Leaked! Goldman Sachs Makes Documentary About Itself


How accurate will the Ric Burns documentary about Goldman Sachs really be?

Filmmaker Ric Burns, who co-created the PBS series "The Civil War" with his brother Ken, has been hard at work on his next documentary. The subject? Goldman Sachs (GS).

But this isn't going to be some anti-capitalist screed a la Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story. In fact, Goldman Sachs actually hired Ric Burns to make the film, and will retain complete editorial control over the project through its marketing department.

Year-to-date, the stock of Goldman is down 8%. The Financial Select Sector SPDR (XLF), an ETF with holdings including Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Morgan Stanley (MS), and Wells Fargo (WFC) is up 2.4%.

And so, will the film be an accurate portrayal of Goldman's story? Or a propaganda puff-piece?
