.

It’s all pretty basic boilerplate stuff, until we get to this:

The car sits on the Mustang’s first independent rear suspension, which should improve handling because it lets the wheels operate independently.

I’ve personally owned 2 Mustangs with IRS. One was a 1999 model year car. You can read about it here.

While it’s difficult to imagine a less important issue than this, it does raise the question: What else do the media get wrong, that you depend upon to make important decisions?
