[Oeva-list] CBS gets a BS flag

This past Saturday CBS evening news aired a feature segment on how EVs just
weren't going to make it..  They cited the recent recall, high price and
weak market for the newly released Fisker Karma (no mention of the Leaf),
it's expensive, and implied unwise, federal subsidies, and oh yes, it's
batteries catch fire too.  And then, it doesn't end there either.   A123 got
a gob of cash from the feds.  Of course these clueless stalking horses for
the petroleum industry introduced the segment by calling the Karma another
failed "hybrid".  Now isn't there some industry advocacy organization,
perhaps Plug-In America, who can expose and call the likes of CBS, with a
loud clear voice, on such blatant propaganda?  This CBS piece was
particularly egregious.
