Laura Tyson a very qualified economics professor, commentator and former member of the Clinton administrator appeared on The Rachel Maddow show. She was there as expert on the topic of the $750 billion Wall Street bail-out bill. It was an informative conversation. Tyson’s very good at her job and so was Rachael Maddow for asking the right questions.
The problem surfaced yesterday when David Sirota notified Maddow that Tyson was also on the board of directors of Morgan Stanley and was earning $350,ooo in that position. She didn’t disclose that to Maddow’s staff.
Here’s the most unusal response by Maddow as she admits the error on the air and shows Tyson’s response. (I guess there a first time for everything.)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKN7iQrvq8Q
Hat Tip to David Sirota, his update on my Facebook page and his excellent Blog For Our Future.
