General Motors Chief Executive Mary Barra intensified her campaign to show how the auto maker has changed, saying a newly appointed global safety chief will meet with her once a month to discuss issues and internal investigators have been told there are "no sacred cows" when it comes to identifying how the company mishandled an ignition-switch recall. Ms. Barra, who met with the media for the first time since the ignition-switch recall began in February, again apologized for the situation and offered condolences to family members who may lost loved ones. The switches have been linked to 12 deaths. She said an internal probe conducted by Chicago attorney Anton Valuka should be completed within the next few months since accuracy more than speed is a top priority.
