The Informant

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

Former New York Times investigative reporter Kurt Eichenwald tells the true story of Mark Whitacre, a high-ranking executive at agribusiness giant Archer Daniel Midland (ADM), who blew the whistle on that company’s illegal price-fixing practices in the early 1990s and became an FBI informant. A major motion picture starring Matt Damon and directed by Steven Soderbergh based on The Informant will soon be released.

Granted this is not likely the subject of Mr. Lopate's interview with Mr. Eichenwald; still given his background investigating big business and given his own experience in college and since with epilepsy, does Mr. Eichenwald have any thoughts on the health insurance industry and health care reform?
