Very cool. I'll set the DVR.

I'll echo the request to mention the Reds. You could compare what Stanford did to his investors is similar to what the recent Reds leadership is doing to Reds fans. That made it easier for you to spot the scheme.

Make the interviewer mention it in the intro:

"And now we are going to talk about legal expert and longtime Cincinnati Reds fan oneupper about the Stanford case"... :cool:

Don't count on the REDs reference, but I'm already writing an article that equates Allen Stanford to Barry Bonds...to see if I can settle THAT argument once and for all..LOL.

Good luck. I'm off work tomorrow, so I'll check it out. Please continue to make RedsZone proud. Oh, and feel free to give me a shoutout--you can pull it off by claiming that 'camisadelgolf' is Spanish for 'deceit'. Actually, there might be some truth to that . . .

Whoah...I just remembered, I think one of the CNBC anchors is a Reds fan...he wore a jersey on opening day a few years back...thats your in.

I'll try to research.

Go down to the Johnny Bench link...the anchor is Joe Kernan!

He's pretty cool on air...if you get a shot before the interview mention the Reds to him and you're in like flint. :beerme:

Very nice interview and I see you did work in some Reds references. I counted at least three times that you said Red Flag, so well done.

You unraveled a web of financial deceit and perhaps saved countless people from losing their life savings?

Yea, yea. That's great and all, I guess. Did you get the interviewers phone number? That's the key question here!

(kidding around aside, way to go. That must be very rewarding).

Thanks guys. You don't actually see these people. You talk at a camera. It could be Frankenstein's grandmother for all I knew. Kind of unreal.

The guy I want is Stewart. Everyone knows. It's a running joke.

I'm glad that interview was only 3 minutes. The market dropped 28 pts while you were on the air. :D

An individual on the air on CNBC probably has the most influence over the world at certain moments at time over anyone. I can't believe some fool hasn't tried to prankishly/terroristly cause mass hysteria with an untimely falsehood/claim on air...CNBC must really do good due diligence on its guests.

That I didn't just TELL my friend. I PUBLISHED my findings in an economics Journal. Quite a difference, I'd say. :rolleyes:

"Duck Tales" is available on my blog BTW. It makes an entertaining read, or so I'm told. Only five pages.

Now is there anything you can do about the Reds' finances? Or is that off topic in this forum?

Ask Patrick Byrne about this. Actually, I'm interested in hearing (nice job, btw) oneupper's take on the Patrick Byrne accusations.

You mean the guy who claims short sellers ruined his crappy company? Or do I have the wrong Patrick Byrne?

Oh...and for due dilligence on guests. How soon can you make it? was pretty much it for me. LOL

That's him. He seems a bit of obsessed. But OTOH Cramer has admitted to spreading lies about companies to short them.

Cramer gives himself too much credit. And Byrne probably attracted more short sellers by obsessing about it. I'll admit to have shorted OSTK, before it became scarce (could hardly find shares to borrow later on). But it was more about the company's bloated valuation and consistent losses than about "market manipulation" (at least in my case..LOL). I'd believe that most of the OSTK shorters were thinking the same way: overvalued piece of crap...short it.

Can these things feed on themselves? Sure, but there has to be at least a smidgeon of validity to the claims for it to catch on. And i'ts not an easy game. OSTK has had a ton of 'snapback" rallies (short-covering?).

So, no...I don't think someone can go on CNBC and move the market. Heck, Greenspan was telling us about irrational exuberance in 1996. It took a while for that concept to set in...LOL.

Are we off topic yet?
