Default Japanese media criticize Toyota chief's response to recall

Tokyo -- Japanese media sharply criticized Toyota's president Saturday
for what they called a delayed and unconvincing explanation for the
massive car recall that has sullied the world's biggest automaker, a
Japanese corporate icon.

Akio Toyoda, the founder's grandson appointed to lead Toyota Motor
Corp. last June, emerged late Friday to apologize and address
criticism that the company mishandled a crisis over sticking gas
pedals. But he stopped short of ordering a recall of Toyota's iconic
Prius hybrid over separate braking problems.

Toyoda's appearance before reporters at a company office in the
central Japanese city of Nagoya made front pages of the country's
leading newspapers -- but won no praise.

Noting his scred came from Detroit, it isn't surprising that there's a
slant.
