Is Toyota Being Railroaded?

It may just be coincidence, but the same year the US government bails out US automakers General Motors and Chrysler, Toyota is under the magnifying glass. With recall after recall in the news, Toyota's reputation went from excellent to poor in a matter of weeks.

The financial incentives given to General Motors and Chrysler had little impact on the overall big picture with the US economy, so maybe leveling the playing field may became an option. It just seems that the Toyota recalls were overly publicized and timed so that the ills of Toyota remained in the mind of consumers for weeks.

Since the US government is in the car business, I detect a conspiracy to legitimize the automaker bailout and create artificial fiscal results...
