Mortgage Meltdown

A broadcast and web package from Tisha Thompson of WMAR-Baltimore uncovers the dirt on home mortgage lending in Maryland. The issue of race and credit is explored as a foreclosure boom is forecast due to an increase the number of subprime loans issued. Included are maps of foreclosure "hotspots" and a glossary of lending terms.

IRE and NICAR assisted with the mapping for this story.
