Anderson Cooper To Whistleblower: Why Do You Want To Hurt Those Nice Banks?

News

Well that was fast! The media has already, as Hamilton Nolan astutely predicted, turned on Greg Smith, the former Goldman Sachs analyst turned writer. You might remember Greg Smith from the scathing Op-Ed he wrote in the New York Times back in April, announcing his resignation from Goldman Sachs and revealing that their corporate culture is about as disgusting as we all have probably imagined it to be. At the time of the Op-Ed, the media wasn't so sure about what to make of him, but erred on the side of "whistleblower," with a dollop of hero! Except now the Lamestream Media has changed its mind and decided that he kind of sucks because the banks are full of shitbags, tell us something we don’t know. Actually, he isn't "believable," probably (this is from the New York Times). Or maybe he is actually a LIAR, look at him LYING his ass off and getting paid a shitload of money to do it! That last one, of course, is from Forbes magazine, a paragon of probity.


Anyway, so here is an interview that Greg Smith did with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes. And luckily, Cooper asked some very important questions. Like: wasn’t this a BETRAYAL? Wasn't it a BETRAYAL of this huge multimillion dollar corporation to hurt its feelings by writing a bunch of mean words about it in the New York Times? (Answer: no, although we would have accepted "who cares.") Also, is working at Goldman Sachs just like Fight Club, minus Brad Pitt pissing in your clam chowder and with less emphasis on personal hygiene products? (Yes, Anderson Cooper compares Goldman Sachs to Fight Club, though we’re not sure if he means the book or the movie.) Anyway, what is the REAL LESSON here? Banks suck, and no one empowered to do anything about it seems to care. Or alternatively, they seem to care about making sure that the banks can continue to act without consequences, and they help accomplishing that by assessing Greg Smith as a person rather than assessing the institutions that he's offering criticisms of. Criticizing the BANKS, you see, would be "biased," and we can't have that.

MAZIE! MAZIE MAZIE MAZIE!

Have you all been noticing that Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii has been breaking her foot off in some asses lately? We have been noticing it!

This woman, who is battling cancer, is OVER IT. She is OVER THESE DUMB ASSHOLE GOP MEN in the Senate and wherever else these men are currently bothering her, and she is probably done with YOUR FACE, if your face is one of the things that pisses Mazie Hirono off. Here she is addressing ridiculous allegations that Senate Judiciary Committee chair Chuck Grassley is somehow doing his job and working real hard to get in touch with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman Brett Kavanaugh allegedly tried to rape 36 years ago, so they can work out a time for Dr. Blasey to testify for the committee in a way that makes her comfortable:

Donald Trump's presidency has made white nationalism fashionable again. It doesn't help matters that social networking giant Facebook has offered white nationalists a global platform for their hate. Back in May, Motherboard obtained internal documents that revealed how Facebook planned to handle white supremacist content on its site after Charlottesville. It was incredibly stupid.

See, Facebook wouldn't let you post praise of white supremacy as an ideology or identify yourself as a "proud" white supremacist. It would allow you to post praise of white nationalism as an ideology or identify yourself as a "proud" white nationalist. All those tech bros and all those hoodies in the same place and they still couldn't muster the collective brain power to understand that white supremacy and white nationalism are synonymous, by which I mean the exact same thing but with a slightly different arrangement of letters.
