Obama’s Government Motors (GM) Propaganda Media Machine

Roanoke Times, 2-2-10, Most of Pg 1: Toyota works to repair autos & image.
Roanoke Times, 2-4-10, All Pg 14: Prius brakes questioned and fixing faulty pedals.
Roanoke Times, 2-5-10, Most of Pg 10: Toyota ponders recall of Prius brakes.
-
The Obama-press is trying desperately to propagate FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) about the Toyota gas pedal and Prius braking issues in a totally obvious attempt to support and prop-up Obama’s Government Motors and his government UAW union.
-
During my trip to Roanoke yesterday (home to Obama’s Roanoke Times Paper) I saw hundreds of folks driving their Toyota’s calmly and with confidence and poise apparently ignoring that papers multiple full page coverage of FUD about this issue.
Isn’t it interesting that they have not published any data on the numbers of incidents, numbers of complaints, numbers of injuries and deaths associated with these issues? And also no comparison data to other make and model issues. Just lots of FUD of all subjective words and no objective data; be afraid, be very afraid!
Based on the crime rate in Roanoke I was much more worried about getting mugged than having Toyota car trouble.
-
Also, not a word can be found about the current Ford Fusion and Milan hybrid braking problems:
http://www.newsday.com/classifieds/cars/car-nation-1.811928/ford-has-own-brake-problems-as-toyota-prius-deals-with-feds-1.1742926
Apparently if you have brake problems in a Ford-hybrid the risk is much less than if you are in a Toyota-Prius.
-
Obama’s Chicago political-hack, Transportation Sec. Ray LaHood, told Congress that Toyota owners shouldn’t drive their cars. He then said he didn’t mean what he said. Just more Obama Chicago-talk and hope and change we can believe in!
-
What a contrast all this is with the Ford Explorer Firestone blow-out and roll-over mess that went on from 1975 through 2000 with the highway agency reporting 174 deaths and more than 700 injuries.
http://www.sptimes.com/News/webspecials/firestone/timeline.shtml
The folks from MoTown and Chicago weren’t telling folks to stop driving and to stop buying Ford or Firestone and the media wasn’t nearly as worried about my well-being then as they pretend to be now!
-
Click the following link for a summary of my GM Oldsmobile gas pedal issue. GM’s response was to send a secret maintenance bulletin to their dealers saying if any customer complains, change the gas pedal module, charge them $150 and tell them it’s just an ordinary maintenance item; not to worry.
Display of a caricature of Alfred E. Neuman’s: “What, me worry?” would have been a nice touch.
What a contrast in comparison to the positive experiences I have had with Toyota service!
