ABC news with Dianne Sawyer is actually doing a series about Made in America. Since Scott Pelley became the anchor for CBS, I haven't watched ABC so I don't know if it is still ongoing. But they look for common household items.
I think like when foreign made autos became the standard for quality, it's the same with electronics... ipso facto since electronics haven't been an American target for some time. The auto quality mantle is slowly shifting back to American made cars but it takes time to convince a public. It seems we as a society have been concentrating too much on being leaders in the Information commodity during this so-called Information Age, and because of that our population and media aren't looking for much news outside of that field. Business magazines don't seem to care what a company makes or where... just how that relates to profits and share price.
From my own frustrating experience in trying to explain to friends and family how Red Digital Cinema is changing us over to the "New Visual", I suspect it's going to take some time before the positive message is mainstream about how a camera company not only changed our visuals, but where their product was made. Maybe Red should understand the public skepticism. After all, the news media did widely cover the negativity of Solyndra.
Word of mouth seems to be the most trusted source of information now. It appears small has taken on a new shine... you know, "close your Bank of America or Wells Fargo account and move it to a local credit union." And while Red isn't small by most standards, it is still small in comparison to multi-product conglomerates like sony, canon, panasonic etc.
As this revolt against "too big to fail" continues, I think Red will eventually be recognized for being one of the leaders of the new nearby warm and friendly business model.
