This piece by Matt Taibbi is one of those multi-page journalistic pieces that makes the form inescapably crucial. The conclusion of the piece, the defense given by the defense lawyers, is amazing in a revelatory kind of way. If you still find yourself scratching your head at just how the hell no one has gone to jail yet, maybe this piece will solve it for you.
Bonus bit: Over at Matt Taibbi’s blog, there’s a little bit more information on the bid rigging scandal described in the linked story above.
