The Daily Show takes a close look at the banking sector in the US where, unlike in many countries, the banks seem to be more like crime syndicates than staid financial institutions.
In the first clip, the show discusses yet another revelation about how the banks and ratings agencies colluded to play fast and loose with other people’s money while they got rich, knowing that what they were doing was corrupt and likely to cause a collapse.
In the second clip, Jason Jones compares the banking practices in the US and Canada and the way their respective public views bankers. Where does this show find guys like Tabacco to interview? Is there some directory of rich idiots with no sense of self-awareness?
(These clips aired on June 24, 2013. To get suggestions on how to view clips of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report outside the US, please see this earlier post.)
