YouTube - Robert Rubin Ponzi Scheme - Media Silence

Madoff makes headlines as former Treasury Secretary, Robert Rubin, slips under the media’s radar.

On 4 december 2008, the New York Post announced a federal lawsuit had been filed against Citigroup’s Robert Rubin, and former citi CEO, Prince.

The 2 are alleged to have played a role in a Ponzi scheme which has wiped out trillions of dollars worldwide.

The lawsuit says Citigroup’s shareholder value lost over 122 billion dollars. This would suggest that Rubin is accused of involvement in a scheme that would dwarf that of Madoff.

When the news broke of Madeoff’s scheme, the media jumped to cover the story. Time magazine even suggested the story as a contender in the top 10 scandals of 2008.

Looks like MADDOW's scam is going unreported too. MSNBC delivered the election to the Democrats with GE ready to slop up government bailout cash sometime in '09.
