HBO announced this month that it had bought the rights to New York Times reporter Andrew Ross Sorkin’s bestseller “Too Big To Fail: The Inside Story Of How Wall Street And Washington Fought To Save The System — And Themselves.”

The proposals already announced do not do enough to protect consumers.
