‘The Rachel Maddow Show’ on our Loan Modification Investigation

Last night, "The Rachel Maddow Show" featured a segment on the numerous problems with the loan modification program [1]. Guest host Chris Hayes described how it works and declared the program "the biggest disaster of this administration." Hayes interviewed Suzanna Wertheim, a woman ProPublica recently profiled [2], and talked about the "Kafkaesque" runaround she's endured trying to obtain a loan modification.

KPCC's "Patt Morrison" show also had a roundtable discussion about the loan mod program [3], featuring our lead reporter on the investigation, Paul Kiel.

Keep an eye on our site as we share more profiles [4] of frustrated homeowners. And be sure to check out the results of our homeowner questionnaire [5], in which respondents detailed more than a thousand errors by banks and other servicers.
