Well, not "wrath" really -- probably just another million dollar "cost of doing business" nuisance fee.
And not really "the viewers" -- just the ire of their Securities Investors ...

Federal prosecutors announced a civil lawsuit Tuesday against Bank of America for allegedly failing to disclose risks and misleading investors in an of $850 million mortgage-bond deal offered in 2008.
The federal court complaint alleged that the bank lied to investors about the relative riskiness of the mortgage loans that backed the securities, made false statements and filled the offering with a disproportionate amount of risky home loans originated through third-party brokers.
"Bank of America's reckless and fraudulent origination and securitization practices in the lead-up to the financial crisis caused significant losses to investors," said U.S. Attorney Anne Tompkins of North Carolina's western district. "Now, Bank of America will have to face the consequences of its actions."
Instead if slapping the Bankers with another "$5.7 million penalty" or another "$9.7 million in prejudgment interest" parking ticket
-- why don't they force the bankers to put people back in their foreclosed homes?
Or better yet, why don't they make the bankers 'live in their cars' for a year -- to see how they like it?
They can make it a Reality TV Show to up the ante -- call it "Heels on Wheels" or some such attention-getter.
Most of them "misleadingly" deserve it.
