Comments on: What will Henry Blodget do with Jeff Bezos’s millions? A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 By: JessieLivermore Wed, 10 Apr 2013 15:29:10 +0000 Henry Bodget was pumping stocks on CNBC, etc then emailing his important clients and telling them that these same stocks were garbage and to sell them when they rallied on his buy recomendation. He was, and still is hyping overpriced amazon as his wall street buddy is Jeff Bezos. Bezos has now rewarded Bloget with a 5 million dollar investment for hyping amazon stock.
Both Bezos and Blodget are wall street crooks who belong behind bars. Boycott amazon and send a message to Bezos that his paying off wall street to prop up his stock price is both illegal and immoral. Boycott amazon and send these two crooks into the gutter where they belong

A few weeks back there was a piece on BI which I thought could be usefully expanded/argued with. So, I offered to do a freelance piece. When discussing pay Blodget told me that the accounting system cannot cope with paying freelancers.

Maybe that’s just a fob off but if it’s true then I do think that spending perhaps $400 on a copy of Sage could be useful to them.

That said, the current state of BI is a big part of the reason why I don’t visit his Blodget’s empire with any real regularity. The incessant but more specifically annoying ads there is precisely the reason.

By: hypermark Fri, 05 Apr 2013 20:47:08 +0000 If I were Blodget, I would invest in figuring out what kind of “native Ad/Media formats” are unique to the BI brand, and build around that.

Otherwise, they are always at cross-purposes with themselves and their audience.

That stated, I CAN see why they are interesting to Bezos. After all, Amazon is the most shining example of a sometimes paradoxical melding of content, commerce, user participation, software platform, ad, web search, direct sell, indirect sell and proprietary device…and living to tell about it.

BI is a brand that embraces the same paradox, which gives Blodget and Bezos some kismet to one another.
