If you had a more organized mind you'd understand these things instead of turning to name calling and insults.

All hail Lort.

Re: Something unexplained

He called the FBI about the death threat email and the bullet in the mail box. Took his computer to investigate the email.

Re: Something unexplained

The FBI has to ask questions that make a victim feel like a suspect, but Wigand was in an anxious state and he was giving poor answers, making the situation worse. He touched the bullet so it has his prints on it. How can the FBI check it now? He has a gun of the same caliber as the bullet. Now it could seem like he planted the bullet on his own. It's easier now to track threatening emails, but I guess back then, you really had to turn your computer over to the authorities so they could have a capable computer expert check it at the FBI offices. This isn't Criminal Minds where you make a phone call and your in-house hacker can find the bad guy over the Internet.

Since The Insider is inspired by true events, we're seeing what Michael Mann wants us to see, with lots of dramatization. And at this point of the movie, Wigand is shown increasingly under duress.





The world moves for love. It kneels before it in awe.

Re: Something unexplained

This scene is quite disturbing but illustrates how much influence big tobacco had back in the day. The politicians have added an incentive for the regional agents to antagonize Wigand. After the fiasco, Wigand calls Bergman who seems to immediately know what is going on. Bergman calls his contact at the bureau to tell him his agents are acting improperly and why. His contact at the FBI always says enough to keep Bergman at a safe distance.
