Zerohedge disgruntled employee talks to Bloomberg

Quote :
Colin Lokey, also known as "Tyler Durden," is breaking the first rule of Fight Club: You do not talk about Fight Club. He’s also breaking the second rule of Fight Club. (See the first rule.)

After more than a year writing for the financial website Zero Hedge under the nom de doom of the cult classic’s anarchic hero, Lokey’s going public. In doing so, he’s answering a question that has bedeviled Wall Street since the site sprang up seven years ago: Just who is Tyler Durden, anyway?

The answer, it turns out, is three people. Following an acrimonious departure this month, in which two-thirds of the trio traded allegations of hypocrisy and mental instability, Lokey, 32, decided to unmask himself and his fellow Durdens.

Lokey said the other two men are Daniel Ivandjiiski, 37, the Bulgarian-born former analyst long reputed to be behind the site, and Tim Backshall, 45, a well-known credit derivatives strategist. ...

amazing if there was only 3 main writers with a few regular guest contributors.

I mean some days the articles were just pouring out. It was almost impossible to keep up.

And with the amount of research / checking / verifying that appeared to have been done, it just doesn't feel realistic.

I liked the way most agreed that ZH was there to make you think and not blindly accept and it wasn't essential for the articles to be wholly accurate.

I thought ZH overreacted though with all those messages apparently exchanged.
Someone coulda made em all up and we have no way to verify ......
i.e. the very thing they have taught us is to question things.

They should have just mocked Bloomberg for feeling the need to denigrate such an irrelevant website and played it as a compliment, which of course it truly is.

I read something or other from a "sketchy" corner of the internet all the time - often with a pretty clear bias to it. Doesn't mean there isn't something of value to be gleaned from it even if most of it is bunk. You just have to be able to see past the filth.
