Re: 60 Minutes II about to slander us

Link

60 Minutes never has anything good to say about the subject of their stories (remember Audi back in the 80's ). I'm sure there's gonna be some stunna tie-in.

Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

Re: 60 Minutes II about to slander us

I'd say that this will be a re-hash of the Air-Fence debacle.....

Re: 60 Minutes II about to slander us

I didn't look at the link, but I thought it was going to me about motorcross racing?

Quote June 2 – The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has learned that the CBS News program '60 Minutes II' is expected to air a report about 'extreme motorcycle competition' on Wednesday, June 4 at 9:00 p.m. ET.

Whatever that means

Re: 60 Minutes II about to slander us

I think Conq may be right... probably doing a thing on freestyle motocross and injuries, etc.

Can't say that I'll tune into that one, though.

Re: 60 Minutes II about to slander us

AMA said that they declined an interview with 60 minutes. What for? When I watch 60 min. and they say that who ever is the portrayed 'bad guy' in their stories declines an interview everyong gets the feeling that it must be true. If they say that the AMA declined an interview, people will automatically assume that they have no interest in rider safety.

Re: 60 Minutes II about to slander us

They won't talk about everyday things, they'll focus on how some dude landed his sack on the bars and subsequently tore them open... Or how some dudes melon split on the bars upon impact... Won't be anything positive, you don't actually think that it would be do you!?

Bike people (sport bikers especially) are starting to understand how gun owners have been treated for many years. Any gun 'special' on network TV always talks about the negative...

Re: 60 Minutes II about to slander us

I know it mentions supercross, but they are calling what the squids are doing extreme motorcycling these days, you might find some 'starboyz' types in there as well

Do unto others, before some prick does it to you!

Re: 60 Minutes II about to slander us

I would decline the interview also. If 60 Minutes is on it, it has to be controversial. They will ambush them with questions they are not prepared to answer.
