The year was 1982. The American Auto Industry was criticized for the quality of its products. The 24 hour news channel, Ted Turner's CNN went to Investigative Reporter Robert Vito and asked if he could put together a series telling the story of Detroit's Big Three automakers taking back the auto industry in 'Detroit Fights Back'. This story was produced by Robert Vito and brought print reporter Peter Arnett to the television screen. It was this series of stories which led to the opening of CNN's Detroit Bureau, with Robert Vito its Bureau-Chief and Correspondent. A great story and part of automotive history.
