John McCain Thinks We'll Have 100-Mile-Per-Charge Batteries By Election?

So we had the Today Show on in the background this morning while getting ready to run over to NPR when we heard some story about gas prices. We glanced up and noticed a guy who looked exactly like John McCain talking to Matt Lauer. We mean, it looked like McCain, it sounded like McCain — he even moved his cheeks like… » 6/11/08 10:20am 6/11/08 10:20am

Today Show Takes GPS Testing Seriously

Okay, we know Boston is a tough place for GPS navigation units, but we didn't know it was this tough. This morning, the Today Show pitted three drivers against each other using three different GPS navigation units from TomTom, Garmin and Magellan navigating in Boston.

Josh Duhamel Looks Embarrassed Talking About Transformers On Today Show

Today Show Heads To Michigan To Cover...The New York Auto Show?

Not only did NBC head to Dearborn, MI to cover the New York Auto Show because apparently there's just not enough cars in the city that's big, red and delicious to do coverage right, they also managed to find a male FoMoCo engineer willing to don an "empathy belly" on TV.

The Today Show's Looking For Hot Fun In The Summer Time; Drops The Top…

NBC's Today Show took a few minutes on Monday to talk about the hot temperatures — and some hot convertibles. They brought out Car & Driver Editor-in-Chief Csaba Csere — driving out a Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500, a Saturn Sky, a Volvo C70 with a bit of a hard- on top for Anne Cury to drive, and finally a Lambo…

Toyota's As American As Apple Pie: So Sayeth the 'Today Show'

The 'Today Show' ran a nice little piece this morning on the "fact" that foreign automakers are just as "American" as can be — and yet again we're wondering if the mainstream media ever does their homework on these pieces or if they do — what's their litmus test for what makes a company "American." We feel like maybe…
