authors I like

space filling journalism

good reporting

Biased reporting

  • Caroline Winter at Bloomberg Businessweek. Compare the article she wrote on Scott Adams and the rebuttal by Scott Adams where he explains how the writer distorted the facts.

Height of desperation

  • Jared Dillian - https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2017-03-09/does-warren-buffett-not-understand-risk-adjusted-returns - Desperately tries to argue that (1) Investing in hedge funds is better than investing in index (2) How Warren Buffett is wrong about recommending index funds than hedge funds for an average investor. The arguments does not even make any sense. Better to skip articles from this author from now on.

bad advice

  • Leonid Bershidsky - https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2017-11-28/invest-in-bitcoin-even-if-it-s-a-bubble - advices to invest in Bitcoin even though he knows that it is a bubble and a ponzi scheme. Better to avoid any articles from this author from now on.

hyped up
