The Deep Capture website was created to bypass the “captured” institutions that mediate our nation’s discourse. It was initially funded by Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com, but it is not part of Overstock. It functions as a separate, limited...

No substance here
The constant accusation of short sellers causing collapses in the stock market is the common theme of the articles here. I don’t buy all the conspiracy-like theories here – just a bunch of hyped up commentary to draw in the readership. No Thanks!

Dislike Patrick Byrne
One of the founders of the site, Patrick Byrne, is among the biggest idiots I've seen getting involved this crusade against short sellers who are out to get him and his company OSTK. Just a weirdo. I would never endorse anything he's a part of.

Exposes The Reality Behind Patrick Byrne's Pyschosis
Please do not be misled by Lila Rajiva who I guess is a really gullible journalist. Since she thinks critics are engaged in revisionist history, let me make some revisions. :)

Deep Capture is one of the least important exposes on the internet and run by scum bag named Judd Bagley. It is also a totally corrupt site that will track your IP address.

The Deep Capture team warns of things after they happen and attribute them to phony baloney causes.

They've also systematically corrupt as shown by their stalking of respected journalists' children on facebook.

The team threatens and intimidates anyone who criticizes them.

One of the founders (and funders) of the site, Patrick Byrne, holds a PhD in Developmental Studies and Moral Philosophy from Cambridge and Stanford, and is a former academic, an unsuccessful businessman, and the scion of one of America's least respected business families. He is also bat$hit crazy, going on message boards and television attacking critics. He thinks short sellers are out to get him even though short interest in OSTK is well within legal bounds. He also doesn't know how to turn a profit and likes to fire accountants and restate earnings a lot. He has said doesn't believe in EBITDA probably because he's never had a meaningful one.

He is a cancer survivor and I am sorry that happened to him. At the very least, it shows that anyone can beat cancer even scumbags. So take heart kids if this loser can do it so can you!

Deep Capture published striking and completely refutable evidence that some dozen or so major journalists have had (and still have) a cozy or corrupt relationship with the banks and hedge-funds they should be monitoring. They love to find nonexsistent links. OSTK has been investigated and is currently being investigated by the SEC . I wouldn't be surprised if FBI got interested in what intimidation OSTK uses.

Naturally OSTK is upset that people are onto their sham. It is hard to to loot a company if everyone is watching you.

Naturally, deep capture hires goons to attack

So they confuse novices with revisionist accounts of the story, which are then fed across Fox news since bloomberg isn't dumb enough to fall for it.

Naturally, the truth gets muddied among the uniformed

Ask yourself.

what responsible CEO is going to tilting at windmills when he can't even turn a consistent profit? Rant about fictional short sellers that aren't even shorting his crappy company?

why is it that that a internet retailer creates an astroturfing website to attack, harass and stalk critics?

And that the CEO also just happens to be corrupt?

Let's even say Byrne is everything that his critics say he is.

So that makes all the "corruption and fraud" that is documented extensively on this site and available freely to the public completely untrustworthy.

There you do I think that's more accurate now.

Full disclosure:

I have never had a position in Overstock.com equity long or short and never intend to. These people are pyscho. do not go to deepcapture.com or shop with overstock.com

Exposes The Reality Behind Wall Street Propaganda
Please do not be misled.

Deep Capture is one of the most important exposes on the internet and the winner of the 2008 weblogs award for the best business website. It is also a top corruption site and one of the top financial sites, despite its often controversial and colorful material.

The Deep Capture team warned of the financial crisis before it took place.

They've also systematically exposed the corrupt ties between the media and large hedge funds, banks, and regulators.

The team includes a former editor/writer from the prestigious Columbia Journalism Review (CJR), who has criticized the CJR for having fallen captive to hedge-funds after having received funds from them, and has since been threatened and intimidated.

One of the founders (and funders) of the site, Patrick Byrne, holds a PhD in Developmental Studies and Moral Philosophy from Cambridge and Stanford, and is a former academic, a successful businessman, and the scion of one of America's most respected business families. He has also donated millions to charitable causes, including founding 17 schools in third-world countries and employing thousands of artisans, at a loss to his business. He is a cancer survivor who has been recognized for his personal courage and professional achievements numbers of times.

At the very least, that background suggests a humanitarian streak that undercuts the many exaggerations, half-truths, and outright lies published about him and this site.

Others on the team include a former missionary, concerned small businessmen and investors and shareholder activists, all dismayed by the corruption and fraud in the capital markets and engaged in systematically exposing it.

They've published striking and irrefutable evidence that some dozen or so major journalists have had (and still have) a cozy or corrupt relationship with the banks and hedge-funds they should be monitoring. Some of them also profited financially from those relationships. They've also documented the loopholes that allow large hedge-funds and banks to siphon off money from the system into their own pockets. They've won law suits. They've had the SEC open cases. They've got the FBI interested and had laws put into place.

Naturally that upsets the people who profit from the arrangement.

Naturally, those people hire other people to counter-attack.

Or they confuse novices with revisionist accounts of the story, which are then fed across their networks.

Naturally, the truth gets muddied.

Ask yourself.

With all the banks that have been bailed out at taxpayer expense, with all the crooks that have been caught red-handed and have then turned up as the heroes of magazine articles, with all the CEO's who've had major problems needing tax-payer help, from Vikram Pandit to Richard Fuld, why is it that these journalists spend so much valuable time attacking only one CEO of a relatively small company, with what looks like relatively minor problems (if they are problems)?

And that the CEO also just happens to be the one who exposed their corruption?

Let's even say Byrne is everything that his critics say he is.

So what? How does that change the corruption and fraud that is documented extensively on this site and available freely to the public?

Spend a few hours and read the extensive archives and the links on the site.

Then make up your mind for yourself.

The big names in the media didn't tell you what was going to happen in 2008.

Why would you believe them on anything else?

Full disclosure:

This review was unsolicited and was not paid for by anyone. I gave my honest opinion, based on researching the information at Deep Capture for several months.

This should not be construed as an endorsement of Overstock or of Patrick Byrne, beyond his work in exposing the corruption of the markets.

I have written two books on the media, one of which (written with a noted libertarian author) predicted the financial crisis (published in August 2007).

My other qualifications to speak on this subject are available at http://www.mindbodypolitic.com and at wikipedia.

DeepCrapture Is Entertaining as Can Be
but as far as educational content or value it's a big fat ZERO.

The "reporters" are all paid shills for publicly traded Overstock.com. It is believed they all suffer from neurological disorders which are the result of exposure to toxic metals, primarily cadmium. One of the reporters previously shilled for another almost out of business firm called The SCO Group.

I strongly recommend this site (DeepCrapture) to anyone who wants a good laugh.

Some People Don't Deserve Free Speech
Misinformation provider -should-be-locked-up CEO of OverStock.com Patrick Byrne thinks there is some major short selling conspiracy to drive stock prices down...he's been known to cyberstalk bloggers and hedge fund managers who he believes to be part of the conspiracy...of course, the word of a madman means little. After all, this is the guy who just filed his company's quarterly report AFTER firing his auditor and saying they didnt understand his business...in the PR of firing that auditor, he quotes German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche...some people truly don't deserve free speech, spreading lies and misinformation about short selling Prick Byrne should be a penny stock promoter, not a public CEO

PS If any company has problems with short selling, you're in the fortunate position to be able to outperform businesswise and SQUEEZE the shorts...no easier way to get your stock up...unfortunately Patrick Byrne spent too much time acting like Jim Carrey at the end of Batman ("I am Batman!!!") and so his business stinks, which short sellers saw and profited from.
