As well as every other broadcast network.  They stink.

You're right about that EricB.....If Chief wants to talk about Tahoe Hybrids, he needs to call Sean Hannity.  Hannity will put you on the air.  That's was he drives.

EricB.....you are too a Great American!  Do we want to see if Sean Hannity wants Chief to talk about CAFCNA and Tahoe Hybirds?  At least Sean will allow Chief to get the story out without "editing".

Maybe we should get Sean to visit Pigeon Forge in his Tahoe in about 10 days. :4:

OK....I contacted Sean Hannity and told him how Chief's interview was "edited" leaving out pertinent info leaving a biased slant on the story.  I sent him the video clip link to review.

Chief......if Hannity calls, you'll get better "air time" to cover what NBC edited from today's interview :thumbsup:

Great interview and huge kudo's for getting the club some much needed national attention but I guess i'll be the first to be beat on for my going against the stream on this one...  

I respect that chief did an awesome job setting up this site, but am i the only one to feel he was hands down the wrong one to interview for this story?  well, i guess, if u're the news station, he'd be the right one as living proof that we should get outta our suv's for gas sippers since even the guy who founded a HUGE "truck club" did that himself...

as a follow up, lemme point out... he got rid of his when fuel was:

"In comparison, in 2005 the average crude oil price was $50 per barrel and the crude oil cost was 53% of the retail price."

a more "fair", "unbiased" report would include a person who, nearly 3 yrs later STILL drives an Av... who better to tell the story of someone paying $100/fill up than, oh, i don't know, someone who's still doing it?  it boils me that the IMPLICATION here is that he's "trading in his avalanche" right now as we speak (notice the car lot backdrop?)... not the reality that he did it when a barrel of oil was less than HALF what it is now... not a real appropriate portrayal imho from the media...

i guess it doesn't surprise me that the media was unbalanced in their reporting... AGAIN... a more balanced reporting would include folks who've at least TRIED to trade their vehicle in for something more fuel economical but couldn't because of how severely burried they are in their current suv... or those who think every penny for the fuel is worth it to them for the safety their family enjoys in it... or how bout folks who want to drive w/e the he!! they want because THEY earned the money and THEY can decide how they wanna spend their own money !

thanx for the link btw, was great to finally put a face to the name :1:

     I thought I should mention it the Chief's piece was played by the local NBC affiliate here in Nashville. You could SOOOOOooo tell that they cut and chopped up the interview quite a bit to make it sound the way they wanted to. The Chief did look good though, an he got the plug in so  :thumbsup:

Didn't look at it that way Fox.  I guess I just figured they found the guy who started this club for this really nice SUV and figured that would be a person to discuss this kind of thing with, but I do see your point.

Now, before anyone bashes the Fox, let me say that I don't think she was in any way bashing Chief, just saying that interviewing someone who no longer owns such a vehicle is a little biased on the media's part.

I believe the only reason I got two paragraphs in the NY Times was because I was an admin on vacation in Alaska on a motorcycle rather than in my Av. There didn't seem to be much interest or mention about our numbers here being stable or anything about the fact that many people just plain need trucks.

BTW, in about 5,000 miles of driving in BC, Yukon and Alaska, I saw one Prius and it was in Sitka, AK. Sitka is sea-locked and has very few miles of road. Gas there was $4.05 a gallon at the time while it was around $4.50 is Seattle.

Dejavu!! I remember when I went to the auto show and took pictures of the new remodeled Avalanche. I was there for the truck to drive through the popcorn. I stayed for a bit and talked to anyone who would listen about our club. I talked about our first upcoming National GTG. All this was kinda exactly as Chief did. Chief through SHC let us know when and where to watch as news about our club was in the limelight. Just like when I hurried home and began to download pictures and movies, Chief had already posted for all to be ready for something big. DougD and I spent the better part of the day and night getting them online. Just like then I had one member come out and criticize me for doing what I had done. You can't please everyone Chief but thanks for taking the time to remind other Avalanche owners that we're out here.
