DETROIT (AP) -- The auto critic at The Detroit News has resigned after editors deleted online portions of a poor review of the Chrysler 200, a car that was promoted in a popular Super Bowl TV ad starring rapper Eminem.
In the March 10 edition, Scott Burgess said the car is a "dog" that lacks "inspiration or soul."
But the online version at detnews.com is missing some criticism, including the "dog" reference.
Burgess told The Associated Press on Thursday that he quit this week after meeting with news editor and publisher Jon Wolman. He believes his review was edited after complaints from an advertiser.
A message seeking comment was left for Wolman. Wolman told automotive website Jalopnik.com that the paper should have let the online review stand as written.
