NYT: Tim Geithner Convinced NY AG Andrew Cuomo To Back Off Wall Street Prosecutions

This is simple stuff, and takes a moron about 30 seconds to see the picture. Fascism is the partnership between state and corporate, thats what we have here. This government controls the banks by proxy the banks own the government. You get to keep the machine lubed, it is just ironic they don't lube you before they ass pound you.

But you've also stated that the media owns the government (or is it vice versa)... so why would they run this story?

A couple of reasons, one to spark anger. Two, to spark partisan debate, sorta set the debate if you will. But more importantly, this just confirms what everyone knows, the government is criminal and there is nothing you can do, because hey, it always been that way. It gives people a sense of powerlessness. Soon the anger sparked will run away with itself, and thy want that as well.

So they're doing something wrong and then blowing the whistle on themselves is all part of their evil plot?

Then what was the motivation for instructing their "journalist" to write the article?
Look keep the thread on topic will ya?

Your fucking government not only bails these criminals out, but they obstruct justice. You obstruct justice and you go to jail.

I was on topic, Mike... sorry I wasn't following the preplanned trajectory you had hoped for.

Correct. So, why would the media "expose" this if they were also owned by the "fucking government"?

It would be nice, but that isn't how a financial fascist dictatorship works. See in our world, a little place I call the Land Of Za, the treasury dept protects the criminal, and if the SEC isn't to busy watching porn then the "president" might use them against a rating agency for having the audacity to say "The emperor has no close".
