UNCONTROLLABLE 2500 POUND POWERDEAD, METALLIC BLUE CANNON BALL,

SATELLITE RADIO OPTIONAL.ALRIGHT,

THEY LEARNED THE PROBLEM ANDIMMEDIATELY MOVED FOR A RECALL.

SYSTEM WORKED.

>> GM FIRST NOTICED THE PROBLEMIN 2001.

>> Jon: RIGHT 2001.

THEY NOTICED THE PROBLEM IN 2001BUT YOU HAVE TO APPROACH THESE

THINGS WITH CAUTION.

YOU HAVE TO FIGURE OUT EXACTLYWHAT THE PROBLEM IS.

>> IT'S WHAT IS CALLED A DETENTPLUNGER.

THIS TINY PART IN THE RECALLEDVEHICLES WAS TOO SHORT AND COULD

SLIP MAKING IT POSSIBLE FORTHE IGNITION TO SHIFT WHILE

DRIVING.

>> Jon: SAVE THE PLUNGER, SAVETHE WORLD.

[LAUGHTER]>> IN MARCH 2005 A GM

REPORT SAID FIXES WOULD TAKE TOOLONG AND COST TOO MUCH.

QUOTE" NONE OF THE SOLUTIONSREPRESENTS AN ACCEPTABLE

BUSINESS CASE."

>> Jon: OH. THEY FOUND OUT IN2001, STUDIED THE PROBLEM FOR

FOUR YEARS, DID ANINTERNAL COST BENEFIT ANALYSIS

USING YOUR STANDARDANALYTIC BAROMETRIC PE RATIO

EQUATIONS AND CAME UPWITH (bleep).

[ LAUGHTER ]COSTS TOO MUCH.

OUT OF CURIOSITY, THOUGH LET MEASK YOU A QUESTION.

HOW MUCH DID IT COST?

>> THE COST OF REPLACEMENT, THEPART WOULD HAVE BEEN 57 CENTS.

>> Jon: WELL, HOLD ON.

WHEN YOU ADD IT UP -- IT'S STILLA TINY AMOUNT OF MONEY ACTUALLY.

FOR GOD SAKES EVEN IF YOU ARESTRAPPED FOR CASH, GM YOU COULD

HAVE FOUND AT LEAST THAT MUCH INTHE SEATS OF CARS YOU ARE

FIXING.

THE THING WOULD HAVE PAID FORITSELF BUT ALL RIGHT.

YOU DECIDED IT COST TOO MUCH ANDIT'S NOT LIKE THE CONSEQUENCES

OF INACTION WOULD -- WHAT ARETHE CONSEQUENCES OF INACTION?

>> GM SAYS IT KNOWS OF 13 DEATHSAND 32 CRASHES CONNECTED TO ITS

FAULTY IGNITION SWITCHES ANDAIRBAGS THAT THEN FAILED TO

DEPLOY, BUT CONSUMER ADVOCATESSAY THERE MAY BE MANY MORE.

>> Jon: MOTHER (bleep).

[ LAUGHTER ]AND INSTEAD OF FIXING THE

PROBLEM, WHAT IS THE SOLUTIONYOU

OFFERED CUSTOMERS?

>> INSTEAD GM SENT OUT A SERVICEBULLETIN TO ITS DEALERSHIPS

WARNING DRIVERS NOT TO USE HEAVYKEYCHAINS.

[ LAUGHTER ]>> Jon: RIGHT, NO, WHY FIX A

PROBLEM YOU CREATED WHEN YOUCOULD JUST ASK YOUR SURVIVING

CUSTOMERS --[LAUGHTER]

-- TO GET RID OF ALL THEIR OTHERKEYS.

HEY, HERE IS YOUR PROBLEM HERE,WITH THE -- HERE IS THE PROBLEM

WITH THE CAR HERE, YOU HAVE AHOUSE.

[LAUGHTER]YOU SELL THAT AND ANY OTHER

LOCKED DEVICES AND YOUR CARSHOULD RUN NO PROBLEM.

[ LAUGHTER ]GM HAS KNOWN FOR OVER A DECADE

ABOUT A DEADLY DESIGN FLAW,WAITED YEARS TO ATTEMPT TO FIX

IT.

BOTCHED THE FIX.THREATENED TO RECOOP LEGAL

COSTS FROM ANYBODYWHO TRIED TO LITIGATE THE ISSUE

AND WHEN THE (bleep) HITTHE FAN DECIDED MAYBE IT'S TIME

TO PROMOTE CARGAL AND SO ON JANURY 15,

2014 MARY BARRA TOOK OVER GMAND WAS SOON THERE AFTER

MEANINGING YESTERDAY OFFEREDAN ALL EXPENSE PAID TRIP TO

WASHINGTON'S ROMANTICHOUSE HEARING ROOM.

>> THIS IGNITION SWITCH ISSUEWAS FIRST -- CAME TO LIGHT IN

2006, IS THAT CORRECT?

>> IT CAME TO LIGHT TO ME ONJANUARY 31, 2014.

>> Jon: HOLY (bleep).

THEY HIRED HER AND THEN TOLD HERDURING HER ORIENTATION.

[LAUGHTER]WELCOME MS. BARRA YOU'REGONNA LOVE

THIS PLACE. THERE'S YOUR DESKOVER THERE, THERE'RE SOME

BUSINESS CARDS, STATIONARYSUPPLIES, OBVIOUSLY IN THE

CLOSET IF YOU ARE GOING TO LEAVEANYTHING IN THE

BREAK ROOM FRIDGE YOU'REGONNA WRITE YOUR NAME ON IT.

THAT'S EVERYTHING I THINK.

OH, WE'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEEASILY AVOIDABLE DEATHS OF AT

LEAST 13 PEOPLE.

AND THE LADIES ROOM IS DOWN THEHALL.

OKAY.

SO HOW DID CEO BARRA HANDLE IT?

>> AS SOON AS I LEARNEDABOUT THE PROBLEM WE ACTED

WITHOUT HESITATION.

WE'LL NOT SHIRK FROM OURRESPONSIBILITIES NOW OR IN THE

FUTURE.

TODAY'S GM WILL DO THE RIGHTTHING.

>> Jon: TODAY'S GM IS NOT ASHIRKER.

[ LAUGHTER ]AND IN FACT, THEY HIRED A LAWYER

THAT SPECIALIZES IN CASES WHEREVICTIMS ARE COMPENSATED SO THEY

PROBABLY HAVE A GREAT PLAN TOMAKE THIS RIGHT.

>> ARE YOU SAYING THAT THEHIRING OF MR. FEINBERG INDICATES

THAT GM WILL GIVE SOME KIND OFSETTLEMENT?

>> IT WILL TAKE PROBABLY 30-60DAYS TO EVALUATE THE SITUATION.

WE'VE NOT MADE ANY DECISIONS.

WE'VE JUST STARTED THIS PROCESSWITH MR. FEINBERG.

>> AND THAT MIGHT INCLUDE PEOPLEWHO HAVE BEEN INJURED AS WELL.

>> WE'VE NOT MADE ANY DECISIONS.

>> Jon: WE DON'T KNOW WHAT HE'SGONNA SAY.

MAYBE OUR LAWYER WILL RECOMMENDWE JUST DANGLE MONEY IN FRONT OF

PEOPLE WITHOUT GIVE THEM ANYOR MAYBE THE FAMILIES OWE US

MONEY. WE JUST HAVETO WAIT AND SEE.

AND THIS IS WHERE OUR UP TO NOWPLEASANT CRUISE OF A STORY

ENCOUNTERS AN UNEXPECTEDCATOSTROPHIC

TECHNICAL PROBLEMAND CAREENS INTO A DITCH.

WHY WOULD GM HAVE THE ABILITY TOIN ANY WAY WAIT AND SEE HOW THEY

FEEL ABOUT SETTLING THESE CASESWITH THESE CLEARLY WRONGED

FAMILIES?

HOW ARE THEY NOT AUTOMATICALLYLIABLE FOR DAMAGES?

>> UNDER THE TERMS OF THEEMERGENCE FROM FEDERAL

BANKRUPTCY PROTECTIONIN 2009 THE NEW

GENERAL MOTORS IS NOT LIABLEFOR CLAIMS FROM ACCIDENTS THAT

HAPPENED BEFORE JULY OF THATYEAR.

>> Jon: TADA. AND ONCE AGAIN WELEARNED THAT NOT ONLY ARE

CORPORATIONS PEOPLE THEYHAVE SOME SORT OF WEIRD MUTANT

POWER THAT ALLOWS THEM TO DODGETHE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR

ACTIONS.

BECAUSE GM DECLARED BANKRUPTCYTHEY ARE NO LONGER LEGALLY

LIABLE FOR HUMAN DEATHS THATTHEY CAUSED THROUGH THEIR

ADMITTED NEGLIGENCE.

I CANNOT WAIT FOR A NONCORPORATEPERSON TO TRY THAT (bleep).

NO, NO, YOUR HONOR, MY NAME ISNOT JEFFREY DAHMER. JEFFREY

DAHMER DECLARED MORALBANKRUPTCY A FEW YEARS BACK.

WHILE I DEEPLY REGRET THE OLDJEFFREY DAHMER'S ACTIONS.

I, JOFF DAMER AM NOT ON THEHOOK IN ANY WAY LEGALLY FOR THE

ADMITTED EATING OFSOME OF MY NEIGHBORS, I MEAN,

HIS NEIGHBORS. SO I'M JUST GOINGTO HEAD OUT, GET IN MY

CAR AND DRIVE AWAY. IT'S A FORDI'M NOT A MANIAC.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

THOUGHT THAT SCIENCETAKES ITS CUES FROM ALL OF

THE GREAT, ASIMOV AND WELLS,ALL THE GREAT SORT OF FICTION

WRITERS AND SCIENCE FICTIONWRITERS AND THEY SEE SOMETHING

LIKE THAT IN A COMIC STRIP ANDGO I BET I CAN MAKE THAT.

THEY ARE TAKING THEIR CUES FROMTHE IMAGINATIONS OF A GUY LIKE

STAN LEE.

>> THERE'S THAT AND THERE'S ALSOTHE FACT THAT -- I USED TO DREAM

I COULD FLY.

I USED TO DREAM I COULD BREATHEUNDER WATER AND ALL THAT KIND OF

STUFF.

I WANTED TO DO IT REALLYBADLY.

NOW I PUT ON THAT COSTUME AND IFALL INTO THAT MARVEL PLAYGROUND

AND I'M LIKE I'M IN HEAVEN.

THIS IS HAPPENING.I PUT MY EYE PATCH ON

AND I WALK OUT THERE ANDI'M INVINCIBLE, MAN.

>> Jon: THEY CREATEIT REALISTICALLY.

IN THE OLD DAYS A SUPERHERO LIKE

HULK THEY WOULD JUST FIND THEBIGGEST GUY THEY COULD

AND PAINT HIM GREEN AND THATWOULD BE --

>> YEAH.

>> Jon: BUT THE EFFECTS NOWAND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT

SURROUNDS IT.

IS IT -- WHEN YOU ARE DOING IT,WHEN YOU ARE MAKING IT IS IT

TEDIOUS? IS IT --DO YOU FEEL THE

EXCITEMENT OR YOU IN SPANDEX INFRONT OF A

GREEN FLAT AND THEY ARE LIKE NOWTHE MONSTER IS COMING?
