Unhappy Good Morning America - Boat Racing

Barbara Walters was discussing Mr. Jason Preistly's racing accident this morning on "Good Morning America". She stated that the boating accident he had "was not his fault because the other boat ran into him".

Hmmm, I would love to get some driving lessons from David Woods; It has got to take some excellent driving skills to run into the bow of another boat with your canopy when both are doing in excess of 125mph.

Oh, maybe I am wrong, which boat did not turn?

Your exactrly right Kent. Its a shame that these type of shows will only tell you what they want you to hear, right or wrong.

Or perhaps, it's the subject individual spreading misinformation. After all, how would it seem if he were responsible for it.

hmmmm......let's see Jason drives reckless, destroying two boats and almost kills everyone and then he drives reckless and demolishes an open wheel car almost killing himself. It would seem as if he should not be driving anything faster than a golf cart. What a joke he is!

Baja -- That's the problem, most of these shows do not even bother to investigate topics that they know will be discussed.

Did they show the freeze frame footage of the accident? I guess Jason never saw it from the chopper's view.

I guess he would be correct if the turn was a mile further down the beach. LOOSER.

Default Link to good Morning America

here is the link to their feedback form. Someone who knows the true story and can tell them where to access the coverage should write to them and ask for an on-air correction.

I sent them a note to contact Jeff for some real video. I guess Jason never saw the chopper footage. Don't you hate it when people can't admit thier own mistakes?
