Did you read the whole wiki link you posted or just stopped when you saw the picture of him being white, male, and older? Maybe you are what 89 says you are.

From your own link, the guy has been basically a muck-raker journalist his whole life, he investigated and put forward that Ken Starr was the leak for most of the stuff leaking to the press in his investigations of Bill Clinton, he did a thorough investigation of medical billing practices and how they systematically and intentionally overcharge to maximize revenues, and he did a whole expose on Johnson and Johnson and how they illegally marketed a drug for 20 years while intentionally hiding the side effects on children and the elderly.

Why is he bad?

Back in the go-go hostile takeover days of the 1980s, Steve Brill’s American Lawyer tabloid was required reading for anyone interested in the professional (and personal) whoring and wenching that is part of BigLaw. It was moderately entertaining back in the day. Don’t know whether it still exists in some form or not.

Well, I WILL say that if Baby Boomers couldn't vote Trump would not be President. So, yes, Baby Boomers did screw things up.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star

It's funny how this thread played out. A Trump guy posts an article lamenting the failure of trickle down economics, too much corporate lobbying and money in politics, the dangers of gerrymandering, and how greed is not good. Then a Bernie guy responds with shade.

This is exactly what the elite want: the masses distracted, ill-informed, and predisposed to argue without thought, thus keeping us occupied with the mundane while they line their pockets. They're so good at it that they have people gathering en masse to support things that are ultimately bad for them and their kids. People are now basically conditioned to eat their **** and smile, and to lash out at the people not smiling.
