Consumerist asks financial protection questions at the White House

Thumb160x_farrellthumb_01 The folks at Consumerist do remarkably good reporting, focusing on consumer matters that affect us in our day to day lives.

You might recall that they've drawn our attention to front groups and astroturfers, which are companies paid to deceive the public, like on health care reform.

The folks at the White House are serious about helping us all out with consumer protection, like when a credit card company pulls a fast one, like mailing a bill out late and then charging late fees.

Check out the conversation here. When the transcript is available, I'll have more.
