BMW fire story smacks of money grab

Screen Shot 2017-05-12 at 4.00.25 AMStand and deliver, BMW! Behold the latest attack by the posse TeslaMondo has repeatedly warned about:

  • Plaintiff attorney looking for airtime
  • Journalist with airtime to lend
  • “Safety expert” on plaintiff payroll but never identified that way

This skunk team is responsible for a long string of automotive spook stories going back decades, some well-known, some not, all of them concocted to squeeze settlements from Big Auto. Here are some you might not remember. More recently, the Toyota acceleration farce, the Tesla autopilot farce, and now the BMW fire farce.

Does the auto industry sometimes screw the public whilst chasing $$$? Of course: GM ignition scandal, VW diesel weasel scandal, Takata airbag scandal. Sometimes it’s a borderline case of malfeasance with no clear culprit, as in the Ford/Firestone fiasco. But we should never allow ourselves to be informed by the likes of Brian Ross from ABC News, plaintiff attorneys like Joseph Santoli (where this BMW story likely originated despite his low placement in the story) or bespoke “safety experts” like Sean Kane, dissected in detail here.
