The 'Burning Down the House' Video

I can't embed it, but the video giving some of the history of the subprime meltdown along with the government's role in promoting it has been re-cut without the music that Time Warner Group objected to, which resulted in it being pulled from YouTube after 1.2 million views.

There is a bit at the beginning which notes that Google (who owns YouTube) and Time Warner have been major contributors to the Obama campaign. I think that's worth noting, and remembering when it's time to purchase magazine subscriptions or music.

The video is here. Please share this with anyone you talk to who seems particularly ignorant on this subject. If necessary, drag them to a computer and make them watch it. If you don't like the new music, turn off the sound.
