Does anyone have a digital copy of Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne’s appearance on CNBC this morning? Sounds like it was a classic, with him denying that he is the Sith Lord behind the current SEC investigation (while conceding he had spoken to the SEC), meanwhile waving placards and running straight into guest host Herb Greenberg.
[Update] The videos can be found on the Wall Street Journal site. The Byrne video is here, and Herb Greenberg’s response is here. Absolutely jaw-dropping stuff. I hardly know where to start, but at the very least Byrne’s scripted use of a placard with various website URLs on it while talking about other people’s conspiracy theories has to rank as one of the most bizarre moments in the history of business television.
