Et tu, Salon?

Just yesterday, I wrote about Salon's latest post on the predatory practices of credit card companies (That wacky bankruptcy bill)-- even when it comes to extending credit to those who've previously filed for bankruptcy.

Today, this came to my attention: the Titanium Visa Card! It even comes with a Fixed APR, which means that the APR is subject to change at the discretion of Chase.

Chase, of course, is one of the most predatory of predatory lenders.

I hate to see that they're contributing to the problem in the name of making some dough, but don't let anyone say that I ignore hypocrisy on either side of the spectrum.

(Thanks to GE, who brings bad things to light.)
