My comment: only when Caesar and Mammon and the Media are deeply and incestuously wedded in their interests against the average Joe would you see the spectacle of a bank or other big financial institution held up to public scorn as the example of ruthless capitalism, while its directors without breaking a smile funnel unseemly gulps of wealth into the maw of the media-driven campaign of the politico scorning the bank.

Yup.
