"Everybody in the media who wants to go after the business community… They should go after Bernanke. Bernanke has in secret, spent hundreds of billions bailing out one group and not bailing out another group. I don’t see anybody in the media demanding the transparency of the Fed that they demand for the rest of the federal government. I think it is corrupt and it is wrong."

Newt Gingrich, following up his attack on former Senator Chris Dodd and Congressman Barney Frank (both of whom he accused of criminal behavior), with a withering tirade against Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. If you remember, the media called Rick Perry’s charge of “treason” against Bernanke as a major faux pas. Will that stick for Gingrich, who gave a much more extended and in Decoder’s eyes even harsher critique tonight?
