    Yeah -- they are clearly not thinking much about PR. But maybe they don't have to because consumers are not their customers -- big banks are, no?

    On another point, though: If even one banker had gone to jail over the economic collapse, AIG would not have had the stones to even consider this.

    The civil rights, gay rights and women's movements, designed to allow others to reach for power previously grasped only by white men, have made a real difference, and the outlines of 21st century America have emerged. -- Paul West of LA Times

      in that every day consumers are not AIG's customers.  But the fact that they were a MAJOR SOURCE OF BAIL OUT MONEY, and that that burns their name in the mind of many an American cannot be ignored.

      It's not consumers AIG has to fear, as per their immediate bottom line.  But it IS every day Americans AIG has to fear, as they watch their reputation further impuned. And here's why.

      When big business like AIG, seems stupid, callous and unappreciative of the bail out they received, they cement in the minds of many Americans the very things that are not in their best interest.

      WHICH IS JUST FINE WITH ME, as I'm happy to see their ass so bare naked.

      But the point of my diary is that AIG is INCOMPETENT in their PR, or too arrogant to think they need it.  AND, that where incompetence appears in one finger of the giant, you're likely to find it in another.
