Beginning with the collapse of Bear Stearns, "Inside The Meltdown"
(2009) describes financial events that gripped Wall Street and the U.S.
federal government, in 2008. The solvency of even bigger institutions
is also examined, including Fannie May, Freddie Mac, Lehman Brothers,
and AIG. Government, Wall Street, and media insiders give their views
on what happened. Interviewees include: Barney Frank, Chairman of the
House Financial Services Committee, David Faber, anchor of CNBC,
several executives associated with Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers,
financial writers for the N.Y. Times, an NYU economist, and others.
Throughout the one-hour documentary, two men are highlighted as having
played critical roles in this financial crisis: Treasury Secretary
Henry Paulson, and Fed. Chairman Ben Bernanke. While Frontline's
overall description of events is factual, its analysis is shallow and
superficial. One could get comparable information simply by reading
But much worse is the slant of Frontline's overall presentation.
Frontline's analysis conveys the impression that these kinds of
financial crises occur from time to time. No one is to blame. And thank
goodness we had great leaders like Paulson and Bernanke to see us
through this meltdown.
Almost nothing is mentioned in the program about Paulson's connection
to Lehman Brothers' rival Goldman Sachs. No discussion is given to
matters related to "fraud" or "corruption". There's not a word about
how the bailout money was spent. All of those interviewed, without
exception, are institutional "insiders" who, it could be argued, have a
vested interest in whitewashing the whole sorry episode. No critique of
these insiders' views or counter argument is given ... at all.
The premise inherent in this Frontline documentary is that we can trust
these insider experts. But can we? I have no confidence in this
documentary because it merely regurgitates bland, politically correct
explanations to foster an "all is well" mentality. Or to put it more
bluntly, "Inside The Meltdown" is insider propaganda meant to quell
About the best that I can say for this program is that narrator Will
Lyman has a terrific voice. He lends credibility to whatever he is
narrating, regardless of the program script. Otherwise, if you want
substantive information about the "meltdown", or if you would like a
factual presentation from a more critical point of view, you will need
to look elsewhere.
