Comments on: Madoff pays dividends in book deals http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/01/16/madoff-pays-dividends-in-book-deals/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Dawn C http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/01/16/madoff-pays-dividends-in-book-deals/#comment-356089 Fri, 20 Feb 2009 16:00:21 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=14022#comment-356089 I think that they should take everything that they can get from this man(Madoff) now and in the future to help the people that he scammed. The victims do have some responsiblity in this but he should pay for his actions. Where is a person’s accountability and honest responsiblity, if they aren’t responsible maybe they should be taught responsiblity even at his age. He should be living like some of his victims and see how it is to have to be counting pennys!!!!!

If there’s one person you *wouldn’t* want to pay to write a book about Madoff, it’s surely someone who interviewed him several times and spotted nothing wrong. She’s clearly a far better salesman than she is a journalist….

The only difference is that his victims must live everyday with the losses they have incurred as a result of the confidence they gave him.

The amount of people who are making money on everything from book deals to t-shirts, to cups and mugs to theme songs about Madoff. When I was doing research for a Madoff article (see the link) I found examples of this everywhere. We barely know anything about the case yet there are people writing books with what is “the real truth.”
