Secy. Ray LaHood Didn’t Watch CBS Report, But Wishes He Had

Lahood_2.24.jpgABC News may have lead the way on Toyota coverage, but CBS News got a shout out during today’s testimony on Capitol Hill.

During Transportation Secretary Ray Lahood‘s testimony, Rep. Dennis Kucinich asked about documents obtained by CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson used in an Evening News report earlier this week.

Kucinich: CBS had an exclusive where they were able to gain some internal documents that showed that Toyota redesigned software in 2005 in response to complaints that cars were accelerating unexpectedly. Are you familiar with those documents?

LaHood: No sir. I am not.

Kucinich: Are you interested in that kind of a report?

LaHood: Yes sir.
