General Motors swears it's just a case of bad timing. The automaker has severed its ties with CBS' Survivor, and the announcement comes on the heels of the controversial news that Survivor teams will be divided by race for the first half of this season. GM says the decision to split with Survivor was made long ago because the people who participate on the show and watch the show don't drive GM vehicles. GM sponsored Survivor for six seasons.
