Matt Taibbi and Sam Seder Skewer JP Morgan’s Dimon & CNBC’s Bubblehead Maria Bartiromo



This is very amusing but indicative of the mainstream media's take on JP Morgan Chase's CEO Jamie Dimon.

JP Morgans $11 Billion dollar fine, means nothing!

JPMorgan earns a respectable $10 billion per quarter in interest income alone from money that they borrow from the FED for near to nothing?! So now a SEC $11 Billion dollar fine means nothing! If I made this up no one would believe me. Yes, Truth is stranger than Fiction, again!

That was great ...

... thanks for posting.

And what a great format, too: take an interview clip and break it down to show the absurdity of the propagandists.

Too fat to flail.

JP Morgan's Heavy Fines

...are merely the way in which they divvy up their ill gotten gains with their partner, the federal government.

What is the social function of JPM?

I've never seen or heard this show before, but the host is acting like JPM should be an organization run in the public interest. I guess you could think that way since all the taxpayers are forced by our government to support JPM. The point is that JPM should not be supported by taxpayers, and should not be allowed to commit fraud without penalty.

They did a good job showing how CNBC is in the tank with the banks and spewing propaganda, but they miss the main problem. There is no such thing as too big to fail. There is no reason for tax money to be used to support these big banks, and there is no reason why these banks should be given a license to commit crimes.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

That's a really good comment

That's a really good comment worth speaking about. I don't agree with him neither regarding the responsibilities that JPM has in the public interest (apart from following the letter of the law, which obviously they don't). The commentator is coming at this from a different political conviction. He is talking about the implied social contract that banks have with the public because they have been given license to create currency and so they should act in the public interest. A lot of people buy into this thought (not me). You are correct in your assessment though in that it encourages government (I mean the taxpayer) to buy in to cover their gambling debts. That is folly and that is why socializing losses in the banking system ultimately fails as there is no incentive for them to be profitable on their own two feet. The U.S. is not immune to this socialist idea. This is the very thought that needs to be corrected and that people need to be educated on.

This was so interesting to watch

the most stunning thing about it is just how removed from what's right, things have become. It wasn't all that long ago that something so damning would be met with obvious and well deserved outrage and now it's met with laughter and an 'it's wrong but that's just the way it is' mentality. I get the humor in the absurdity but I am amazed by the acceptance. We are so screwed.

bankers make budgets and budgets make business

and business makes money and money makes power and power makes media that makes room for more power, more money, more business, and more budgets.

the only way to control competition in money is to raise money like a curtain above the heads of competitors until they drown in inflationary/Regulatory obligations and with government security in their bonds and money rackets they can hire a bookie and ignore the Public Relations to focus on toxic derivative schemes and individual sex pursuits in the worship of volcanos and saturn moons...
