Update: The car salesman story WCCO held

Last week, I wrote about a story WCCO pulled because — as they told viewers in an unusually frank admission — “we need to do more work on that report.” The piece ended up running Wednesday, two days late, and still packed a punch.

Last week, I wrote about a story WCCO pulled because — as they told viewers in an unusually frank admission — “we need to do more work on that report.” The piece ended up running Wednesday, two days late, and still packed a punch.

No one comes off very well in the story of a woman ripped off by a Bloomington Lincoln Mercury salesman who leveraged his dealership for an alleged swindle. Moral of the story: if a salesman tries to sell you his car when you’re walking out the dealer’s door, best to pass on the offer. And dealers: do pay attention to your employees’ criminal histories.
