  •  And you're fine with having nothing (6+ / 0-)

    whatsoever to base that on? You realize this guy has no more access than you, right? And no institutional backing other than you have, right? And you want to burn him like a witch for talking on TV?

    I think the guy's very frank and (to me) unsurprising, if a bit stupid, remarks should be welcomed by everyone.

    •  The BBC put him on. Is the BBC trying to fool us? (0+ / 0-)

      I listen to wiseguy traders on cable/internet every day
      They all talk like that( unapologetic assholes) because they don't anyone will come down on them because they're rich.
      And you find that's refreshing?

      •  I find it refreshing the BBC got caught (0+ / 0-)

        putting someone on the air without sourcing them properly.  A little more investigation into this guy ahead of time and he would never have made it onto the air.

        I love the BBC, but they're not infallible and this whole episode called it out in a major way.
