RE who TD is... It's about THE MESSAGE not the messenger. I weep for America because this simple concept is forgotten or ignored.

Does it really matter who TD is?  To be honest I really don't care and his identity doesn't change the truth of the message.  I wish the media would focus more on the message and less on the messenger. But alas I may be asking too much...

Finally a commenter who will understand my name as it is one of HHH's signature tag lines!  "Talk hard; I like that.  I like the idea that a thought can go somewhere uninvited..." Of course the line was inspired by the Eat-me-beat-me Lady.  Talkhard everyone!

TD could be any of the ones who work at ZH.. Next TV call, have another voice do the honors to keep them guessing I think old Max was a little bored on the detailed delivery of the last episode... throw a curve and have a female call in next

It is a hoot, and you certainly have gotten under the skin of 

MSM. Let the ire continue, it's quite an entertaining spectacle. 


On another note, thank god that you revealed there are 40 contributors to ZH. As a financial blogger, I know how hard it is to post 3-4 times a day and work at the same time. I couldn't figure how you guys can rifle off 20 or more a day, and the reading that all that would require. I felt like a mental midget thinking you guys were just one or two folks.Greatly relieved, I feel like less of a mental midget now.  :-)

Nice ZH...stick to what counts...kick ass content and let your content stand for itself.  Those who are looking to identify you are just trying to divert their readers attention away from the fact that their content sucks!

So why did the person identified in one of the stories confirm that he is a contributor? Why not "no comment"? Or is "no comment" seen as a tacit admission anyway?

Of course we cannot be sure whether he acutally does 'contribute'. Since ZH doesn't comment anyone can claim to write or speak for ZH.

I guess if I was barred from the financial industry and probably unemployed or under employed I would go:

"Yeah that's it yeah, I write for Zerohedge..."

Sure would help my income potential a little in the near future as I cash my unemployment check...

Michelle Caruso-Cabrera says anonymity makes it impossible to know whether the content is true.

Just a total logical fallacy. "We need to be able to attack the arguer and not the argument."

Now I understand. This is all about world views. They don't belief in concepts like science. If their high-priest says its true than it must be true. No questioning allowed even if the facts are contrary.

I feel reminded of the middle ages.

The Unknown Comic says MCC should wear a bag over her head and if she was funny we'd laugh. So much for the messenger. The mafia works by the same rules, it's 'who' first, the 'what' we know what we're doing. The truth is for praying for, almost never found on TV with anonymous producers shouting in their ear to stop this and that making sure it doesn't get out.

Chillax.  Of course any and all of us who rely on our anonymity/psuedonymity to tell our side of the story know what's possible, and, likely, in the "long run," inevitable.

If you don't understand that the message is more important than the messenger though, please, do us all a favor and turn back to your TV and enjoy your bubblevision.

We'll be here when you decided you're ready to handle some truthiness in your life.

I hear that ZH is in fact run by the administration; what a better way to control the media than by secretly controlling the opposition. Some even say that he might be Timmy himself using the blog as a way to get back at his step daddy Mr.Goldman-Sachs. 

I also heard that Marla was raised by wolves until she was 9, but that seems improbable.
