Don't Expect Any Gray Area (or matter) Here
I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that if you're looking for an insightful, well made account of the causes and results of last year's Enron collapse you're not going to see it in this Sunday's made for TV CBS Movie on the matter. Starring noted geopolitical scholar Mike Farrell among others the movie will likely be a very dumbed down look at the accounting chicanery and corporate malfeasance that made Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling household names. The good guys (whistleblowers, average Joe employees) will be very good and the bad guys (Lay, Skilling, Arthur Anderson accountants) will be very bad with a strong undercurrent of corporate bashing throughout the two-hour movie.
