Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson gets grilled by Tom Brokaw — live from Beijing.
Running time, 07:36 minutes
Thank to VJ for alerting TBP about this this video, who posted the following comment:
"Brokaw repeatedly splashes Paulson in the face with reality on this morning’s Meet the Press: * Tells him the stimulus checks that his Treasury sent out "had about as much effect as a BB gun on a bear". * Displayed his ‘CONTAINED’ quote up on the screen, "I don’t see [subprime mortgage market troubles] imposing a serious problem. I think it’s going to be largely contained." * Showed the video of Chimpy saying that "Wall Street got drunk". Paulson said that in 5 months, he exits, stage Right."
Who knew Brokaw had the stones to grill a senior politico?

Yesterday, I was supposed to do a quick 3 minute spot at Bloomberg, so I headed off to the studio after the close to talk about AIG earnings.
Only the AIG earnings were rather delayed (more than 20 minutes), so I got to babble for a good long time.
