Mailbag: Does CNET hate the earth?Or is it just Brian Cooley? We investigate that and other mysteries, and Hater Mail returns in this week's Mailbag.
^M00:00:00 [ Music ] ^M00:00:07 >> Hey, everybody. I'm Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET mailbag. This is the show where we take your feedback about the stuff we do here at CNET. Now, today I've put together a lovely collection of personal messages to some of out CNET TV personalities. First up, Amilio [assumed spelling], who says, "Does Brain Cooley hate the earth? He's always putting down green cars and calling them boring. They're the future of cars. And to tell the truth, they look pretty awesome. Love CNET." Well, Brain, what's the deal? Do you hate the earth? >> I don't hate the earth. If I hated the earth I wouldn't drool all over all these really cool, clean diesels I see at these auto shows. If you listen to the car tech podcast, I'm always loving the really cool hybrids that have great performance. But when you go to a car show, what do you want to see? You want to see real sassy, sexy cool cars. >> Hot rods. >> And when you go booth to booth to booth -- and everyone one of them's burning natural gas, and are getting 70 mph by going 0 to 60 in three days, and na-na-na, ugh. It gets old. I'm sorry. I love the earth. I love earth. But if I didn't, I would have the backing of no less than the vice-chairman of General Motors, who just recently -- a few days ago -- said this whole global warming thing is crock of beep. So, you know. I'm not with him, but if I was, I'd be in good company. >> He hates the earth. >> I love the earth. >> Next, CNET user, Juan [assumed spelling], wrote in with a comment for Tom. "On the recent CNET Live, Tom's 'Things We Crave' was a Segway unicycle thing made by Bombardier, Canada. In the show, he says, 'bom-bar-deer,' which is pronounced in English. If you knew better, you would know that Canada is bilingual and that 'bombardier' is French, so it is really 'bom-bar-dee-yay,' not 'bom-bar-deer.' Just want to point that out. I got nothing against Tom. Thanks, and I love your bits." How embarrassing for Tom. He doesn't know anything. This was an intriguing message that we got from Tujoe [assumed spelling], "Natali, what color X5 do you want?" Dude, are you handing out BMW X5s? 'Cause if you are, come see me next. 'Kay? Thanks. Love ya. Mark wrote to us, and actually, let's get one of our pet Englishmen in here to read this properly. >> "The excellent Loaded presenter does not say Nokia wrong. It is, in fact, the way we Brits say it. So there. Think, Mark." Think Mark, indeed. And now, let's end with a little hater mail. Bruno Bye [assumed spelling] wrote in about Natali as well, saying, "I see all this lover mail for her, and I've got a nit to pick. She's does this weird side-to-side gyration thingie, especially when doing the daily preview. It reminds me of Stevie Wonder playing the piano." ^M00:02:32 [ Music ] ^M00:02:40 By the way, can you give me her digits so I can call to say, 'I love you?' She's so much easier on the eyes -- eye candy -- than that hag, Molly Wood." Hag? Hag? I'm, like, two years older than Natali Del Conte, you jerk. Also, I'm pretty sure she's not gonna take your call, jerk. Double jerk. That about does it for this week. Keep the feedback coming, email@example.com or send me a postcard. 235 Second Street. San Francisco, California. 94105. See you next time. ^M00:03:09
