As I wrote here, in the early 1990s, NBC was caught lying about trucks produced by General Motors. I wrote:
NBC tried to stage an accident in which a collision would cause an explosion. It didn't work. So NBC rigged a tiny explosive in the truck and got its explosion. General Motors did some good detective work to uncover the scandal and bring it to the public's attention. Only then did NBC's Jane Pauley go on the air to apologize.
Well, it's now ABC's turn. Reporter Brian Ross was caught lying about Toyota. Here's the story. This one is less extreme than the one in the early 1990s. But it's a lie.
