Robert Farago, curmudgeonly editor of The Truth About Cars, former Jalopnik contributor and Top Gear USA attempted host has parted ways with TTAC, the site he founded four years ago.

This jibes with what we've been hearing about their budget issues. Writers for the site have been forced to accept near Internet slave wages for their work and we've heard many second-hand complaints as well as seen some of their staff also part ways with the site. The rumor is that it's a lack of editorial budget and respect from the current company's owner that led to his departure but we know nothing for sure yet other than the new owners plan on distributing his paycheck to the writers.
