A shout-out to the G-man, who brought this to my attention.
I wrote about Herbalife on Tuesday, after the rumours flew round that it was under federal investigation for being a pyramid scheme. The above conversation happened the week before on CNBC, after Bill Ackman publicly called Herbalife “fraudulent” and announced that his fund had shorted 20% of their stock.
At the same time, the media found “someone close to the matter” who said that Carl Icahn was holding Herbalife shares.
And he totes had a hissy fit on live television.
