I guess I'm kind of scared off by this relevant story I heard by Mike Birbiglia about getting into a drunk driving accident.

Did you call them back? I think it is highly unlikely that any television station would subject their sponsors to this line of bullshit. Newsflash: Private buyer and seller of a used car have a dispute...

You might think that, but you would be wrong. In San Francisco, for instance, local news station KGO7 has a consumer advocacy section called "7 on your side." It can be found here: http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/channel?s...ide&id=7109212

To quote from their site: "The 7 On Your Side team is the Bay Area's leading watchdog group fighting for consumer rights. The consumer unit is led by Michael Finney."

This is the EXACT type of thing they go after.

So, depending on where the OP lives, this could very well be true, sad though it might seem. That said, if she has gone to such a group, first, then it shows the weakness of her case. Most people go to them when all else has failed, when no one else can or will help, as a last resort. That this might have been her first move tells me she does not like her chances in court so is intead trying to humilate the guy into caving in with the help of local TV instead.

Like I said before, it is definitely "time to go to the mattresses!" This has gotten to the point of being absurd now.

I've never, ever seen an "on your side" special done about a dispute private individuals. I think you might be exaggerating the local media's potential a bit much.

"whodini I've never, ever seen an "on your side" special done about a dispute private individuals. I think you might be exaggerating the local media's potential a bit much."

I am not sure how I am exaggerating anything by pointing out that KGO7 has a consumer advocacy section? Having grown up and lived in the Bay Area most of my life, I can tell you that KGO7 helps people all the time in private citizen against private citizen cases. You might be right that that assistance does not make it to a news story, but the fear of it becoming one, which is what happens when they call you, allows them to get things done.

It is no different than some radio shows that are based on the same thing. You call in, tell them you story, and if they are persuaded by it they tell you to stay on hold so they can get your information and provide assistance. I am shocked that you would be familiar with '7 on your side' and yet not understand that they don't just report consumer advocacy stories, they help people with consumer advocacy issues that never make it to the air. Theirs is a consumer advocacy division. That is just a fact.

I am not saying that in this instance that is what has happened, just that it is actually possible. A female calls them, cries about being taken advantage of by an unscrupulous male car seller, and they tell her they will make some phone calls for her.

I am aware of the "On Your Side" segments. Unless the OP is withholding material facts the news team has no real basis to pursue this.

Yeah, they have advocacy deals through media outlets in LA (like 7 on your side), too, and in other cities, but BFD. My point was that you were exaggerating the abilities of their program, or that program's willingness to help this psychobitch under these circumstances. I'm glad your familiar with KGO's program and their record with helping private citizens against private citizens "all the time." By the way, what's on their FAQ page?
