Wirecard critics targeted in London spy operation
The Union Journal, 11 December 2019
Two specialist traders, Matt Earl and Fraser Perring, co-authored the Zatarra report and therefore are one of the eight guys surveilled over recent weeks, combined with Mr [Crispin] Odey, Brett Palos, the stepson of merchant Philip Green, along with Nick Gold, a veteran stock exchange speculator.
Wirecard executives seem to have guessed a mole was working at a senior level within the firm after Mr Earl and Mr Perring released their Zatarra Report at 2016, prompting a criminal investigation from Germany into alleged market manipulation.
The Story of Deep Capture
By Mark Mitchell, with reporting by the Deep Capture Team
The Columbia School of Journalism is our nation’s finest. They grant the Pulitzer Prize, and their journal, The Columbia Journalism Review, is the profession’s gold standard. CJR reporters are high priests of a decaying temple, tending a flame in a land going dark. In 2006 a CJR editor (a seasoned journalist formerly with Time magazine in Asia, The Wall Street Journal Europe, and The Far Eastern Economic Review) called me to discuss suspicions he was forming about the US financial media. I gave him leads but warned, “Chasing this will take you down a rabbit hole with no bottom.” For months he pursued his story against pressure and threats he once described as, “something out of a Hollywood B movie, but unlike the movies, the evil corporations fighting the journalist are not thugs burying toxic waste, they are Wall Street and the financial media itself.” His exposé reveals a circle of corruption enclosing venerable Wall Street banks, shady offshore financiers, and suspiciously compliant reporters at The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, CNBC, and The New York Times. If you ever wonder how reporters react when a journalist investigates them (answer: like white-collar crooks they dodge interviews, lie, and hide behind lawyers), or if financial corruption interests you, then this is for you. It makes Grisham read like a book of bedtime stories, and exposes a scandal that may make Enron look like an afternoon tea.

Foul Play Among the UAL Shorts?
Bloomberg, 8 October 2002
The shorts have crowded in on UAL in a big way, helping to push the parent of financially troubled United Airlines much closer to bankruptcy.
