What if they only disclosed the information to ten newspapers, and they’re not the ones that I read? It’s impossible to make sure everyone hears the news at the same time, so why discriminate against one news channel?

FD means equal access to everyone, it doesn’t mean you must make the horse drink.

When an institutional investor gets access to a site before hobbyist investors, is that an injustice too?

Hastings was foolish to post this. But it was in a public forum and if investors simply don’t look there it’s really their fault. They have the technological capability of doing so.
