CNN talks Opel
On Friday, May 29, I took a train to Berlin for an interview with CNN International reporter Diana Magnay. We spoke outside The RTL/CNN facilities and discussed the future of GM's European brand, European politics, and labor issues. With the promise of German government intervention, along with that of the parts company Magna, and the lack of enthusiasm on the part of the British government to financially support Vauxhall operations, this story is far from over, and a point of contention among Europeans with a stake in the outcome.
