As you can probably imagine, I felt honored when Forbes asked me to write an article for them. Wouldn’t you be flattered if Forbes wanted you to write an article?
It was one of their regular columnists who requested the article, who I’ve called “Pat” to protect the guilty.
Pat had asked me to answer ten questions for publication. The questions indicated Pat knew I have a contrarian take on Wall Street and that I’m a consumer advocate.
I was eager to answer Pat’s questions and tell the world about the scams in the mutual fund industry and expose the wealth-killing truths about 401(k)s and IRAs.
And I supported every statement I made with impeccable and unimpeachable sources, from Morningstar to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
But two days after receiving my article, Pat declined to run it “because there’s just too much controversy.”
