Earlier this week, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie “It sounds like Diamond” Dimon, was quoted as saying that Sen. Elizabeth Warren, an outspoken advocate of financial reform who helped create the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau before becoming a lawmaker, was clueless about how banks actually work. The Massachusetts senator says that Mr. Dimon doth protest too much. [More]
If you go on TV to argue a controversial viewpoint, it’s to be expected when the host of the show questions you on your allegations. But what happened last Friday on CNBC’s Closing Bell is just an embarrassing example of how far a financial “news” network will go to defend the head of a huge bank just because that institution is performing well on the stock exchange.

The last week has been great for Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, or would be if he were a regular reader of Consumerist.

Late last night, two separate lawsuits were filed against JPMorgan Chase & Co and its Chief Operating Officer, Jamie Dimon, accusing the bank and its management of excessive risk that led to trading losses of at least $2 billion.
JPMorgan Chase dropped a hefty financial bomb on everyone yesterday, admitting that it lost $2 billion in six weeks after some bad trading decisions. CEO Jamie Dimon revealed the news after trading closed last night, admitting that the company only has itself to blame.
In case you’ve been asleep for the last few months, there are more than a handful of people out there who aren’t too happy about the fact that executives at bailed-out banks are reaping huge salaries while none of them have been called to account for the actions that required them to be bailed out in the first place.
