Default Does Washington Owe Toyota an Apology?

The more I think about this whole Toyota thing http://www.nhtsa.gov/PR/DOT-16-11, the more pissed off I get - and I don't even own a Toyota. After a year of trashing the company's cars, the government is just saying, "oops, my bad" and shrugging their shoulders http://thehill.com/homenews/house/14...-a-year-later-. This could have happened to any car company. I know they're big corporations, but WTF?

I know I can't be the only person who feels this way http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/your-w...toyota-apology, amirite?

pedal entrapment was the only logical cause they can find about the whole thing and it still would be a design flaw. the accelerator pedal is too close to the floor to cause the entrapment easily.

The media got ahold of the story and inflated it like a blow-up doll they can have %$# with. I think Toyota should be given compensation by the american media(hello Murdoch) and not the government. It was a privately made smear campaign anyways, and I'm sure the boys at GM and all the other car companies were loving it up while it was happening.
