I was glad to get the chance to discuss the misnamed JP Morgan settlement on Democracy Now yesterday. It’s misnamed because it’s not a single settlement, but a series of settlements, mainly if not entirely FHFA and state actions, bundled together, plus fines. Plus as you will see soon that’s far from the only way it’s been misreported!
I had been booked to get a much bigger chunk of the hour, but if you saw the show, Glenn Greenwald was up first, and he likes giving detailed and energetic answers, and Amy Goodman was happy to give him as much rope as he wanted. So on the one hand, I only got a few minutes on the main show. The flip side is coming right after Greenwald probably means I got more viewers than I would have most days.
We had a second, much longer chat for her website, so I hope you’ll look at both clips.
