Steinhardt: Buffett Has the Media Snowed

Retired billionaire hedge fund manager Michael Steinhardt in a remarkable CNBC interview takes apart Warren Buffett from start to finish. He calls Buffett the most remarkable PR person of his time and says Buffett has the media snowed. (Maybe he's reading EPJ:Does Warren Buffett Have the Media Hoodwinked, Again?)

Steinhardt also makes solid points about Buffett's recent mission to convert "bumbling billionaires" into philanthropists. He then takes on Ben Bernnake's view on price inflation and comments on how the country has changed. CNBC like you have never seen it before.

  1. I think this is the first time in my life to witness someone not singing Warren Buffett's praises--it's absolutely fascinating. I've never heard anyone speak of Buffett in that way before.

  2. This was a masterclass. He nailed literally everything on the head. I kept waiting for him to mess up somewhere, but he didn't. This was amazing.

  3. I've never heard of this guy before today, but based on this short interview I'm actually quite impressed.

    Now, has anyone done any checking as to why Buffett gave away all that money?
