CNBC's New Documentary 'Filthy Rich'

February 24th, 2012

CNBC aired its new documentary, “Filthy Rich“, for the first time last night. The documentary was the product of a year-long investigation, and featured Task Force Coordinating Committee members Global Witness and Transparency International and Task Force Allied Organization SHERPA. The hour-long special focused on the massive wealth accumulated by kleptocrats like the Obiang ruling family of Equatorial Guinea and the Aliyev ruling family of Azerbaijan and how the United States enables their corruption.

I highly recommend watching the whole documentary. It will re-air this Sunday night at 10 pm EST on CNBC. The Task Force will stay on top of any airings, and send out reminders via Twitter and Facebook whenever the documentary will be on. Sign up to follow-up for further updates.
