Michael Moore, whose last film, "SICKO," skewered the nation's privately run health insurance industry with commentary from health insurance administrators and those they "serve," has asked for public participation in his new film. He intends to"expose the biggest swindle in American history" on the part of Wall Street and the financial industry. Moore made the appeal on his web site:
I am in the middle of shooting my next movie and I am looking for a few brave people who work on Wall Street or in the financial industry to come forward and share with me what they know. Based on those who have already contacted me, I believe there are a number of you who know "the real deal" about the abuses that have been happening. You have information that the American people need to hear. I am humbly asking you for a moment of courage, to be a hero and help me expose the biggest swindle in American history.
All correspondence with me will be kept confidential. Your identity will be protected and you will decide to what extent you wish to participate in telling the greatest crime story ever told.
If you have any info that would help, please contact me at my private email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the video above, Democratic Representative Michael Capuano of Massachusetts was among those who were outraged at Wall Street bank executives over the way they used $176 in bailout money. The swindles continue as evidently the money was not used to ease the credit crisis. Capuano's advice to the CEOs: "Start loaning the money that we gave you. Get it on the street. And don't say, 'Oh well, we're not using that money for bonuses.' Come on! Money is all of a sudden not fungible in your entity."
