In my opinion, there is some subtle good news to be found in this. If Bernanke is actually engaging in a PR campaign to try to repair the image of the Federal Reserve, this means the American people are waking up to the problems with the institution.

You don't need to engage in damage control if there is no damage. You don't attempt to repair your image if no one is aware of how marred your image is.

A lot of people are against The Fed and are spreading the truth regarding its function and corruption. Bernanke's campaign is a reaction to this and probably Ron Paul's pressuring for the audit of the federal reserve. This shows Bernanke knows people are becoming aware and angry and this is his attempt to go on a crusade to influence the public.

You know you bring up a good point actually. They don't really talk about the FED on the MSM, so if they are getting a bad wrap then people are getting their news from other outlets.

Good catch on the silver lining. Now the question is who is going to be the person to step up and connect everybody together?

Apparently, the rat has been chased into a corner and they will do anything to escape, evade, and survive. Oh, "We are the Fed and we are here to help?" That is about the biggest line of BS I have ever heard. Bernanke better just comply before he is forced to open the books by congress. He knows there is a reckoning in the wind for he and his banker pals and this is a last ditch effort at damage control.

It is only a matter of time before we know exactly what the Fed has been up to for almost a hundred years. This is another glass half-full scheme by the Fed. Lets hope the "Audit the Fed," bill continues on its course to ratification. The time is now for transparency in the Fed. Their parlor tricks must end before they make this country completely insolvent.
