Anyone here an Auto Journalist
TBHP has members who are employed in overdrive etc.,(I wont mention any names due to privacy concerns). But there will be some working in Auto Journalism field who dont mind disclosing the fact. So c'mon guys, who among you are with the Auto Mags(or rags), and dont mind admitting.

There are a TON of journalists visiting Team-BHP on an everday basis. Forget that, there are also numerous car manufacturers etc. who are our regular visitors.
Havent you noticed how many stories in these magazines are influenced by us? Total cost of ownership, Optra 1.6 vs NHC, the Bose suspension story, what garage for 5 crores etc.

I think if the journalist's on our site wanted to be known, they would have made themselves public by now. Starting a thread asking them to reveal themselves is really not going to get them to do that.

Speaking of overdrive, have you read the Jan edition. They have been harping about the made in india tag. The best auto magazine, not by Brits etc., but by Indians LOL
No doubt taking a dig at TopGear/autocar/Car.

Finally people who agree with me that the auto magazines suck!
wait that should be in cap coz they SUCK!
Coming back to the topic, I highly doubt anyone will name themselves here, maybe if they wanted to be lynched they would!
The auto journalism scene can be summed up by this quote from Scott Adam's (the writer and creator of dilbert) :
"Reporters are faced with the daily choice of painstakingly researching stories or writing whatever people tell them. Both approaches pay the same"
