More Straw, Less Muscle: Media Control Program at Barrett-JacksonS


From the Hatfield and McCoy department comes news from Deep Dish, our source on the inside. The story begins with Craig Jackson of Barrett-Jackson Auction fame. The plot gets soupier with the entry of editor Keith Martin of Sports Car Market, the premiere magazine of the automobile auction world. Seems Keith penned a riff focusing in on the coming burst of the muscle car bubble which got Jackson teeth-gnashing Yosemite Sam-style pissed off. Jackson was evidently blinded by this same anger when he had Martin escorted off the Barrett-Jackson Auction grounds this morning. Martin was permanently banned to boot. We say blinded for what Jackson didn't know was that Martin was at the auction to gather and gawk not only for Sports Car Market, but also some outfit that calls itself the New York Times.
