From Liz: Consumer Reports' faux pas

I used to be a Consumer Reports devotee. We've turned to their ratings before making some of the biggest purchases of our life: our car and our daughter's carseat.

Now, I'm not so sure I can trust them.

I don't mind a rare retracted report. I was surprised, but what got to me is the fact they shoppped out the testing.

So much for my vision of the Consumer Reports organization, which I guess down deep I knew was too good to be true: people in lab coats and goggles carrying clipboards and peeking over bubbling Pyrex flasks.
