New York Toyota Dealers Pull Ads from ABC Stations

In February, the Blotter reported that Toyota dealers in five Southern states pulled their commercials off ABC TV local affiliates in the region, complaining about ABC News' coverage of Toyota. The ad agency representing the 173 dealers told ABC affiliates that the shift was due to "excessive stories on the Toyota issues." According to an ABC station manager, the southeast boycott has since been lifted.

According to Lauzon, the restrictions in ad buys in New York state will continue until dealers see what they consider more balanced coverage of Toyota issues by ABC News.
