Zwiespalt zwischen medialer und gelebter Realität seiner Protagonisten. [...] Je weiter der Film in der Erzählung vorankommt, desto mehr verfällt Armstrong seinem eigenen Lügengebäude, seiner perfekten Heldengeschichte. [ case of isolation as with people on Social Media and B, C, D Celebrity types ] [...] The Program erzählt aber nicht nur eine Parabel über den schönen Schein im Sport und über die Heldenverehrung und -gläubigkeit der Millionen Zuschauer. Der Film variiert zugleich auch ein uramerikanisches Thema: Die Lüge ist fundamentaler Teil des American Dream, und der Mythos vom Comeback (was im Grunde auch die Urgeschichte des Sports ist) und der Traum von der Unbesiegbarkeit gehören dazu. //&!

Georg Diez über die Berichterstattung zu Griechenland - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Jeder Artikel, der von der "Rettung" Griechenlands spricht, richtet moralisch. An solcher Berichterstattung zeigt sich, wie manipulativ ein Journalismus agiert, der vor allem von deutschen Interessen handelt. Propaganda, sagt Edward Bernays, der den Begriff geprägt hat, ist die Reduktion der komplexen Wirklichkeit auf einige wenige, leicht zu verstehende Erklärungen, und es ist dabei letztlich egal, ob diese Erklärungen auch stimmen. [...] Denn in seinem Sinn ist zum Beispiel jeder Artikel, der die Euro-Krise darauf reduziert, dass Merkel oder Schäuble oder Brüssel oder sonst irgendjemand Griechenland "rettet", nichts anderes als Propaganda. "Merkel rettet die Banken" Seit Jahren ist "Rettung" das Wort, das viele Journalisten benutzen, um die Geschichte dieser Krise zu erzählen: Mit einem Wort wird etabliert, wer etwas tut & wer nichts tut, wer aktiv ist & wer passiv, wer am Abgrund steht & wer mit der helfenden Hand herbeieilt.

BBC News - Tucker denies role in Libor 'cesspit'
The Deputy Governor of the Bank of England Paul Tucker has compared abuse of the inter-bank lending rates (Libor) to a "cesspit" during evidence to the Treasury Select Committee.

He denied any government minister had encouraged him to "lean on" Barclays or any other bank over Libor and denied any knowledge or part in manipulation of interest rates.

BBC News - Barclays - a day of unanswered questions
A whistleblower at the Financial Services Authority (FSA) has already told the committee he believes the FSA has e-mail evidence of exchanges between the Barclays and the Bank of England about the Libor rate.

At the very least we need Tucker's written account of his own side of that conversation. So far he has volunteered no account and has been screened behind the Bank of England's press operation, which says they can't comment on anything not in the FSA judgment.

At the level of Barclays' senior management we need to know - and this is the critical question: why did Jerry del Missier form the opinion that Tucker had ordered the rigging of Libor?

If that were me, and I was ordered to breach my professional and industry rules, I would be checking the exact meaning with the boss I have just spoken to. We need to know what Del Missier actually did.

Bob Diamond, so far, he has not admitted culpability - only responsibility.

January 22, 2009 when the market was crashing every single day, when the world's central banks would do anything to halt the collapse in risk and asset prices, up to an including telling their host banks to lie about funding conditions, before the real QE1 was announced back in the middle of March, in which we made just this speculation.

*

Three and a half years later the puzzle is no more: it was all one big epic fraud, pardon, no fraud, as the CFTC and SEC settlements never admitted or denied fraud. Let's just call it benign market manipulation of a [$350-$500] trillion market.

... many have been warning for years, the biggest market manipulation fraud in history.

Libor affair shows banking’s big conceit - FT.com
http://www.ft.com/indepth/libor-investigation

[LIBOR scandal exposes] a big conceit at the very heart of the modern banking world.

Most notably, in recent decades large investment banks in the City of London and Wall Street have increasingly wrapped their activities with an evangelical adherence to the rhetoric of free markets; whenever they have wanted to justify
sky-high profits, wacky innovations or, most recently, the need to prevent a new regulatory drive, they have invariably cited the ideals of Adam Smith.

[...]

[T]he real issue was that Libor was never organised as a proper market in the first place, which is precisely why the manipulation continued unchecked on such a wide scale for so long.

[...] the market has been dominated by a small clique of powerful banks, which also controlled the BBA.

Barclays bank fined $453m for market fixing - YouTube
- great report ! about things going forward and the questions asked.

Barclays share price has plunged by 17 per cent after the UK bank was hit by record fines for distorting key interest rates.

The rates concerned play a major role in international financial markets and affect how businesses and consumers borrow money.

Barclays agreed to pay $453m for using underhand tactics, including price-fixing, to rig the markets.

Other British banks also slumped on reports that the scandal was set to engulf HSBC, Lloyds Banking Group and Royal Bank of Scotland.

BBC News - Barclays: Cameron says bank faces 'serious questions'
"Barclays was fined £290m ($450m) after an investigation into claims that several banks manipulated the Libor rate at which they lend to each other.

"The Chancellor George Osborne confirmed that HSBC, RBS, Citigroup and UBS are also under investigation.

"The scandal hit Barclays shares, which ended Thursday trading down 15.5%.

"Other banks shares fell as well, with RBS losing 11.5%, Lloyds down 3.9%, and HSBC giving up 2.6%.

"Investigators say that Barclays' traders lied to make the bank look more secure during the financial crisis and, sometimes - working with traders at other banks - to make a profit.

***
What I am still baffled about is, that not one trader has been charged with criminal behaviour and collusion. Because in the end for their 'stellar' performance, they got a bonus.
***

"The US Department of Justice also said criminal investigations into "other financial institutions and individuals" were ongoing.

Barclays paying $453 million to settle Libor probe | Reuters
- FSA says the bank's misconduct was 'serious and widespread' and extended over several years including through the 2008 financial crisis
- Other banks face probes too but Barclays is the first major financial institution to settle with regulators
- Watchdog says Libor submissions were reduced due to concerns over media image during financial crisis - reducing the amount of interest paid when the bank borrowed and increasing it when it lent
- Mr Diamond has apologised and said the behaviour wasn't consistent with the bank's 'values'. He and three other executives will give up their bonuses

Goldman Caught Manipulating Brent/WTI Spread: Penalty: $40,340 | zero hedge
"On 28 January 2011 the Exchange’s monitoring detected six notable “price spikes” in the April11 Brent/WTI spread, between 14:26 hours and 14:31 hours UK time. These were investigated and found to be the result of a limit order and several large market orders placed in quick succession by a GSF trader...In relation to the events described above, the Exchange alleged that GSF had breached the following Rule: "It shall be an offence for a trader or Member to engage in disorderly trading whether by high or low ticking, aggressive bidding or offering, or otherwise."

"Having examined the instant messenger logs of the communication between the GSF trader and their client, the Committee found no evidence of intentional manipulation of the market; nevertheless it considered the breach to be of a serious nature."

JPM, HSBC Sued For Silver Market Manipulation, Reaping Billions In Illegal Profits | zero hedge
Yesterday's announcement by CFTC commissioner Bart Chilton that he was fully aware of fraudulent efforts to persuade and deviously control silver prices may have been the straw that broke the gold and silver price manipulating camel's back on precious metal manipulation. Today, Brian Beatty and Peter Laskaris (Southern District Court of New York, cases 10-08146, and 10-01857) sued the two firms at the very top of the precious metal manipulation pyramid: JPMorgan and HSBC. The lawsuit, which seeks class action status, alleges that "between in or about March 2008 and continuing through the present, Defendants have combined, conspired and agreed to restrain trade in, fix, and manipulate prices of silver futures and options contracts traded in this District on the COMEX division of the NYMEX.

Neues Gesetz: Für Rohstoffspekulanten beginnt die Zeit des Zitterns | FTD.de
CFTC

Ihre Kompetenzen auf dem Rohstoffmarkt werden in mehrer Hinsicht verstärkt. So darf sie Positionsgrenzen über Handelsplätze hinweg setzen. Entsprechende Vorschläge für Energiekontrakte unterbreitete sie bereits. Zudem darf sie gegen mehrere Handelspraktiken vorgehen, die zuvor noch erlaubt waren. Dabei geht es um "Spoofing" und "Banging the close". Beim "Spoofing" gibt ein Händler ein Gebot mit der Absicht ab, es kurz danach wieder zurückzuziehen. Bei "Banging the close" versuchen Händler den Abrechnungspreis, der am Ende des Handelstages festgelegt wird, zu beeinflussen.
