Peter Goodman takes issue with Toyota's public relations but offers no alternative. According to Goodman, it would be a pr mistake for Toyota to blame driver error for the panic over "sudden acceleration." But more and more evidence exonerates Toyota and demonstrates that the allegations of an electronic defect were lies driven by self-interested trial lawyers trying to manufacture hysteria. How precisely should Toyota defend itself when faced with a financially-motivated attack on its reputation abetted by an unskeptical media if the truth is insufficient?
