This is amazing and disturbing though not at all surprising.

Patrick Byrne, the CEO of (OSTK), has always had it out for journalists who don’t buy into his theories about the naked short-selling cabal.

But, Barry Ritholtz has discovered the most ridiculous thing yet. His site — which is ground zero for the naked short selling fringe — has a public database of all the journalists he despises AND THEIR FACEBOOK friends.

Since it’s all public on the internet, I’ll just post a chunk here, to show what I mean.
