A 60 Minutes segment uploaded yesterday claims that Russia’s air campaign in Syria is really a propaganda fueled, dumb-bomb slinging adventure that has had questionable results, with goals that reach well beyond Syria itself — the same conclusions that Foxtrot Alpha has made for quite some time now.
60 Minutes traveled to Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar to take a brief look inside the 14 month-old air war against ISIS over Iraq and Syria. While this wasn’t as detailed a report on the campaign as many would have liked, the piece did delve into its growing costs for the United States.
Last night, 60 Minutes aired a report on how BP is trying to get out of a contract that has forced the oil giant to pay billions in reparations stemming from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, even to people who weren't directly affected by the disaster. The funny thing is that BP has no one to blame but itself.
You know that Tesla Model S on 60 Minutes on Sunday that was unusually vocal? CBS is now admitting there were some noises accompanying footage of that car being driven that should not have been there.
Anyone watching 60 Minutes' interview with Elon Musk? They keep dubbing motor noises over driving footage of the Model S. It sounds like they recorded a motorcycle engine and used it to spice up the car footage. Whatever it is, it's not the sound of a Tesla. (Update: 60 Minutes admitted to dubbing the sound)
As mentioned in a few posts, 60 Minutes did a story on Lamborghini, actually it was the second story the venerable news show has done on the tractor maker. Scott Pelley presented the segment and it was well done. Within the first few seconds we see Pelley being blown away by driving a Gallardo. Of course all the…
60 Minutes, a television program for old people on CBS, will be airing a segment on Lamborghini tonight. That'll give you something to think about when you see those adult diaper ads.
Welcome to Sunday Matinee, where we highlight classic car reviews or other longer videos I find on YouTube. Kick back and enjoy this blast from the past.
In my weekly search for classic ads, I came across this real gem from 1986. The ad itself is fun but relatively unremarkable — we have an Audi sedan showing off its impressive AWD system by driving up a steep and snowy ramp, leading you to wonder how good it is on the street. Are you ready for an Audi?
When it came time to advertise the struggling 5000 model for 1987, Audi decided to take the road less traveled. That road wound itself around a Mercedes and BMW in a circular fashion, creating a vintage advertisement that hasn't aged any better than most Audi 5000s.
If you missed last night's Top Gear segment on 60 Minutes — or jumped off something because of the unemployment segment — here's an American news magazine finally covering the most popular television show... in the world. Plus bonus footage!
Top Gear super producer Andy Wilman tells 60 Minutes the source of The Stig's silence is the inability of finding a racing driver "capable of an intelligent comment." They then try to get him to talk. It doesn't work.
Last night's bitch-fest by Andy Rooney on 60 Minutes' starts with his inability to discern the difference between cars and then as usual, inexplicably moves towards something only quasi-tangentially related. In this case, license plates and state slogans. Although there's no real point he's driving at, it's funny in…
We remember this clip vividly. Given the date, we were a mere nine years old at the time, and our dad come down the hall to excitedly to pull us away from our obsessive Lego habit to come watch, saying "Lamborghini's gonna be on 60 Minutes!. Along with the '77 Trans Am, the '69 Dodge Charger and the 308 GTS, the…
On last night's 60 Minutes, GM Vice Chair Bob Lutz took Steve Kroft on a walkthrough of Cadillac's Warren, Michigan design studio, where the brand's angular Art and Science design language took shape. Lutz, ever the tease, upskirted a new Caddy model, revealing floor-to-ceiling grillework in the front and part of a…
On CBS's "60 Minutes" last night, humorist and avuncular crankpot Andy Rooney gave American automakers a rhetorical wet willie in their cauliflower ears. Too many, ill-defined model names, he quipped, have turned the US auto industry into a kaleidoscopic blur of subpar vehicles:He even personalized his Few Minutes…
