He’s Back! Auto Critic Scott Burgess Returns To The Detroit News
DETROIT (WWJ )- Scott Burgess is back. The Detroit News car critic who quit after the newspaper asked him to change sections of a rather scathing review of the Chrysler 200 following an advertiser complaint is returning to work.
Burgess withdrew his resignation after meeting with editor and publisher Jon Wolman, who wrote a letter of apology to readers over the weekend.
Burgess told the News on Wednesday “they apologized and I accepted it.”
Burgess was asked to change several passages of his review of the car promoted in a Super Bowl television ad featuring rapper Eminem. Wolman has said that happened after an advertiser complained about “acerbic and disrespectful” material.
The original review appeared in the newspaper’s March 10 print edition. Changes were made to the online version.
