Bullish on BP

Have no fear, Bill Gates. Your foundation's millions of BP shares are safe. Hedge-fund ed "reformer" Whitney Tilson is bullish on BP.


  1. Far be it from me to tell Mr. Tilson how to invest his (and other people's) money. But the fact he is "bullish" on a company that is so corrupt and has done so much damage in the world, says more about Tilson than it does about BP. Now comes the news that BP may have even used its political clout to get the British government to release the Lockerbie bomber in return for a Libyan oil contract.

    And to think that this man has the ear of Secretary Duncan and is influential in setting public education policy, is astounding.

    Thanks for covering this story, Mike. I love your blog.

    Maybe tenured, unionized teachers can be used to plug the hole in the earth caused by the Deepwater Horizen. It's a win-win!!!

    I'm sure Whitney and his fellow privateers would approve.
