    Insurance Companies?

    Oil Companies?

    Corporate Criminals?

    No shit.

    Let's sit back and see how Holder makes this go away.

    I'm betting a small fine, some promises of structural changes at FOX, possibly some public apologies...

    And then the Savvy Businessmen will go back to business as usual.

    As a hardcore Democrat, Obama has shaken my faith. Imagine what he's done for independents.

      The WH leaks a false rumor to a credible news source that his DOJ is pursuing RICO charges.  

      Then he sits by and slow walks a cursory, shallow, investigation.  We won't hear anything further (other than "the matter is under investigation") for at least a year or more. Final results will be announced in about 3 yrs.
