Pure corruption: Barclays rigged the LIBOR rate for 4 straight years

The story's already been posted but I wanted to point out how thoroughly corrupted the financial system is and how it is all being exposed. Last week, Matt Taibbi was telling people about municipal bond auctions being rigged in all 50 states and now it's exposed that the LIBOR rate has been rigged for years.

These are HUGE stories, this kind of bank corruption is why we the people, the 99%, are being screwed around the world.
