MSNBC blows it with “Worst Car List”

Okay, here’s the list.

And here’s MSNBC blowing its credibility to hell in a single paragraph:

….Our information about fuel efficiency is from the EPA’s Web site, where the American cars with the worst mileage listed are Dodge Durango and Ram 1500 models filled with E85 — a blend of ethanol and gasoline. An EPA spokeswoman says the agency does not consider alternative-fuel vehicles in selecting the most and least fuel-efficient vehicles. We, however, do not see why ethanol-powered cars would not be fair game for the list. 

Hey, guys!  How about the fact that anybody who fuels up with E85 can tell you that you get much worse mileage than if you fill your tank with straight gasoline?

Gee, you think maybe the EPA has a clue?  Did you at least bother to ask, before doing the “Narcissus shuffle?”

  1. Worse mileage? Sure, per gallon of fuel. That’s so not the point. Multiply those gallons of fuel by .15 to see one’s contribution to OPEC is the point.

  2. I don’t mind that issue at all… but talk about publicly demonstrating that you are not competent to write the article…
