Man this is some good reading no matter what you think about Bloomberg or Zero Hedge.

First is Bloomberg's exposé from a departed ZH writer and then Zero Hedge's response with copies of crazy texts from the deranged and disturbed writer. Good stuff.

I was disappointed there wasn't more to the Bloomberg article.

They both look bad for using confidential communications to make charges and countercharges.

Wall Street's version of mud wrestling I suppose.

Along with CNBC, both aggregate news so they're useful. News searches require you already know what new topic you're looking for. Problem with zerohedge is too many ads, blogger articles with skewed viewpoints, more skewed articles on economic indicators, and user comments are garbage. Positive is they aggregate more analysis from brokerage firms and important investors like Gundlach, Gross, etc..

My problem with ZeroHedge is that they get mouse clicks by screaming that the sky is falling. If you actually took financial steps that aligned with what they spew, you'd be slaughtered. Your gold bricks under your mattress would be worth 50 cents on the dollar. You'd miss every bull stock market.

My favorite ZeroHedge routine is to post articles from guest bloggers making ridiculous doomsday claims, with their commentary implying they agree with it, then when it's proven wrong their loyal readers can say woah that wasn't ZeroHedge saying we'd be Zimbabwe is was someone else ZeroHedge wasn't wrong.

That's not at all what Zerohedge is about. Not at all! Spend a little more time reading the comments as well as the articles. Zerohedge doesn't even write many of their own posts.

They just create the headlines and interject their opinion into it.

Yes, that is true, but I don't see that as a problem.

The great thing about ZeroHedge is that they tell the stories that the mainstream media does not dare to tell. Mainstream media does not want to offend politicans, or powerful special interests, Zerohedge doesn't care.

To give an example, after the deal with Turkey mainstream media applauded the deal, or said it is morally wrong. ZeroHedge said this
Turkey Blackmails Europe on Visa-Free Travel
Europe Makes "Deal With The Devil"
Erdogan "Prince Of Europe" Rejects EU Demands To Reform Terrorist Law
