Tucker Carlson strappa Sorkin della CNBC definendolo "scagnozzo di hedge fund professionale’ dopo che Robinhood limita il commercio

Tucker Carlson rips CNBC's Sorkin as 'professional hedge fund shill' after Robinhood restricts trading

Presentatore di Fox News Tucker Carlson slammed CNBC anchor Andrew Ross Sorkin as a “scellino professionale di hedge fund” on Thursday after Sorkin appeared to defend hedge funds and question the motivations of Reddit small investors on the air.

Speaking on CNBC, Sorkin said he was concernedthat this is a pump-and-dump scheme that effectively is being cloaked as Mother Teresa has arrived on the scene.

I think there are real underlying issues with the system that need to be resolved. I do not want to protect the system. I love watching the little guy beat the big guy as much as anybody. But what I wonder is whether these folks trying to ‘stick it to the manare ultimately going to be sticking it to themselves,” Lui continuò.

Carlson sarcastically pondered where Sorkin wasthe last dozen years as the central bank shoveled trillions to Wall Streetand mocked his argument, asserting that for Sorkin the issue withhumiliatinghedge funds is that itonly hurts the people that do it.

Carlson continued to impersonate Sorkin, telling the Reddit investors tostop this nonsense immediately.

The Fox News host’s comments come on the heels of a bipartisan backlash against Wall Street after they lost billions of dollars following a coordinated effort by a group of independent investors on Reddit to buy shares of GameStop in an effort to counter short calls made by hedge funds. Shortly thereafter, GameStop’s stock surged over 1,000%.

In risposta, the investment application Robinhood halted the purchases of Gamestop as asecurity measuredue to marketvolatility.” Ancora, critics argue that Robinhood’s actions may have been illegal market manipulation and a direct response to Wall Street’s losses.

In his opening monologue, Carlson said the situation is another reason why many Americans feel Wall Street and the stock market is arigged gameto benefit the wealthiest.

So much for the free market you’re always hearing about. There’s nothing free about it. Turns out what Wall Street really hates is outsider trading, the idea that people from outside their world might be getting rich. That’s the one thing they can’t abide,” Egli ha detto.
