Follow the Money
To quote Stephen Colbert, “Speech is free, but money talks.”
If the media covered business the way it does government, we might have
had no ENRON, no Bernie Madoff, no MF Global, no Fannie Mae, no
financial crisis – and none of our current crop of executives. The media
covers business like it does sports, but the economic future of our nation
– and indeed the world — demands greater oversight, accountability, and
analysis of business practices and promises.
