Footage of Wall Street Journal reporter David Enrich '01 outlining the LIBOR interest rate scandal was featured last on two popular news shows on Comedy Central last week. The footage of Enrich, dated July 6, first appeared on The Daily Show on July 18, and the following day on The Colbert Report. Hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, respectively, used outtakes of the interview with Enrich to help explain the nature of the London Interbank Offered Rate (Libor) interest rate scandal.
Enrich can be seen about six minutes into The Daily Show footage, and about three minutes into The Colbert Report episode.
