Holy crap, this is unbelievable.
In addition to Coker's fake articles, it looks like Discovery put up an entire fake bulletin board: OverhaulinForums.com
. The board went up about 10 days ago, a little bit after my first call to Discovery.
It's designed to look like a "fan" started it. The motto is: "Join Our Community and Discuss the Greatest Car Show on TV". Check out the discussions started by the member "Overhaulinfan". Here's my favorite: Why I Love Overhaulin'
. Here's a quote:
I love Chip Foose's work, I love the effort of all the team, I love the pranks, and I love the outcome virtually everytime. Thank you TLC for making one of the greatest shows on television.
Here's the user list: user list
. It looks like Chip Foose is already signed up.
What a surprise, the domain name Overhaulinforums.com is registered in the name of "overhaulinforums.com Private Registrant". I'm calling Kristin Brown again, right now. This is beyond ridiculous.
