I'm a long on WAMUQ and I've been following everyone's posts here on the Yahoo Board. I was thinking: maybe we should all send an e-mail to Mr. Dylan Ratigan (MSNBC) asking him, politely, to report on this historic theft. Ratigan goes after the banks/bailouts/bank bonuses on his show, so maybe he may just report on the takedown of Washington Mutual. Anyway, it's just an idea. I sent him an e-mail earlier. You can visit this page to send him one. Good luck to all longs.
Agreed that the Mainstream Media has been silent on this issue, but I think it's worth a shot. Joyce and many other WAMU'ers compelled the U.S. Trustee to establish an Equity Committee, and I think that we can force this issue onto the main stage. And we can start by flooding Mr. Ratigan's and other T.V. news pundits' inboxes with e-mails. In my e-mail to Ratigan, I linked to Kirsten Grind's articles and I asked him to make the connection between WAMU's collapse and subsequent seizure and JPMorgan's recent excesses.
I've been forwarding Kirsten G's articles and selected BK filings to Dylan and tweeting regularly on this to him, Chuck Todd, Arianna Huffington, and several others. Have also been leaving messages on whitehouse.gov daily Re Geithner's role in this and exhorting POTUS to dump him. But it would be great for more of us to do the same. Use #WaMu hashtag on Twitter, FB, etc.
