It's now been nearly eight months since MF Global declared bankruptcy on Oct. 31, 2011. A lot of questions remain unanswered and, worse, a lot of customers still have not been made whole. As such, a fair amount of the public's attention is still focused on MF Global.
PBS' Frontline looked at the bankruptcy and the events leading up to it in last night's episode. Although they present a lot of facts, just as much is left out or left to the viewer to put together. The focus naturally is on Jon Corzine and his fall from grace. The episode focuses mostly on the time from Corzine becoming CEO to shortly after the bankruptcy and doesn't go into much detail about the ongoing investigations or bankruptcy process.
Naturally, this is a complicated issue and PBS leaves a lot unsaid. What do you think about how they handled the issue? Does this convey the severity of missing customer money? What about CFTC Commissioner Bart Chilton's role in the episode?
