Green Room Blues: Matt Taibbi Edition

Matt Taibbi on the foreclosure crisis:

You’ve heard of Too Big to Fail — the foreclosure crisis is Too Big for Fraud. Think of the Bernie Madoff scam, only replicated tens of thousands of times over, infecting every corner of the financial universe. The underlying crime is so pervasive, we simply can’t admit to it — and so we are working feverishly to rubber-stamp the problem away, in sordid little backrooms in cities like Jacksonville, behind doors that shouldn’t be, but often are, closed.

Favorite line heard in the green room this month: “The subject you’re talking about is complex, Matt, so we’re going to give you six minutes.”
