Tip of the hat to ABCNews.com for investigative reporter Brian Ross’ piece Wednesday revealing how the CEOs of Ford and General Motors traveled to their meeting with Congress to ask for $25 billion in aid: via private jet. The GM-chartered flight cost about $20,000, ABC News reported.
In the first few hours after the report was posted online, that section of the site had generated about 500,000 hits, ABCNews said.
ABC News followed up the report with another one this morning detailing the reach of private jet fleets.
