Am I paranoid to think that the reason investment banks easily got a massive 750B handout while auto makers are having a hard time just borrowing a small $25B from Govt is due to the fact that the Goldbergs and Steins work at banks while Smiths and Richards work in the auto industry? I mean look at the coverage: "Big Three auto CEOs flew private jets to ask for taxpayer money" ... http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/11/19/autos.ceo.jets/index.html The media didn't report this type of thing when banking execs came to DC looking for handouts. I am sure there are other factors involved, but the media's reporting of this whole things is so biased. FYI, don't start a flame war. I am not an anti-Semite and have little tolerance for bigots. I am just pointing out something that is obvious to simple observation and hoping to get an intelligent debate going on here.
