Bob Pittman is No One-Eyed Jackass
Daniel Gross interviews Michelle Leder of Footnoted.Com. I am so excited to create Shyster Capital Management, because at the end of the day you really are either a shyster or a sucker. And I'm a shyster. Shyster Hall of Fame candidate and AOL pioneer, Bob Pittman, now CEO of Clear Channel, knows how to fly. Get a load of this.
... Footnoted.com reported that Pittman's deal stipulated that he would have a plan available to him — preferably a Dassault-Breguet Mystere Falcon 900 — for business and personal use. In November, Clear Channel filed a new disclosure, noting that the company would pay a leasing company owned by Pittman $3 million per year for the use of the jet that will ferry Pittman around the country. The name of the leasing company? Yet Again."
Imagine having the testeballs to demand such luxury and THEN profiting off of it as well? That's a 100% pure CERTIFIED SHYSTER move. And you know that a man's bejongus increases by at least 25% just by flying in a plane called a "Mystere Falcon 900."
I'm proud to be an American. So *&*^%ing proud.
