Private automaker denies pressure to pull ad
The Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) sent a letter to Ford Motor Company Thursday expressing interest in reports that the company had been pressured by the White House to pull an ad critical of the auto bailout.
Ford denied the report, but Issa asked the company to respond to six questions in order "to assist the Committee in its oversight efforts."
Issa also asked whether the company temporarily pulled the ad from its YouTube page. The company responded on their official Twitter feed: "The ad remains online."
Rep. Issa responded by saying "Nice tweeting, but you didn't answer my questions."
