The New York Times published an article, “Holding Off Disaster: The Race to Save Lehman,” which was adapted from Andrew Ross Sorkin's book, “Too Big to Fail: How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System – And Themselves.” The article provided a narrative of Lehman's collapse, highlighting Rodge Cohen's role in the course of events. The article noted Mr. Cohen's participation in discussions with Lehman Brothers and Bank of America about a possible deal to help save Lehman, which ultimately fell short.
