More delusional talk from Patrick Byrne, CEO of POS Overstock.com. From Herb Greenberg at Marketwatch:
Speaking on the Fox Business Channel today to my friend Liz Claman, [Byrne] said:
“I think that there’s been an unhealthy collusion developed between certain short sellers and certain journalists. They center around your competitor, CNBC. I happen to know for a fact that there’s a fax machine in the CNBC offices where hedge funds send instructions and journalists sit around and take instructions.”
Liz quickly responded:
“Well I worked in CNBC and I never saw that fax machine.”
Of course she didn’t, because there is no such fax machine!
