From 2002 to 2004 I wrote a securities litigation newsletter. I knew the securities-litigation industry was a racket, but what I missed was all this backstory
about one of the biggest securities-litigation firms. I even naively covered the story in my newsletter about William Lerach leaving Milberg Weiss.
Great. An analogous situation would be filing a story on Sept. 12, 2001 stating, "World Trade Center demolished." And leaving out the part about the airplanes.
Fortunately, my readers didn't care about this sort of inside-baseball. Still, I wish I'd had been aware.
