CNN Wrongly Criticizes Toyota!

CNN perhaps doesn't know the standards at which Toyota engineers its cars. Or say, the author does not know the way engineering functions.

In its recent article, it CNN says, that the vehicle can unintentionally accelerate even when the driver is not pressing any accelerator. The real story is that the Japanese automajor was simulating the effect of its system failure and how the car can take control of the situation in milliseconds.

Perhaps, CNN should stop reporting wrong news.

Here is its article https://edition.cnn.com/2012/03/01/us/toyota-memo-acceleration-concerns/index.html?hpt=hp_c2

It appears to be an error on CNN's part while translating the official Japanese version paper released by Toyota to English.

If anyone understands how the failure testing is done for automobiles, he/ she would have double checked before airing their views. If the rumors are true, then some money minded lawyers had goofed up the story to make a false case on Toyota under the pretext of customer safety.

I read David Fitzpatrick and Drew Griffin of CNN on a regular basis. I only wish that they do not commit blunders while reporting for CNN. I think only the usual legal stuff would happen and CNN will have to say sorry for insulting Toyota cars publicly.

If it was an accident, they can issue a sorry note to Toyota publicly which needs no legal action right. Will they still take a legal action even after issuing a public sorry note?
