Lawyers suing Toyota claim a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) from 2002 proves the company knew there was an electronic cause for the current unintended acceleration issue. It doesn't. But that's not stopping CNN from claiming it does.
We thought the mainstream media had learned a lesson about checking out technical details before they run a story after Brian Ross of ABC News saw his staged death ride debunked. Guess again. Now trial lawyers attempting to push a class action lawsuit have dropped a TSB from 2002 into the hands of CNN and other outlets that they claim "proves" Toyota knew about the recent spate of unintended acceleration problems ahead of current recalls. False.
