Jesse Eisinger, the Pulitzer-winning journalist now working at ProPublica, tells Bloomberg View columnist Barry Ritholtz how the collapse of Arthur Andersen, Enron and WorldCom led to a neutered Justice Department. The title of his new book, “The Chickenshit Club,” comes from a speech that then-Southern District U.S. Attorney James Comey gave to prosecutors saying that if they were never losing, they were only taking on easy cases. This interview aired on Bloomberg Radio.
