The Weekend Desk Report

We had planned to make this Report 20 percent longer, but then we caved to parental pressure.

Market Update

Assange Your Fears
Maybe The Rosie Show would've fared better if all the guests had been guaranteed total anonymity.

Conflict of Interest
On the one hand, it seems a little hypocritical. On the other hand, maybe they're just creating business for her side gig.

All Shook Down
Finally this week . . . wait a minute. If it took two years to close the loopholes Phil Pagano exploited, who benefited in the meantime? Oh yeah, the long lost Blagojevich brother.
