MSNBC is the ONLY channel I get covering it, yet they keep going back and forth between the testimony and their other stuff...Right now they are talking about the Health Care bill that STILL isn't going to pass

Tell me about it. CNBC had a good portion yesterday but now it's Bernanke and co again.. Fox has streaming coverage online, though.

man, after watching this for just a few minutes... it looks to me like Toyota has totally gotten to LaHood. he has changed his tune quite drastically. not to mention he's kinda being a dick

some of these congressmen are soooo clueless. i'm sure it doesn't help that half of them are coming and going out of the hearing and then asking questions about things that were discussed while they were out.

LaHood has already said that Toyota's black boxes use different software than the big 3 and the NHTSA has not been given clearance to check into Toyota's software... and some of these idiots are talking about how they don't think that the big 3 are being held to the same standards as Toyota... making it sound like we are unfairly persecuting Toyota for these problems.

UGH!!!!

I agree Sunset! I am also VERY upset that Toyoda isn't speaking yet... I thought HE was suppose to start speaking at 10... At this rate I am going to be back in class by the time he actually speaks...

These **** congress people keep repeating questions, wasting the time of everyone who actually cares! Apparently they don't!
