I cant believe they sent that back to someone who told them they were a reader of Forbes. Wow, trashy as f**k. I didnt read much Forbes prior, but i am actively going to avoid them now. You need to post that response all over social media man.

that's kind of crazy that they'd do that to a reader.

 

I can understand a curt "Thank you for your comments, we'll consider them in the future" but that was just beyond dickish.

Monsta, idk if you'd want to do this, but another good way to get the attention of deadspin and other outlet's/reporters/writers is to simply tweet them a direct screenshot of the whole ordeal.. Since you're posting it on a much more open platform and there will be more opportunity for this whole situation to be noticed obviously. Just my 2 cents.

Is there any way to troll Forbes as epically as we did Dameshek?

You know Forbes will say that that twitter account was hacked and no one associated with Forbes sent you that tweet.

 

Or is the guy some how related to this Fox News reporter?

Well so much for thinking Forbes is a serious magazine. That asshat must be a Harvard grad. Go leverage up our investments x18, fail and squeal for a bailout!

Apparently, Forbes has some pretty lax journalistic standards now.

In addition to the piece on Cam, one of their political reporters just wrote an article about Venezuela that was favorable to the sitting government. The same government that has done everything in their power to silence the opposition press, that openly steals elections, that is one of the most corrupt on the face of the earth, etc. This of course generated a lot of criticism by democratically minded people in South America.

Forbes reaction? They took the article off their website as if to pretend it never existed. So at least in my mind, Forbes no longer has any credibility. Fug them and their personal agendas.


New York City is very close to electing a Sandinista as their next mayor.

Wow. I didn't know that.

 

However, at least in the US there are enough checks and balances to minimize the impact of extremists. That is not the case in many parts of the world.
