Lazy Mike Francesa Takes Annual 10 Week Summer Vacations But Calls Out Mets Daniel Murphy For Taking 3 Days Off for Paternity Leave, Francesa Calls it a Scam Except that Francesa is a Lazy Scam.
Mike Francesa, the man who replays interviews so he can leave work early, the man who takes off for 10 weeks in the summer so he can gamble on his horses at Saratoga, suddenly this lazy scam acts like he is a hard worder as he criticizes Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy for taking three days off to tend to his wife’s pregancy.
Sorry Mike, this bullshit does not fly, go back to reading your Ipad and opening up your mail while taking a mongo sports call.

Bill O’Reilly Laments & Criticizes Media’s Speculation/Speculative Reporting of Malaysia Flight 370 Then Hands off to Megyn Kelly For 1 Hour Of Flight 370 Speculation and Sean Hannity Combines Flight 370 Speculation with his Football Tossing for another hour.
Bill O’Reilly criticizes another network for presenting an hour of speculative BS but Megyn Kelly follows with one hour of speculative BS as she stands in front of a group of pilots, one former Navy Seal, and one former member of the CIA named Buck Sexton, there has to be a reason this non informed Red Eye unfunny frequent guest is a Former member of the CIA. But don’t despair folks, the former Navy Seal was able to deliver such gems as “I sit here and it is very telling that this group of pilots are all shaking their heads yes in unison as you talk Megyn, this tells me so much”.
Of course War69.com is the real sucker in all of this for watching more than one minute of the Flight 370 media speculative bubble.
One needed memo to the ghoulish media: Stop filming the family members gathered in the airport and at the nearby hotel. First we had Ann Curry in Denver, Colorado, patrolling the hospital floors, looking for victims in hospital beds who had survived the movie theatre shooting, where is Ann, has anybody seen her, is she in Syria rehabilitating her image, oh that’s right, the quack Nancy Snyderman is there trying to rehabilitate her image after promoting the true quack Dr. Eric Braverman.
Since Anne Curry is not busy, no hospital beds to mine, I think NBC needs to send her to China to mine the minds of the FLIGHT 370 families because we all know how newsworthy it is to film those people crying.
These 3 letter whore media outlets love the Flight 370 disaster, I actually saw a few of them smiling as they declared this is the biggest airplane mystery of all time, whooh hoo, and these are the biggest media sicko whores of all time.
Does The Phony/Fraudulent/Bogus/BS Richard Engel Sochi Computer Hacking Story Taint Engel’s Journalistic Integrity?
War69.com had the utmost respect for NBC’s Chief Foreign Correspondent, his reporting seemed to be unbiased, courageous, and filled with intelligent and cogent commentary. Is all of that lost because of one fraudulent story on computer hacking? Probably not but until Richard Engel apologizes and explains why he lied and make no mistake he lied, fair minded people will always have a scintilla of doubt when Richard Engel reports on stories in the future.
On February 4, 2014 it was clear to any tyro tech watcher that Richard Engel was lying when he declared that his computer and cell phone were hacked immediately upon entering Sochi. As you watched the story the questions started, did he click a link in his email, did he visit a tainted web site, but you got no answers and it made zero sense and it was obviously deliberate to juice up the story and get ratings.
But we thought Richard Engel was all about getting to the truth not about misleading headlines and shady reporting. So it makes one wonder, with a computer story it is not easy to lie and make up facts but when you are covering political stories, revolutions, ideas, war, human rights, it is very easy to obscure, shade, manipulate the truth.
Did Richard Engel employ the same tricks he used in Sochi during his coverage of the Arab Spring, particularly his reporting in Egypt and Libya?
Until he explains his Sochi hacking lies, questions will always loom about the entire scope of his journalistic career.
On Charlie Rose he did make one admission of obscurity in regard to Egypt. He told Charlie Rose that there were many anti-Semitic statements from the Cairo protesters and there were many instances of anti-Semitic graffiti. Yet on NBC news or during any of his reporting Richard Engel never mentioned this fact once.
Engel during the entire Cairo coverage never mentioned any anti-American or anti-Israeli sentiments coming from the protesters, he even went out of his way to feature protesters who declared this had nothing to do with America.
But after returning to New York from his coverage of the Libyan revolution, Richard Engel decided to admit the truth and reveal that the Arab spring was partly anti-American and anti-Semitic in nature.
In 2014 we have the same problem as we had in 1914 or any year, the truth is difficult to find. And now that we have idiots who think Twitter is an actual news source, the lies fly to your screen in miliseconds.
Arthur Chu’s Advice For Success, “Play The Role of a Champion”, Works on Jeopardy and in any Endeavor.
Simple advice but if employed with full confidence not only can it work on Jeopardy but it can propel a person to new heights in any endeavor:
The only reason I had that amount of success was that I had anticipated it would be like that and I had drilled myself to be unemotional, to be completely focused on the game, rehearsing game play over and over again in my head because I was focused on winning the money. I put myself in a certain mode. I think I mentioned that I have some experience as an actor, and I was like, “I’m going to be playing a role and that role is of an unstoppable Jeopardy! champion.” An unstoppable Jeopardy! champion would look a certain way and talk a certain way. He’d be hyper-focused on the board. He wouldn’t react emotionally to any setbacks. He’d lean forward and be tense. And that’s almost a character I was playing on the show.
David Kaiser Lies About Obama Civilian Defense Force In NY Times Op-Ed Piece Denying Authorship of Urban Legend “Something Of Historic Proportions” Blog Post.
Does a faux intellectual deserve to have his name attached to a half baked anti-Obama blog post when the intellectual in question lies about a factual piece contained in the propaganda laced attack against Obama?
Does anyone understand my previous paragraph, good because I agree it needs to be written in a simpler fashion.
What you have is a so called intellectual named David Kaiser, oh he is a history professor as well, which explains his lack of research and intellectual integrity, hey we get it, the anti Obama blog post that somebody claimed was written by Kaiser is full of lies and crackpot theories but there is a possibility of truth contained within, yet Kaiser assumed it is all lies and so we ask again, does this professor deserve to have his name associated with such anti Obama rhetoric when he feels the need to lie about Obama’s election year pledge to build a civilian national security force that is bigger than our military.
It is not like Obama actually said this:
Obama, “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve our national security objectives that we set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.
The above can’t be true, it can’t be true because history professor David Kaiser said it was not true:
David Kaiser, “piled on top of outlandish claims like the one that Mr. Obama promised to “create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders.””
The problem is Mr. Kaiser that Obama said exactly that, technically he called for the civilian national defense force to have the same funding as our military but in context that part of the inane anti Obama blog post was truthful, we find it funny that even when refuting authorship of such a crazy urban legend blog post, Mr. Kaiser and the NY Times felt the need to lie about what Obama actually said and by the way not one person in the media asked him what he intended to do with this civilian national security force.
It would be crazy if we had proof of Obama saying this, like on Youtube
War69.com does not believe in the conspiracy theorists, we think the millionaire Alex Jones is great at creating millions of dollars for himself and lying and lying and lying some more while none of his fear mongering comes true. We believe the right wing reactonaries like Mark Levin use the above Obama quote to stir up their Marxist fantasies about Obama.
The more likely truth is that Obama was talking bullcrap, he did not know what he was saying, he thought he was trying to combine patriotism with his liberal minded big government ideas of service, some sort of FDR New Deal military version of the Civilian Defense Corps. Basically he was pandering to a military crowd without realizing the kind of fear such talk could foment. Here we are 6 years later and Obama has not even spoken about such a force, not even taken one step to create such a force, of course the media could have asked him about it to expose his political naivete but this is not the main issue.
The main issue is that David Kaiser and the NY Times feel they have to lie about this and pretend Obama never even said it. Too funny.
Paul Pabst, CNN, TMZ, Lead The Media Vultures/Ghouls/Smiling Paparrazzi That Invoke Their Hollow Souls Onto The Death of Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Damn this media centric world has turned into a hollow shell led by hollow people and the scum papparazzi or is it paparazzi, who knows but certainly they have won, are they not basically in charge. I applaud Alec Baldwin for cursing them out, including that pseudo Fox reporter who now stands outside the apartment of Philip Seymour Hoffman, waiting to exploit grief, to exploit the living and the dead, to exploit us all.
Which brings us to Paul Pabst, CNN, TMZ and the other 3 letter media whores that dot the internet and mainstream media landscape.
Who is Paul Pabst and why is he commenting on the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, is he a friend, a relative, no he’s some media d-bag that inserts himself into the death of an actor, why? I don’t know Paul, you tell us why your street interaction is important, is this a murder mystery, do we all not know how it ends, so tell us Mr. Pabst, what relevance does this have with anything:
Hoffman is spotted walking along Greenwich Street by Paul Pabst, executive producer of the syndicated “Dan Patrick Show.” Pabst is with his wife and his sister, who plucks up the courage to say hi to Hoffman. The actor — bundled up in “a big, puffy coat” — appears surprised a stranger recognized him, Pabst says on his show. But he still responds, giving Pabst’s sister “a half high-five” before continuing on his way. Pabst says his sister remarks that Hoffman seemed “out of it.”
Mr. Pabst, please shut up, you said hello to an actor on the street, who cares, can you just shut your mouth, why are you contributing nonsense to a tragic story.
But this is what rules the day, somebody snaps an innocuous picture of an actor drinking at a bar or sleeping on a flight to NYC, normally it would not be worth much, it would simply be an invasion of privacy that every clown with a cellphone believes they have the right to invade. But now that actor has died, this is your big chance, how many thousands of dollars will the 3 letter whore pay for these pictures which have zero relevance to the story.
But you don’t need the money, right, you can’t be destitute if you are flying to NYC or hanging out in a bar in Atlanta or the producer of some bullshiite radio show but you do it anyway because this is the culture, the culture of zero respect, the culture of the smiling paparazzi that sit oustide the apartments of tragedy. All one has to do is see their smiling faces and know this is the new media landscape, this is Media 2.0 or 3.0. or F*CK.0
What does it matter we say, we are not famous, we are not millionaires, they are in that game not us.
NBC Nightly News with the esteemed Brian Williams ran that TMZ picture, a meaningles picture, yes, which brings it more to the point, what is the point, what is news, what is this new disrespectful culture?
Review: Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee” Should Be Renamed “Comedians Without Scripts Are Not Funny and Very Boring”
This Jerry Seinfeld TV/Internet Venture was a nice experiment, further proving that comedians without scripts are boring and unfunny.
And remember that most of those scripts are written by other writers hired by the frontman.
It is rarely Jay Leno, it is mostly unnamed comedy writer.
Why You Should Never Listen To CNBC, Specifically The CNBC Fast Money Team, Don’t Take Their Stock Advice, Ever, Especially From Guy Adami, Timothy Seymour, & Joshua Brown.
The amount of BS spewed daily on CNBC is comical, it just flows from hour to hour and would be impossible to chronicle all of the bogus predictions, hypocritical statements, outright mistakes, and bullshit, no other word can properly represent these so called financial experts.
For example, just yesterday Jim Cramer is discussing the Sirius XM takeover bid by Liberty media and he has no idea how many shares of Liberty would the Sirius inverstors receive nor did he know anything about the proposal, real good journalism.
But if you followed CNBC the past few months and zeroed in on their advice and knowledge of Twitter TWTR, you would get a pretty good represpentation of why they don’t know anything, nobody knows anything really, in the absense of tangible news these pseudo stock wizards can’t tell you why a stock went up or down and if you follow them long enough you quickly see that their predictions fail at a minimum of 75 percent of the time.
But what is really scary is when you find out they are downgrading a stock because of their personal investments or shorting of said stock.
Take Twitter for example and the CNBC Fast money team, when Twitter was in the 40’s all of the team members aggressively stated the stock was heading down, they said it would definitely be in the low 30’s soon, what happens, it hit 38 for a few minutes and then proceeded to rise every day, from 38 to its peak of 74.
Of course as the stock started climbing on basically zero news, the host of the show asked Guy Adami about it, he said that yeah I believe it will go to 30 but before that happens it will be a little pop to around 49 or 50, he started taking bows as if he got the prediction correct, I don’t think he is still taking those bows. Then we move to Timothy Seymour who says he can’t explain the high 40’s rise and the stock is overvalued and it will be in the 30’s soon.
Now we get to the worst offender, Joshua Brown or Josh Brown, basically repeats the same thing as Seymour, ok, fine, now fast forward about a week, the stock is in the 50’s and rising, all three of these clowns reveal that they were shorting the stock but they did not state that the week before, these financial and stock experts were trying to use CNBC’s Fast Money show to profit from their personal investments, basic scum behavior.
But this is how bad it gets, example Joshua Brown, in one episode he contradicts himself multiple times, last week when asked if the Twitter valuation makes sense and do valuations matter anymore, now at $70 dollars a share suddenly it does, he states if that is the valuation then that is the correct valuation and further that valuations really don’t matter anymore. Are you following that, valuations don’t matter but Twitter’s valuation is correct, if investors are willing to pay 74 dollars a share then it it is worth 74 dollars a share. But when Twitter was 40 dollars a share Josh Brown was telling you it was overvalued and it was going to the low 30’s. Further he says a valuation only matters when a company gets good news and the stock goes down, are you still following, probably not because clearly Josh Brown is full of garbage.
But it gets better, a few minutes later he says his short share pick is Facebook FB, why, because the company is overvalued, suddenly valuations matter once again as Joshua Brown uses CNBC to profit and hope that investors dump Facebook while he shorts it. Funny that FB was about 54 when he stated this and now it is close to 58 but that does not matter, what matters is that these financial and stock experts that you see on CNBC and Fox Business are full of crap. Never listen to them.
Dennis Rodman Is Now Tokyo Rose, Spineless Former NBA Punk Provides Cover for Murder and Starvation, he is now Kim Jong-Un’s Propagandistic Bitch & Why Is Former Knicks Loser Charles Smith In North Korea.
Nothing else needs to be written.
Can anyone answer why the former Knicks loser Charles Smith (the man who cost the Knicks a trip to the 1993 NBA Finals, dunk the ball you loser) is acting as Dennis Rodman’s minister of information, these clowns look like they are assembled for a Public Enemy album cover. Charles Smith was considered one of the wimpiest players in the NBA and now he is serving as Kim Jong-Un’s Number 2 Bitch.
Forbes Mike Ozanian Clueless/Ignorant/Dumb NBA Article, Claims MSG Investors Want Carmelo Anthony To Leave the Knicks, Ozanian doesn’t Understand Money or Sports.
Not only does Mike Ozanian, a Forbes writer, not know anything about basketball, his investing sense is highly flawed as well:
Investors in the Madison Square Garden Company have a message for Anthony: Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
Forget about the fact that 99 percent of business writers and business experts that appear on channels like CNBC have no clue why a particular stock rises or falls, just listen to any of them for a few days and you will see the hypocritical statements pile up, but this guy, Mike Ozanian, clearly is talking out of his a**.
His theory is that because the share price of MSG is down 5 percent since November 1st while the S&P 500 is up 5 percent, MSG investors are telling Carmelo Anthony they are glad he is leaving. But logical common sense would tell you that is signaling the exact opposite, investors are fleeing MSG stock because they know the team’s star attraction is leaving, not that they want him to leave, this all assumes Ozanian’s fantasy that investors know Anthony is leaving. Of course both reasons are not correct, nobody knows why the stock is down 5 percent, all you can look at is past history and future projections and both point to a Knicks team not making the playoffs and that is the time that MSG makes a ton of money.
But Mr. Ozanian further reveals his ignorance in a comment he left on the site in response to another commenter:
Ozanian, “I don’t think players opt out unless they would consider leaving their current team. And to say you would opt out prior to the start of a season in which you you are suppose to lead your team to title contention is not the mark of a leader. Instead, you realize that extra cap space could be used to bring in a missing piece for a championship. Bad start? Maybe. But how has Anthony helped to straighten out the ship? So in reality this is probably only the second worst article you have read.”
Almost every NBA player opts out in similar circumstances, why, because if Carmelo Anthony does not opt out and he has a career ending injury, that’s it, he would be finished, no chance to earn another 4 year contract. It does not mean he is considering leaving the team.
Also this Ozanian writer does not understand the salary cap and he bills himself as an expert on the intersection of sports and money (business). If Carmelo Anthony were not to opt out and play in his final contract year, that money counts against the cap, the 23.5 million that Anthony would make counts against the salary cap, further even if you subtracted that salary in Ozanian’s fantasy world, the Knicks would still be over the cap.
Update: Mike Ozanian can’t address his money and sports mistakes, instead all he offers are junior high school like sarcastic replies in addressing an internet commenter citing this blog post, the question remains is Mike Ozanian that stupid or does he have an agenda:
Commenter 1: Mr. Bourne,
Very cogent remarks, I direct all to http://www.MikeFrancesa.com/wordpress I think that blog correctly display’s Mr. Ozanian’s ignorance when it comes to sports and money.
If investors know that Anthony is leaving and they are leaving the stock because of that knowledge, they are voicing their displeasure at MSG management, they are not cheering the move, this is Finance 101, if they were happy with the move they would be buying MSG stock, not selling it.
This kind of shoddy financial reporting displays what is wrong with business reporting. The truth is nobody knows why a stock goes up or down, however the only thing an investor has knowledge of is past performance and future projections, MSG makes a high percentage of their profits if the Knicks make the playoffs, currently it is looking shaky in that regard, that sounds like a more logical reason for the stock to go down 5 percent.
Commenter 1:Mr. Ozanian,
I’m sorry and with all due respect but for someone who labels himself an expert on sports and money you are showing yourself to be a tyro on both subjects.
In the comments section you said that by opting out of his contract Melo is showing that he is considering leaving his team otherwise according to you there would be no reason to opt out. But most players who are at the peak of their earning power choose to opt out in similar circumstances because if Melo does not opt out and he has a career ending injury in the last year of his contract, he is finished, it makes zero sense to play the additional year when you are at the top of your earnings potential.
Secondly you stated that Melo should show team leadership, he should not opt out and use that cap savings to sign another player but sir you don’t understand how the salary cap works, if Melo does not opt out he will earn 23.5 million dollars in his final year, all of that money counts against the cap, further even if somehow that money did not count against the cap the Knicks would still be over the salary cap for the year 2014-2015.
Finally, let’s pretend that the MSG investors have inside information and they know that Melo is leaving, wouldn’t common sense dictate that they are exiting the stock to voice their displeasure at him leaving, knowing that the team’s value will decrease, how does it show that they are happy he is leaving, if they were happy they would stand strong and prop up their investments.
Mike Ozanian’s lame response: Ozanian, “You say nobody knows why a stock goes up or down, then you give a reason why stock is going down. Makes sense to me.”
Commenter 1:Mr. Ozanian, do you want to address your two glaring mistakes, not understanding the NBA salary cap rules and not understanding how an NBA contract works?
Also can you explain why an investor of MSG stock would sell their shares if they were happy that Melo was leaving the Knicks.
Again you are the business writer but fail to understand basic sports and business concepts. If Mark Zuckerberg announced or hinted he would be stepping down as CEO of Facebook and the stock went down in share price, would that be a signal that investors were happy he was leaving?
Since you seem to know what makes sense and what does not make sense, please address the real issues and your glaring journalistic mistakes.
I will clarify my remarks, in the absense of tangible news nobody can tell you why a stock has gone up or down, you can offer theories, certainly but that is all you have is a theory. If Carmelo Anthony announced tomorrow that he was leaving the Knicks and the stock plunged, certainly we would have a reason why most investors have fled the stock and it would not be because they were celebrating, it would be because they did not think MSG would be rising in value now that their top attraction was leaving.
So again please address why you believe an investor sells a stock when they are happy about a particular news event related to the company?? That is the basic premise of your article and it goes against any basic common business sense.
Either you are a financial writer who is writing for Forbes with a very limited knowledge of business and sports or you have an agenda. Can you please explain because I’m sure there are some people that actually might invest based on your wisdom or lack thereof.
When a financial writer at a prestigious magazine like Forbes.com can present such shoddy and disengenous articles it makes you wonder, is the said writer that dumb or does he just lack any integrity and then you wonder why any sane person would listen to or act on the financial advice of these so called business experts.
