The NY Times is doing a good job of following this story, sir as well as other news sources. Whether they get to the bottom of this particular fraud will depend on whether they turn the screws enough on the right conspirators to get them to squeal on the whale...

"The New York Times" is about the best the US produces in terms of journalism. The format of the paper and the team of top notch journalists is cutting edge in their coverage in what has been the financial hub of planet earth. Sure there are some nutty liberals on their payroll, Alessandra Stanley and Frank Rich come to mind, but they have been covering financial fraud longer than the other newpapers. Just because Mr. Cohen is CT's richest resident does not mean he gets a free pass when it comes to the law, but his teams of lawyers are working overtime to protect the head and keep him out of prison. Still there are thousands of hedge funders who will just fill any vacuum left by SAC's displacement.

There was a notable article last week on investigations into SAC, clearly influential senators like Grassley want to see the case have success:

Also this article today was on the top list of emailed pieces:

Michael Steinberg, a portfolio manager with SAC was arrested at his home Friday by the FBI, and later released on a $3M bond. He is charged with insider trading on Dell shares, for which the company has already paid $14M in fines, on top of the $616M they have already agreed to pay to date, and the investigation isn't over yet. The saga continues.
