Inside Job (2010)
Movie has the Crises Backwards
"Inside Job" whitewashes the role of government-sponsored Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the financial debacle. The federal chartered mortgage giants underwrote almost half the bad loans in the sub-prime crisis. This film gives the government a pass except as Gene Epstein said, "...as stooges or agents of the capitalists."
"The financial system corrupted our political system," actor Matt Damon narrates at the end of the film, "and plunged the world economy into crisis." "In fact, the movie has it exactly backwards."
Reviews have neglected to mention the filmmaker's political activism. Ferguson, who in fact is not a journalist and contributed more than $220,000 to the Democratic Party and Democrat candidates. This film is political propaganda masquerading as a serious documentary.
