Watch Jon Stewart and the Daily Show skewer GM over ignition recalls
As he so often does, Stewart points out the absurdity of the recall story, but not before starting with CEO Mary Barra's introduction by Dan Akerson. He then goes on to point out GM's failure to address the situation, which has been known about since 2001. It's all kind of downhill from there. And yes, this is all done while showing a Russian market Cobalt, which you can see in the image above.
Stewart isn't done there, though. He also points out the curious timing of Mary Barra's promotion to CEO, implying, in no uncertain terms, that she may be the fall "gal." Finally, GM's protection from liability is addressed in a scathing take down that sees Stewart reference serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
Fair warning, there is some bleeped cursing here in both clips. Scroll down to see what Stewart has to say.
