GM continues to exemplify bad PR
NEW YORK (Reuters) - General Motors Corp (GM.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), whose chief executive was blasted last week by U.S. lawmakers for flying on a private jet to ask for public funds, has asked the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration to prevent public tracking of a jet it leases.
"We availed ourselves of the same option as others have," to have the plane removed from the FAA's tracking service, a GM spokesman, Greg Martin, said Thursday.
He declined to comment on why GM made the request or when the company expects the FAA to decide whether to grant it.
Completely typical of our CEOs, isn't it? The lesson learned from being held accountable for anything is always to bury the evidence.
As I've said, all the foo-fra from Leader Nance and the rest of 'em for a plan for GM's measly $25 billion LATER LATER LATER, when the banks get trillions NOW NOW NOW with no plan at all is ludicrous, and shows the pecking order in the Village more than anything else: Big Money right at the top.
But Jeebus -- GM really should clever up before it's too late.
