How audacious to defend a sector that has been the catalyst for the savages of economic travesty. And the effrontery of expressions such as 'inexperienced journalism' and 'financial illiteracy' to describe factuality by the media is pathetic.
The British press is admirably united in its paramount duty to uphold integrity to report the facts behind this fiscal crisis.
Even this week we read that a hedge fund has recently reaped a £270m profit from the UK taxpayer through short-selling RBS shares.
Are we supposed to digest incidents like these with a shrug? No. If a body such as the BBA had a modicum of responsibility it would own up to the misdemeanours of its sector and stop meddling with the media, whose remit it is to pinpoint the perpetrators.
