Ford reps reached out to....The Huffington Post?
I find that statement odd since they aren't an entertainment publication(well not intentionally anyway).
Actually, these days The Huffington Post covers pretty much everything. It's an increasingly high profile online publication. Prior to this rumor, I'd never heard of the website (Showbiz Spy) that started circulating this story, so I'd say HuffPo is a logical enough choice. They did, after all, run the rumor as well.
