Same As The Old Boss? So Soon?

BILL MOYERS: To hear you say this is unusual because you supported Barack Obama, during the campaign. But you're seeming disillusioned now.

WILLIAM K. BLACK: Well, certainly in the financial sphere, I am. I think, first, the policies are substantively bad. Second, I think they completely lack integrity. Third, they violate the rule of law. This is being done just like Secretary Paulson did it...
(emphasis mine)

Watch the video, read the transcript and then decide for yourself if this administration is being transparent and honest in its handling of this "moral crisis", as William Black describes the current financial mess.

Oh, and thank you, New York Times, for devoting so much space on Michelle Obama's fashion sense in today's paper.

If you want to be truly outraged about the media establishment, watch this story on Bill Moyers' site (and be grateful that we still have Stewart and Colbert).

Huh, why worry? The Onion has the solution.

Btw, the other guy we still have is Matt Taibbi.

His Rolling Stone Article.

His blog response to the whiny AIG exec who wrote a NYT oped.

I wonder why so few people are outraged. And Obama had better be very careful.

The Tabibi article seems to have struck a chord for many people. That we are hearing sane voices among comedians and a corporate rock magazine is sad.
