Dylan Ratigan On The Legacy Of Bloomberg Reporter Mark Pittman

Originally aired November 30, 2009.  Runs approximately 2 minutes.


“Who sues the Fed? One reporter on the planet,” said Emma Moody, a Wall Street Journal editor who worked with Pittman at Bloomberg.

Hopefully, we will be able to inform the people enough to know how badly we’re getting screwed,” he said with a laugh.  “We need to know how to prevent it from happening again, and we need to know who did it.

Pittman’s fight to make the Fed more accountable resulted in an Aug. 24 victory in Manhattan Federal Court affirming the public’s right to know about the central bank’s more than $2 trillion in loans to financial firms. He drew the attention of filmmakers Andrew and Leslie Cockburn, who gave him a prominent role in their documentary about subprime mortgages, “American Casino,” which was shown at New York City’s Tribeca Film Festival in May.



The interview begins at the 1:45 mark.

As I've posted here many times, Pittman was a patriot. Not a leftist whack-job who hates capitalism, but a pragmatist who knew the "dance" and saw what was/is coming...Watch the video when he explains why this crisis is unexplainable to the public. Only a few understand it and that is why nothing is done to bring justice to the thieves. Has EHolder ever spoke of financial fraud, ever!? He is our attorney freakin' general!!!!

Again, RIP Mark...

Very well put, Josie. Mark Pittman is a hero, no ifs ands or buts. He went for the throat, and won.

It's good to see you again.
