"House of Cards" about subprime - Feb. 12 on CNBC.... the producer/writer just lost his job
Edited on Tue Feb-10-09 11:16 PM by complain jane
I know the producer of this documentary, James Jacoby, who spent a year of his life tracking people down around the world to interview to try to bring the details of the housing crisis to light.

Most ironic of all- he lost his job right before this doc is going to air. He's just been laid off from CNBC as a result of the economic disaster he worked so hard to expose.

For what it's worth I thought I'd post about it here, he's a good guy, he did a great job on this and he's heartbroken. I'd love to see his hard work do well and for as many people to see it as possible.

Thanks, hope no one finds this post offensive.

Here's the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11li6Iw4TeY

1. People get crazy when it is about money.

3. I'm thinking good thoughts for James
I hope he finds a job very soon.

C'mon, CNBC, you've got to be kidding.

4. CNBC is doing a documentary about housing market called "House of Cards"?

Reality based documentary, that sounds so not like CNBC. Sounds more like must see TV.


So sorry to hear about your documentary producer friend. In MSM documentaries are getting to be almost non-existent.
