Filmmaker Spike Lee appeared on MSNBC's "Countdown" Tuesday night to discuss his new documentary on Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf oil spill and their effects on New Orleans. Unsurprisingly, he had some sharp critiques at the ready.
Lee said that American greed stood to bring down the country: "We have people in office appointed and voted in and people in big business positions who only care about the dollar bill, and there are people [who] get harmed, people [who] die. They say that's the cost of doing business."
Lee also said that he thinks the U.S. government has been a puppet for BP.
