CNET may be owned by CBS, but they totally gutted staff quite a while ago. The "article" was written by a "blogger" who "brings an irreverent, sarcastic, and sometimes ironic voice to the tech world" and "is not an employee of CNET."

Not sure where you reached the conclusion (from the article) that Nissan dropped LA based on FDA and/or whistleblower legal issues.

The thing that we are seeing is that many info sources (credible/established, bloggers, whoever) are becoming more aware of LA's current issues and that will be appearing in many articles/blogs/WWN/etc.

My issue is that the CNET article reference has no basis in fact - the author is tossing out a joke based on the LA debacle popping up in the current public consciousness.

"Nissan certainly appears to have taken that step" - as far as I interpret that statement, it appears to be unsubstantiated by anything at this point. "Appears" is definitely an opinion; I myself would base an opinion on that issue on more than a blogger puff piece.

Well, at least you have shed the "dispassioned observer" facade and come out of the closet.

I mean, yea, under Iqbal the conclusion wouldn't sustain a pleading, but under a simpler standard, that of the first grader, 2+2= Nissan is running from him because he is a junkie freak and they don't want their product associated with such a person.

It looks like Michelob Ultra is around for another year.


LANCE LOOK: Lance Armstrong was in town yesterday to tour the Anheuser-Busch InBev facilities and talk about how things went during his first year as a spokesman for Michelob Ultra.

Keith Levy, VP of marketing for the brewery, said they talked with Armstrong about what the label and the cyclist could expect from another year of partnership.
