Detroit News auto writer quits after editors soften review
Ray Wert reports Scott Burgess quit as Detroit News auto writer on Wednesday after editors gave in to a request by an advertiser to water down his negative review of the Chrysler 200. "Yes, I resigned from The Detroit News as of today and I have been sending notes to carmakers announcing such," says the critic. "The resignation was not planned. I choose not to answer the reasons for the resignation."
