Bloomberg & NPR Roll Out Special Goldman Sachs Programming

Two interesting looking programs in next 24 hours talking about the Goldman Sachs/SEC allegations:

First, a good group of people in a one-hour live Charlie Rose special tonight on Bloomberg TV talking the Goldman Sachs debacle:

Tonight, Sunday April 18th at 6 PM /ET, Bloomberg Television will present a live one-hour special, “The Case Against Goldman Sachs—What’s Next?,” discussing the latest on Goldman Sachs, the SEC and what the future holds for Wall Street.

Bloomberg Television anchor Betty Liu, along with Chief Washington Correspondent Peter Cook, will provide analysis and insight before the start of the U.S. trading day tomorrow, as well as interview experts on the story including:

  • William D. Cohan, former investment banker and author of “House of Cards: A Tale of Hubris and Wretched Excess on Wall Street”
  • Louise Story, finance and Wall Street reporter for the New York Times
  • Tim Metz, crisis management expert and co-founder of communications firm Hullin Metz & Co. LLC (HMC)
  • Charles Clark, Partner at Kirkland & Ellis and former SEC enforcement attorney
  • Greg Zuckerman, Wall Street Journal reporter and author of the book, "The Greatest Trade Ever: The Behind-the-scenes story of how John Paulson Defied Wall Street and Made Financial History"

“The Case Against Goldman Sachs—What’s Next?” will air live at 6 PM and repeat at 9 PM / ET.


Second, Monday’s s On Point on NPR has Matt Taibbi going head-to-head with Greg Zuckerman, which should be entertaining.

The SEC charges Goldman Sachs with fraud in the subprime mortgage meltdown. Now what?
