GM RESPONDS TO DATELINE NBC RETRACTION

 DETROIT, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- General Motors (NYSE: GM) Executive President and General Counsel, Harry J. Pearce, issued the following reply to NBC tonight:
 We have reviewed the statement that NBC News has made tonight, and we accept it. Even in our electronic age, truth remains the only basis upon which a society can make correct decisions, especially those that affect the health and well-being of millions of its citizens. In view of NBC's announcement, and because it is our business to design and manufacture great cars and trucks and not to be preoccupied with litigation, we are tomorrow dismissing the defamation suit that we brought Monday. NBC will reimburse General Motors for its actual costs of this investigation.
 With this matter behind us, we trust that the safety record of our 1973-1987 full-size pickup trucks will be fairly and objectively examined. We're confident our position that these vehicles are safe will be upheld when the ongoing investigation is concluded.
