Uncle Sam vs. S&P

The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Joe Magyer and Ron Gross discuss the top business and investing stories.

In this segment: The U.S. Justice Department sued Standard & Poor's Ratings Services over the firm's role in rating mortgage bonds that imploded in the financial crisis. What does the lawsuit mean for investors? What does it mean for S&P parent company McGraw-Hill (NYSE: SPGI  ) ? Will Moody's (NYSE: MCO  ) be next?
