Default FEAR & UNbalanced: Confessions of a 14-Year Fox News Hitman

A good read from one of them:

Since his death many folks have asked me about my 14 years at Fox News and my experiences with Roger Ailes. I can tell you he was one of the top 5 best public speakers I’ve ever heard. I can tell you like anyone who knew him he was funny as hell and the MOST competitive person I ever met in business. He also prized loyalty above all else and repaid that loyalty in spades countless times.

From this guy?...

Fox Business Fires Tobin Smith Over Off-Air Stock Tout That Netted His Company $50K

Quote:
Fox Business Network had some business advice for Tobin Smith today: Find work elsewhere. A Fox network spokesman confirmed to Business Insider that Smiths’ contract had been terminated under the network’s contributor policy, which states that “no contributor to FBN, nor his/her firm, and/or family members are allowed to accept financial consideration of any kind whatsoever to issue research, advertisements, or to otherwise promote individual stocks or securities.” The Wall Street Journal’s MarketWatch reported earlier in the day that the investment manager and author, who has been a familiar face on Fox News, was in hot water over “sponsored investment research.” His NBT Equities Research collects checks to tout the stocks of small companies via such paid research, which the businesses count on to boost their share price and volume.
And he settled last year for a quarter of a million dollars...

SEC Says Fox News Commentator Committed Stock Fraud

Quote:
Tobin Smith, a former Fox News commentator, will pay nearly $258,000 to settle Securities and Exchange Commission charges that he fraudulently promoted a penny stock to investors, the regulator said on Tuesday.

The SEC said Smith and his investment research firm NBT Group Inc agreed in May 2012 to tout publicly traded IceWEB Inc, as part of a scheme by the data storage company’s chief executive to inflate its trading volume and stock price.

Smith and NBT did not fully disclose their compensation and incentive fees to investors, and made false and misleading statements intended to boost IceWEB’s stock price, including that it was the “perfect” technology stock and that Facebook Inc was a customer, the SEC said.
Sounds like someone we should really believe...

Another pathetic attempt at distraction from the King of the Ignore List. It is easy to see why he hides behind his self imposed wall of ignorance, When his smear of FNC is exposed, it is look over here attack Trump.
