Takeouts: Obama in New Hampshire, Costs of Toyota Recall, Conservative Super Bowl Ads

Tuesday, February 02, 2010

  • CONGRESS TAKEOUT: Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich reports on President Obama's trip to New Hampshire — and on the continued reaction back on Capitol Hill to the president's budget.
  • AUTO TAKEOUT: We know that Toyota Motor Corporation’s recall of 6.5 million cars across eight of their product lines will cost the company at least $1 billion up front.  Advertising consultant Cindy Gallop tells us that it will end up costing the company much more to repair its damaged brand.
  • FINANCE TAKEOUT: New York Times business and finance reporter Louise Story says the lifting of a ban on Super Bowl commercials with an activist message has paved the way for a commercial from the conservative group, Focus on the Family.

Guests:

Cindy Gallop, Louise Story and Todd Zwillich
