Round 29: Countrywide Home Loans vs Dish Network

This is Round 29 in our Worst Company in America contest, Countrywide Home Loans vs Dish Network. Vote which sucks more, inside…

Here’s what our readers said when they nominated these two companies:

“For creating moral hazard and helping to destroy our economy.”
“Poster Child of the subprime meltdown”
“Best Buy has problems, but they’re not scamming people out of their homes. ..The only competition to Countrywide is Blackwater”
“The symbolic damage they’ve done to this country alone oughta be enough.”
“for enabling the credit crisis.”
“Because 12% of your loans being subprime can cause 120% of your troubles (and nearly wreck the American economy in the process)”
“Who else has been so completely destructive to the entire economy”
“for causing this shitty market by preying on the uninformed.”
“what housing bubble?”

Dish Network
