RE:

Construction, Architecture, Engineering. Such an intricate industry with high volumes of information being exchanged. Sometimes, these short narratives that the media and politicians develop (sound bytes) don't accurately capture the scenario. Were the concrete materials actually substandard? Was the compressive strength not what was specified? what were the results of the slump test? did te engineer require a core sample with compressive strength test? Did he not use portland cement? Were the control joints not spaced accordingly as specified? Did they not have a broom finish to the surface? Were the elevations on the specifications accurate?

These are the educated questions (paired with answers) that should be asked and reported. The media has done a terrible job with it's due dilligence and the public had fed into all the hype and simple information.

Take some time out and research before publicly bashing a small contractors reputation, and grow up y'all.
