Corn on MSNBC: Romney’s Barclays Tie-Up


David Corn joined Georgetown Professor Michael Eric Dyson and political analyst Richard Wolffe on MSBNC’s “Martin Bashir” to discuss how the Barclays interest-fixing scandal is hurting the Romney campaign. Barclays CEO Bob Diamond was set to host a fundraiser for Romney in London, before the bank was slapped with a $450 million fine and he was forced to resign.

They then discussed how the GOP message machine is misfiring on health care—and how even popular conservative pundits are complaining about Republicans as a result.

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
