“While other news personalities report on the Greek riots from the shelter of a luxury hotel’s rooftop, Max and Stacy are down in the square with flak jackets, gas masks and a camera rolling despite the bedlam taking place all around them. When other pundits lament the lack of regulation, Max and Stacy call for the bank executives’ heads to roll. No one speaks with more candor and no one speaks with more courage on behalf of all of us – the victims of the most infamous unpunished heist in world history.” ~ excerpt from The 25 Most Dangerous People in Financial Media by Huffington Post’s Joshua M. Brown, author of Backstage Wall Street
Max Keiser and The Keiser Report on RT was voted number one on this list. There’s a reason Hillary Clinton is worried about the US ’losing the information war’, and named RT as one thorn in their side. Her testimony was chilling during a time when Occupy was just getting started and the message it sent was a signal to all of us in free press. Hillary’s words were, by proxy, the words of this administration and proved to be brazenly unpatriotic and servile to the interests of the 1%.
This clip of Max at SPIEF 2012: European Crossroads highlights exactly why the man makes the elite writhe in their chairs. The truth hurts and Max delivers it with relaxed, scathing precision and a good dose of humor at the incredulous ponzi scheme that everyone seems to know about from free press sources – but the US media never covers.
It’s important to note that most of the guests on The Keiser Report are ignored to the extent of virtually being banned from mainstream media. The fact is, this man gives those voices space to present viewpoints that we would never see on CNBC or CNN Money. It is exciting to watch Max get the opportunity to challenge junk economics in this open forum and in neutral territory.
You don’t even need to understand the details of this global crisis. In fact, most of the details are only there to confuse the public and steer the conversation away from reasonable discourse and more importantly, full disclosure. That is where Max shines out for the rest of us.
