Bill Gephardt is a supposed consumer advocate who broadcasts his stories on KUTV Channel 2 here in Salt Lake City. He has been asked NUMEROUS times to do investigative stories on the local car dealerships and the scams they are pulling on unsuspecting consumers. Mr. Gephardt has even been given material to back up these claims that he could check for himself but yet has not done so. If this man is truly a consumer advocate then he would do stories on these dealerships and be damned the revenue that his station gets from dealership advertising. The RIP-OFF here are the watchers of this guy and KUTV for paying him. Mr. Gephardt is doing his viewers a disservice. Michael West Jordan, Utah

Does this car dealer advertise on this TV station

AUTHOR: Auto dealer fraud Investigator - ()

Most TV stations will not do any stories on car dealers that advertise with them. TV stations do not like to expose crazy crap in the auto industry because that's where they get most of their advertising dollars from.  Does this car dealer advertise on this TV station yes or no?

I would guess that because Mr. Gephardt didn't bail you out of a stupid car deal, he's a Ripoff..

AUTHOR: Ken - ()

 How close did I come to the truth?  IF you TRULY have been illegally treated by a dealer, notify your states dealer licensing commission.  They, also, won't act if it's just because YOU didn't exercise due diligence in making your deal(s).

West Jordan Utah,

AUTHOR: Karl - ()

You can always send your story to networks that are not influenced by the advertisers, like FRONTLINE/WGBH and Democracy Now. I believe that both of their addresses are available at this website. Just type in 555030 and scroll down to the consumer comment that was posted on August 27, 2012 at Ripoff Report #555030.

Good luck to you, and make sure to expose your Ripoff Report all over the web at sites like Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and Facebook every day!

I Respectfully Disagree

AUTHOR: Get Gephardt - (USA)

My name is Matt. I work as a producer for Bill Gephardt. 


We receive about 1000 requests for stories a week and of those we try and select the ones that will most often benefit viewers. Our record will show that, over time, we have reported on car dealerships and other sponsors when the story has warranted we do so. Financial obligations are dealt with by the sales department who act independently of Get Gephardt. 


9 times out of 10, if a story is passed on, it is because we cannot simply take the customers word and evidence will not back up the claim. This is especially true with car dealership stories as often people think there are rules in place to protect them when there are no such rules (IE: 3 day returns, or lemon laws on used cars, or a rate that one assumes is fixed but in fact is not).



If Michael in West Jordan in fact has a story that he believes is newsworthy and has the evidence to back it up, I suggest he contact us again. MGephardt@kutv2.com will reach me directly.
