Toyota slaughtered at the altar of ratings

It took a while, but it now seems the general public is getting the message about the Toyota "unintended acceleration" nonsense. Ed Wallace at Bloomberg Businessweek has a good summary of things, via Overlawyered:

    Sometimes it's no fun being right. Last February I wrote that the concern about uncontrollable acceleration in Toyota cars was just so much humbug. As the findings on the government investigation into these allegations proved, I was proven correct. What I would prefer, however, is that the media would take the time to report a story accurately rather than just stir up a public frenzy in pursuit of ratings.
