The Daily Show: You Can't Jam Banking Regulation Down A Country's Throat


The Daily Show's John Oliver and Jason Jones took on Wall Street and those who are still claiming that we don't need no stinking government regulations, no matter how many new revelations come to light about how these financial institutions or their enablers like the credit ratings agencies have behaved.

It seems we could be taking quite a few lessons from the Canadians when it comes to regulating our banking system here in the United States, which Jones did a wonderful job of highlighting during his segment following the opening on this Monday evening's The Daily Show.

Sadly, the better part of our corporate media could be taking a few lessons on what's worth "reporting" on from the comedy shows as well.
