FOR STEVE FORBES THE TRUTH IS AN INCONVENIENCE TO BE IGNORED

Steve Forbes of Forbes (magazine) is like his father, Malcolm Forbes.  The truth does not matter.  Rather truth is to be treated as an inconvenience.  And like his father Steve Forbes is a dunce.

Malcolm Forbes did not run the day to day operations of Forbes.  Malcolm Forbes was too busy chasing Hell’s Angels in dirty washrooms.

So too Steve Forbes did not care about hiring an individual, Gary Weiss, who lied about his sources.

At the time Gary Weiss was writing for Forbes, Weiss’ wife Anjali Sharma was forging documents (actually on line newspapers) so that she could obtain media credentials at the United Nations.  The United Nations News and Media Division never verified with The Pioneer, a newspaper which is based in India, to determine if Anjali Sharma were a reporter for The Pioneer.  The United Nations merely looked at printouts of front pages of The Pioneer that had been falsified on the home computers of Anjali Sharma and Gary Weiss.

Having never received a paycheck from The Pioneer, one must question Gary Weiss’ involvement in this scandal.

In 1999 on one occasion when I was at the offices of BusinessWeek, Weiss and another individual demonstrated to me how to use a computer program to produce that week’s copy of BusinessWeek- articles and most importantly, the front page.

Nice going Steve Forbes.  You really took the Japanese for a ride.
