In 1921, after a period of declining sales, GM set out to bring down its major competition: electric streetcars. By using the business its automotive transportation brought to freight carriers as leverage, GM pressured railways like Southern Pacific and New York Central to abandon their electric lines. Electric lines were replaced by the omnibus, the inferiority of which drove people who had previously frequented electric lines to buy cars. GM was more than happy to fulfill their newly-found need. Charles E. Wilson became GM's president in 1941 and presided over the company's expansion during World War II, after which "it had more employees than the populations of Delaware and Nevada combined" and "was one of the largest suppliers to the Defense Department." When President Eisenhower tapped Wilson as a nominee for Secretary of Defense in 1952, concerns were raised about possible conflicts of interest, leading to an exchange and a famous (mis)quote. According to the Detroit Free Pres...
As detailed by a 2014 report by the National Employment Law Project (NELP), manufacturing jobs in the US are now in the bottom half of all jobs in terms of pay, despite significant public subsidies and bailouts and widespread assumptions among politicians and the public that manufacturing is the backbone of the middle class. While the sector has rebounded somewhat since the 2008 financial crisis, the replacement jobs have on average lower pay, especially in the auto industry. According to the report, 1. While in the past, manufacturing workers earned a wage significantly higher than the U.S. average, by 2013 the average factory worker made 7.7 percent below the median wage for all occupations. 2. Real wages for auto parts workers, who now account for three of every four autoworker jobs, fell by nearly 14 percent from 2003 to 2013—three times faster than for manufacturing as a whole, and nine times faster than the decline for all occupations. 3. In 5 of the 10 “Auto Alley” states—Mic...
Fake TV news
In the Center for Media and Democracy's April 2006 expose of video news releases (VNRs), titled "Fake TV News: Widespread and Undisclosed," three of the 36 VNRs tracked were funded by and scripted for General Motors. All three were produced by the broadcast PR firm Medialink Worldwide. One VNR, from January 2006, celebrated GM's corporate headquarters, the Renaissance Center, as key to the revitalization of downtown Detroit. Another VNR, from March 2006, falsely claimed that GM had launched t...
Buying off journalism students
"Maybe I’m just a bit jaded, but I have a problem with this solicitation," wrote University of North Carolina business journalism professor Chris Roush. On a UNC journalism blog, he posted an email that he received on August 30, 2006, "from a public relations person at General Motors ... asking me to send student journalists to an event that the company will be holding in Las Vegas next month." He added, "It seems what young student journalists would be 'learning' from this experience is how...
GM CEO Rick Wagoner told attendees of the 2007 Newspaper Association of America conference, "One area where we're beginning to do more, and will want to work with newspapers to explore new options in, is advertorials." Advertorialsare ads written as though they are independent op/ed columns. Wagoner said that GM was putting less money towards traditional print ads in part because the company no longer offers a "deal of the month." GM is also interested in overseas promotion. "Some of you own...
"GMnext" and greenwashing
In January 2008, General Motors launched a new website, "GMnext" (which includes a wiki), to mark its 100th anniversary and showcase "ideas on future automotive technologies," reported the Financial Times. Instead, environmental activists posted critiques of the company. GM called the posts on climate change and other issues "diatribes loaded with propaganda," and shut down the interactive part of the site. "We weren't going to lose control of our own site," explained the automaker. Instead,...
Global warming "a crock"
In January 2008, GM executive Bob Lutz (who's appeared in the company's video news releases ) told reporters in a closed-door meeting that global warming is "a total crock of shit." "Within hours the remark was reported on the internet, and spread, as Lutz subsequently lamented, 'like ragweed,'" reported Green Left. Lutz "had earlier derided efforts to force car companies to build smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles. Such attempts, he wrote on GM's blog, were 'like trying to address the obe...
General Motors gave $626,330 to federal candidates in the 05/06 election cycle through its political action committee (PAC) - 26% went to Democrats and 74% went to Republicans. GM was among various companies that gave record amounts in political contributions four years after passage of a law that tried to reduce the impact of corporate money in U.S. politics. Bloombergsaid, "The companies are working around the law, which banned unlimited contributions to parties, by giving more money through their political action committees than ever before in the first year of an election cycle, and writing checks to loosely regulated independent groups, financial disclosures show."
GM spent $8,805,000 on lobbying in 2006. $3,965,000 of this total went to over 20 outside lobbying firms. The following is a list of lobbyist and PR groupswhich currently list General Motors among their clients. 1. BKSH & Associates, member of Burson-Marsteller 2. Clark Consulting Federal Policy 3.

In February 2009, the Detroit News reported that GM had hired Democratic Party political consultant Michael Whouley, who also does corporate PR at the Dewey Square GroupPR firm. "Whouley's addition comes as even some of the companies' allies in Washington have raised questions about GM's political and public relations strategy. ... Last week, when GM CEO Rick Wagoner met with members of Congress, he did not mention that the company would ask for up to $16.6 billion in new federal aid, according to several sources familiar with the discussions. The size of the request surprised even some of the company's staunchest defenders. ... Whouley is widely considered to be one of the Democratic Party's best organizers of grass-roots campaigns, focusing on building field organizations and get-out-the-vote operations for election campaigns. His hiring is likely a signal that GM wants to increase efforts outside Washington to build political support." "GM's environmental push, which is handled b...

An Important Caveat: Active Learning Doesn't Just Happen. Active learning, student-centered pedagogical approaches put the focus on the learner and what the learner does. However, active learning doesn't just happen; it occurs in the classroom when the teacher creates a learning environment that makes it more likely to occur (see Refs.
