Reporters weigh in on Mary Barra's Senate hearing interview
It was day two on Capitol Hill for General Motors CEO Mary Barra.
Today, it was the Senate's turn to grill Barra about GM's failure to act on ignition-switch failures. The failures have been linked to 13 deaths and prompted a recall of 2.6 million cars.
Here's what Barra said on Capitol Hill:
"When we have answers, we will be fully transparent with you, with our regulators, and with our customers. While I can't turn back the clock, we acted without hesitation. We told the world we had a problem that needed to be fixed. We did so because whatever mistakes were made in the past, we will not shirk our responsibility. Today's GM will do the right thing."
Cynthia Canty spoke with David Shepardson and Michelle Krebs. Shepardson is the Detroit News Capitol reporter, and Krebs is a veteran auto analyst.
