FastLane Daily, the longest-running car show on YouTube and one of the oldest shows period on the platform, is no more. In a tearful message to more than 300,000 subscribers, host Derek DeAngelis announced that new owner Time Inc. told them yesterday that the channel would be put on “hiatus for the foreseeable future.”
Category-wide sales on Amazon are few and far between, and this is one of the most wide-ranging discounts they’ve ever offered: Promo code HOLIDAY30 will take 30% off any physical book they sell, up to $10.
Yesterday, more than 100 Gawker Media editorial employees voted on the question of whether to be represented by the Writers Guild of America, East for the purpose of collective bargaining—that is, whether we want to form a union. The results are in.

On July 11 of last year, I arrived to work at the MailOnline newsroom in New York City and saw Keith Poole, our managing editor, standing outside smoking a cigarette. Even from a hundred yards away, it was clear that Poole—a generally pleasant Englishman who was the managing editor of the Daily Mail at the time—was…
The National Transportation Safety Board issued a press release this evening acknowledging that a summer intern had erroneously confirmed four fake Asiana pilot names to Bay Area TV station KTVU. The release corroborates KTVU's claim that an NTSB official had confirmed that "Ho Lee Fuk" and "Sum Ting Wong," among…
Sunday's Indy 500 was one for the record books in nearly every quantifiable way. It also had a popular winner in Brazilian Tony Kanaan. But one Atlanta TV station says IndyCar will never top NASCAR because "Americans prefer American racers." Oh, and they say the finish was a farce.
ESPN is laying off a portion of its staff today, a network spokesman confirms to us. How many? ESPN won't say. A tipster told us earlier today that it would be more than 400 staffers. A source at ESPN said that number is a little high, but it appears to be in the hundreds.
If for some strange reason you get your news from places other than Jalopnik (why would you?), you may be outraged over the millions of dollars in federal assistance NASCAR is reportedly getting in, thanks to a rider that was tucked into the fiscal cliff bill.
The photo you see here was sent to us two weeks ago by a reader named Dan, who works in Manhattan Beach, Calif. This is the message Dan sent with it:
Slate recently ran this article, explaining to people what the little arrow on the gas gauge means.

And maybe I'm surprised the answer, "it shows what side the gas…
"It is eating me alive. Literally. It is killing me. Literally." I hope those are the first words of nerd/sex/techblogger Jen Friel's write up of the Dodge Dart, which she's currently in Austin reviewing on an all-expense paid trip from Chrysler, and not just the painfully hyperbolic moaning of an oversharing blogger.
The man in the image above is a "saboteur" — not a pro-democracy protester.
Angus Mackenzie's long-haired reign as Editor-in-Chief of the buffest of buff books, Motor Trend, is finally over, according to many social media postsings. In his place is former MT Executive Editor and Sport Compact Car EIC Ed Loh. Haven't figured out what distinguishing character of Loh we'll make fun of…
How did three unaffiliated car magazines all end up with the same cover? Who's copying whom? Is there some, secret collusion among the US's Automobile, the UK's Car and Germany's Auto-Bild: Sportscars? Nope. It's just business.
Jowly asshole Roger Ailes, the chairman of Fox News, is a security-obsessed paranoiac who spies on his employees, installed blast-resistant plexiglass in his office windows, carries a concealed weapon, and travels with a full-time retinue of bodyguards. All of which may help explain why the cops were called to his New…
Yes, the near-throwdown that erupted in the New York auto show press room last week was as cringe-worthy as it sounds. But it did impart some Old New York Barroom onto the stench of sweaty Brooks Brothers.
The Discovery network, perhaps hoping to pick up eyeballs from a SPEEDTV network no longer interested in doing car-related programming, is rebranding its HD Theater channel as "Velocity" and aiming squarely at guys with short attention spans and lots of money.
