From the article
"In the face of overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary, CNN has irresponsibly aired a grossly inaccurate segment on Anderson Cooper 360 that attempts to resurrect the discredited, scientifically unproven allegation that there is a hidden defect in Toyota’s electronic throttle control system that can cause unintended acceleration.
Exhaustive investigations undertaken by some of the most respected engineers and scientific institutions in America – including NASA, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the National Academy of Sciences – have thoroughly debunked this worn-out fabrication. Yet a group of trial lawyers suing Toyota for money and their paid advocates are continuing their efforts to manufacture controversy where none exists and have used CNN to support their narrow, self-serving agenda.
CNN's story was premised on an egregiously inaccurate translation of a Toyota
Contrary to CNN’s allegation, no “sudden unintended acceleration” occurred nor is it referenced in the Japanese language document.
In its broadcast, CNN also highlights unverified customer complaints to the NHTSA and includes reference to at least one expert paid for by lawyers suing Toyota.
It is ironic and disheartening that a document that actually reinforces Toyota’s robust vehicle design and pre-production prototype testing to validate the safety of its vehicles in development was the centerpiece of this segment."
Good for CNN!
What do you want me to say? That like you I am in favor of piss poor inaccurate reporting? Sorry, not gonna say it. CNN did not do a good job.
Wow, I'm sorry but I don't take the "official" toyota press release as fucking gospel!
Interesting that you didn't respond at all to my detailed comments about translations!
Furthermore, why do you keep bring up what NBC did to GM 20 years ago? CNN didn't stage anything!
"CNN's story was premised on an egregiously inaccurate translation of a Toyota document"
About What NBC did,
"Piss poor reporting in search of ratings is no good, and even irresponsible. Doesn't matter who the target of the false story is."
CNN failed. And to that you said "Good for CNN!"
"Wow, I'm sorry but I don't take the "official" toyota press release as fucking gospel!"
But you do take awful reporting as a good job?
