Among the highlights in the full show:
Apple (AAPL) makes a cameo appearance around the 13:30 mark. Fox Business Network's Charlie ("Blood on the Street") Gasparino is explaining to Frontline's Martin Smith that hedge funds, because they trade so frequently, get special treatment on Wall Street.
Gasparino: Banks, because you give them so much trading commissions, tell you about market information before the rest of the world. That's considered legal.
Smith: How in the hell is that legal?
Gasparino: You know, markets are based on rumors all the time. Where do you draw the line between misappropriating, getting someone to tell me what Apple's earnings are, or "my sources in the market are saying Apple's going to knock it out of the park." You know what I'm saying? It's a market. People talk.
Smith, by the way, is everything a tough-minded business reporter should be. The bloviators on cable TV could learn a thing or two.
The consent order is a window into how information gets disseminated on Wall Street.
FORTUNE -- Ten months ago, while Apple's (AAPL) share price was stumbling and starting to falter, Citi's Glen Yeung gave it a good kick.
Citing reports of lower iPhone production at Hon Hai, Citi's newly appointed Apple analyst cut his price target and his rating -- from Buy to Neutral.
"Near-term supply chain order cuts," he wrote in a Dec. 17 note MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 3, 2013 2:50 PM ET
