Maybe others will catch on.....
<< The story of Fairfax Financial vs almost every single US-based hedge fund is nothing new. The company has long been embroiled in litigation
against a bevy of hedge funds, including SAC Capital, Exis Capital, Third Point, Kynikos, and Institutional Credit Partners, contending that ever since the start of 2002 it was the repeated target of bear raids, which involved not just a cabal of bearish hedge fund managers who would allegedly (although we now have evidence) spread rumors, innuendos, and outright lies about the company in the hope of bringing the price down (whether through naked shorts or otherwise is irrelevant), but also sellside research analysts, and of course media lackeys, willing to pander to the hedge fund "masters of the universe" in hopes of the occasional bone thrown their way. The reason Zero Hedge had largely ignored this story over the years is that its narrative truly reads like something out of a conspiracy theorist's wet dream: the allegations previously presented by the mainstream media implied such a level of collective deviousness and manipulation, that it would bring about the immediate ridicule of anyone who dared to bring them up in polite society. This is no longer case.>>
