The Experts

You’ll be stunned to learn that “Frontline” … bought and paid for with your tax dollars … and soon your stimulus money … has reportedly put together a documentary on the economic collapse that will air tomorrow night on PBS. The kicker is the expert list. Only two Congress people were interviewed.

Mr. Dodd and Representative Barney Frank, Democrat of Massachusetts,are the only members of Congress interviewed in the piece, which is a weakness. Many voters hold Republicans and Democrats equally responsible for oversight failures. “Frontline” holds these politicians up as reliable, unbiased witnesses, but some viewers may feel they don’t deserve that trust.

These two people are experts all right. They blocked the regulations that the Bush administration proposed for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, not to mention looked the other way as banks like Countrywide made billions in irresponsible mortgage loans to anything that moved, no questions ever asked. Thanks once again to Instapundit.

Here’s the video that PBS won’t air .. for fear of losing their funding.

    Not only will they not air this on the PBS special, but anywhere.  I just find the media bias so unbelievably infuriating and yet they believe there is a need for the "fairness doctrine?"

    Darlene, if there was truly a need for a "fairness" doctrine, it would be to correct the rampant liberal bias in the majority of the media.  The fact that they practically own the media, and still have to attempt to crush the tiny percentage of opposition that exists simply proves that they are afraid of any of the truth getting out in any form, to any degree.
