The problem with Yodaorange's post is that it is based on some pretty shoddy reporting. Chana Joffe-Walt's piece that ran on Friday's Planet Money was an excerpt to generate interest to listen to the This American Life show that came out over the weekend. Media Matters examined several of the shows claims and found them untrue.
