    Let me summarize: do due diligence: don't invest blindly. It sucks to be a journalist now. Cyber security and nuclear weapons could be a dangerous mix with bad outcomes. This was among the few blondi

    I gave it a thumbs down because RVTV has limited resources and I didn't feel this content fits my very subjective view of RVTV's "mission". I'd be more interested in a journalist's findings of how the plunge protection team, the Fed, etc. directly manipulate the markets. It's frequently alleged that they do.

    Seemed very pertinent. Not sure why all the thumbs down...

    Nice add. Too many closed minds on this. I will share this with my 25 yr old son who is trying to make it in journalism.

    Cybersecurity section is v thoughtful. Love seeing more attention on cyber. Makes sense why the U.S. government is increasing it annual cybersecurity budget 35% in 2017 to $19 billion from $16 billion in 2016 (as one example among many other industries). Still highly investable theme

    I do not get the many thumbs down here. Because of it, I first expected a Carnegie propaganda lesson, but he is enormously thoughtful on issues that should concern us all, investors included. Even stopped double-tasking and will listen to it again the next days.

    Well, that was certainly an interesting change of pace ! The gentleman had a very unusual background and is obviously very intelligent, his take on journalism (past and present) was very insightful. With all his knowledge of business/finance/geo-political issues and his background I'm sure he has a few bylines under the heading of Tyler Durden (that he probably just does for fun!). Very interesting diversion from our usual fare RVTV, keep up the great work!

    Very interesting. There are definitely parallels between journalism and private asset due diligence.
