As I skim the headlines on Google news I see things that I've seen a million times before over the years. I've been doing this since 2005 and in that time I've seen news stories on the Prius change and evolve. This story was exceptionally common in the early days, around 2005. And it's especially inane because it's really just creating a straw man. This one is especially bad as it's poorly sourced, if you can even call it that. It's basically just a diatribe disguised as some kind of new item. And yes, it's from glenn beck's execrable site, daily caller and no, I will not to it. I provide here merely as an informative illustration.
Well, at least for me, in the last eleven years.
