21. They couldn't get away with overt fraud until the media was thoroughly compromised.

A fair unbiased media is essential if we want to preserve a democracy and well regulated capitalism. We need to make that argument whenever we can.

I'm sure you remember after the crash the media was pretty easy on those actually responsible. What I'm saying is we need to return to the days of real investigative journalism, especially TV journalism. The war on whistle blowers must end.

Additionally, the miscreants need to be subjected to some prison sentences.
