Matt Taibbi: JPMorgan Hearings Show 'We Have Absolutely No Idea What's Going On'
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
If there's been one positive result of the largest U.S. bank grappling with $6.2 billion in trading losses, perhaps it's everyone else learning how little we truly know about these massive institutions. Matt Taibbi recently told Sam Seder's Majority Report that a Senate committee's recent grilling of former JPMorgan Chase executives over the London Whale scandal was a pivotal moment for those hoping to hold banks more accountable. Some suggest that the report, which found that JPMorgan executives consistently disregarded or covered up red flags, shows that big banks have become too big to manage. "They showed everybody that there are zero internal controls at these companies and that we have absolutely no idea what's going on, and that just exposed everybody to the danger that we're in," Taibbi said. There appears to be growing support for ending the government backstop for big banks. Roughly half of Americans support breaking up the big banks, according to a rece ...

Fred Hiatt is Atrios' "Wanker of the Decade," 1st runner-up
America Blog - almost 5 years
This is not only a great pick for this award, it's also an education in our sometime-topic — how to read the media. First, the "great pick" — this award goes to the Fred Hiatt for collecting the "world['s] greatest gaggle of wankers" — the whole Washington Post editorial page (my emphasis): Krauthammer. Broder. Hoagland. Kristol. Novak. Cohen. Lane. Cupp. Thiessen. Kurtz. Samuelson. Diehl. Kelly. Noonan. Will. Ignatius. Parker. Marcus. Milbank. Gerson. Some of these people are no longer with us, and I have no idea which ones Hiatt is really responsible for, but I'm a lazy blogger so I'll just throw them all in his column. Imagine assembling this collection of horrors, and being proud of it. ... It's an award for individual achievement in wanking, and an award for the highest achievement in group wanking. Congratulations, Fred! But do not miss this, students of media. Great catch by Atrios: Some years back I had a wee epiphany when I realized that, for the most ...

Seder plans to offer premium subscriptions to the podcasts, which allow subscribers access to expanded commentary not on the basic podcast, as well as DVDs of the 2004 TV series Pilot Season, produced and directed by Seder, starring Sarah Silverman and originally broadcast on the now-defunct Trio cable network; the series was a sequel to Seder's independent film Who's the Caboose? Seder's popularity on the Majority Report was enhanced by frequently taking instant messages from a conservative who goes by the screen name "Primer."
  • 2009
    Age 42
    In November 2009 Seder hosted a pilot for NBC of an American version of Have I Got News For You.

    More Details Hide Details

  • 2007
    Age 40
    On April 6, 2007, Air America Radio announced that The Sam Seder Show would end its run at the 9AM-Noon spot effective Friday, April 13, 2007, but that Seder would do a Sunday show entitled Seder on Sunday.
    More Details Hide Details The 9AM-Noon time slot was filled by Lionel, who hosted a late night radio show on the WOR Radio Network. This change is part of what Air America President Mark J. Green called "Air America 2.0", his plan to transform Air America into a profitable leader in progressive talk radio. Lionel lost two-thirds of Seder's live affiliates, live streaming and most of the audience within a year of assuming the timeslot.
  • THIRTIES
  • 2005
    Age 38
    On August 9, 2005, Nikki Seder gave birth to a daughter, Myla Rae Seder.
    More Details Hide Details
    In the closing minutes of their Wednesday, March 9, 2005 show, Garofalo announced that Sam and his wife Nikki were expecting a daughter.
    More Details Hide Details This event in his life slightly colored and affected Seder's commentary. On more than one occasion he has voiced concerns about just how he was going to explain elements of this world to his daughter as she grows up, after witnessing actions by the Republican Party that Seder felt might adversely affect her future.
  • 2004
    Age 37
    On September 1, 2004, Sam Seder was briefly detained by the United States Secret Service during his live, on-site coverage of the Republican National Convention at Madison Square Garden.
    More Details Hide Details Shortly after Zell Miller gave his speech, Seder began searching (with a sign in hand) on the convention floor for a willing homosexual Republican to interview live on radio. It was not long before he was physically removed from the floor and after brief questioning, was asked (or according to some, "strongly encouraged") to leave the convention. Seder later commented that his wearing of a lapel pin that he had been given by a Secret Service agent at the Democratic National Convention earlier that year had kept him from being ejected from the convention completely.
    In March 2004, Seder became co-host along with Janeane Garofalo on Air America Radio's The Majority Report.
    More Details Hide Details In July 2006 Garofalo departed the show, offering positive comments about working with Seder. Seder was later offered a new contract with Air America Radio, and his show moved from the 7-10PM (Eastern) spot to a 9AM-Noon spot, retitled The Sam Seder Show.
