When Things Are Bad, Obfuscate!!

So here's the story:

General Motors Co. is abandoning its decades-old practice of reporting monthly auto sales, saying a 30-day period doesn’t provide an adequate snapshot of the company’s complex business or the broader industry....

Yah, it's "complex" and there's a "broader industry," and......you can see the foofoodust, ain'a?

Sales are slowing down.  Profits are harder to come by because to get sales, GM (and the others) are throwing LARGE money at consumers with 'rebates' and 'incentives.'  They are recovering some of it by ......!!! Ta-Da !!!!!!....throwing the screws to their dealers.

So it's just not "adequate" to report on slowing sales.
