"Akerson said speculation that GM managers purposely hid information from Barra — or that he left her with the mess — was ridiculous. Internet chatter implying that GM could soften criticism of its mishandling of the recall by promoting the first woman to lead an automaker, Akerson said, only shows that “fools can say anything.”"

From The Detroit News: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20140728/A...

Goes to show that criminals can deny anything. If these "managers" did not purposely hide information from Barra and even Akerson, then they were incompetent at the task. YOU know exactly what YOU did Akerson, you threw Momma under the bus so as to insulate YOURSELF and the Board of Directors from the coming firestorm. A little late night "e-mail delete party" get rid of a ten year path showing who and how much was "actually" known about the defects.
