Timothy Geithner for Wonks
Once again, Jon Stewart makes "real" journalists look like uneducated chumps.
Here's a link to a 42-minute interview Stewart had with former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. (We couldn't get the embed to work.) I would say my attitude toward Geithner is about 51% positive. There's a lot about Stewart's approach to be critical of, like his tendency to cut off Geithner whenever he's trying to make a substantive point. But I've never seen a major media newsman as well informed and comfortable with talking about derivatives as Stewart is here.
I don't recommend this video if you're not particularly interested in the subject matter, but if you are, I think you'll find it entertaining.
The link is here.
