Jon Stewart's Extended Interview of Timothy Geithner

The Daily Show, and especially the extended interviews are not easily accessible outside the US; and that's a pity - as Jon Stewart is an amazing interviewer. The interviews are far more in depth and in detail than many news channels - especially those that are seemingly "constrained" in their ability to get news; despite the fact that news is their business. The extended interview of former US Secretary of Treasury, Timothy Geithner - on the bailout and financial crisis is amazing. It was one of the clearest discussions on the motivations, constraints and ideas that shaped the US bailout. There is no real conclusion on whether it was the best way, but the discussion is definitely worth watching to at least understand all the various pressures.

Unfortunately, I think the full interview is only available on torrent outside the US.
