This week’s “Dan Rather Reports” presents an in-depth interview with Neil Barofsky, who recently stepped down as the Special Inspector General for TARP, more commonly known ; as the $700 billion dollar taxpayer bailout of the country’s biggest banks. Barofsky warns that the safeguards that are supposed to be in place to help avoid another bank meltdown are woefully insufficient – and that another, bigger crisis could be right around the corner.
Host Dan Rather presents hard-edged field reports, in-depth interviews and investigative pieces that emphasize accuracy, fairness and guts in their reporting. The program covers topics including, but not limited to, politics, the environment, the global economy, and international affairs and conflicts. Our format is dictated by the needs of individual stories and each show typically consists of multiple stories, but some shows are devoted to a single, hour-long report. Dan Rather Reports airs Tuesdays at 8pm ET on AXS TV.
