Volkswagen Cheats the World

posted in: public affairs | 0

Every time I think I’m beyond surprise at what complete jerks large corporations can be, something comes along like the latest from Volkswagen. In case you’ve been on a camping trip and haven’t heard the news, the CEO of Volkswagen has admitted that VW has for years been installing software on their diesel-powered cars designed specifically to cheat emissions testing. Customers who bought cars thinking they were buying the latest in safety for the environment and fuel efficiency were getting neither.

This short video from the Washington Post sums the whole thing up in stunning detail.

What I’m wondering is why the CEO of VW is still employed and, for that matter, hasn’t been arrested.

More here.

Update: The CEO of VW has resigned. Who knew I wielded such power?

    Maybe lyin', cheatin', and screwin' up the environment ain't legal crimes there? Or maybe the gov's waiting for more evidence, yet? (I have not looked at the video yet; in a hurry.)

Post your comment before you lose your train of thought. (Mine already left the station.)
