I suggest you check the morgues of automotive press periodicals. Most of the information I receive starts with Automobile and Car & Driver. Both have on-line search capability. Then I would follow through Business Week, Forbes, and Fortune. The automotive boys smelled a rat from the git-go and called it what it was. The business press was slow to pick up the scent because they didn't understand what the merger did to both marques; they were just looking at numbers. By the time they figured it out, it was over. The European press never got a whiff from what I can tell.
