PBS FrontLie presents Alan Greenspan as a wizard behind the curtain who no one else in DC understood, but seemed to know what he was doing so they left him alone. Then comes along one woman who challenges his acumen and blows the whistle on the forthcoming financial crash.

It's a 1-hour video, which can be found at:
http://video.pbs.org/video/1302794657

What is probably the most ridiculous point, found in just the first few minutes of this documentary, is that PBS attempts to sell Greenspan as a Libertarian.

In short, this is more like like watching Entertainment Tonight, it's all about personalities and front-personas. Watergate needed characters too, and they used people like G. Gordon Liddy & Nixon as lightening rods for the public. Same as here. It's the Whistleblower Simulacrum, with focus on individuals rather than the larger system of control.

Whistle blower simulacrum, like the whole Sibel Edmunds deal...

What a waste of time that is.
