How to Repair Your Image: An Online Makeover
"When there's news about a person or company good batter ugly? It usually ends up online but new reporting from the Wall Street Journal shows that some of the wealthiest Americans have found a way to scrubbed their images online getting rid of the bad stuff and replacing it with more flattering coverage reporter. Rachel Levy of the Wall Street Journal joins us to explain. First of. We'll ritual how did you come across the story so I cover hedge funds for the Wall Street Journal and I had been researching one of the subjects. It's actually in the story and started noticing some websites that drew my interest out. I was looking on Google. And that's sort of how this began this lead you to an Austin in Texas based company called Status Labs. What exactly is the service that they're offering their clients to status labs is online reputation management company? Their external lawyer. We are sent us a letter indicating more about what they do and what they told us in what they were we have in we put in. Our story is a single false. Accusation can cause permanent damage damage to a person or a company's hard earned reputation. This imbalance of power has made the first page of Google. I and oftentimes the last impression for individuals and companies The where continued attended on to tell us that fifty five satisfied employee's US quote variety of proprietary methods which are always evolving to help clients disseminate positive and truthful information about themselves themselves online. The first part of your story deals with Jacob Gottlieb who was a hedge fund manager is used the services of status labs to scrub his image Jacob Gottlieb. The league ran a large hedge. Fund called Victim Asset Management. A few years ago. It had several issues that came up one of its money. Managers was accused of insider insider trading and died by suicide a few days after he was charged Mister Gottlieb's former brother-in-law go into legal troubles as well and his on effectively leap was forced to shut down about a year ago or a little more than a year ago he was considering raising money again for Hedge Fund and and my understanding is that last year he also hired this reputation company status laps any paid thousands of dollars to do this cracked. Did it work. As far as GOTTLIEB's attempt to rehabilitate his reputation several websites featured Mister Gottlieb. After he hired status ops so he would search for his name on Google. You would come across these websites that appeared like news outlets but we're not actual news outlets google news in particular was featuring several of these of these websites until I called and asked about them and Google news took them down. They said that several of these websites didn't meet at standards over Transparency and he also tried to rehabilitate his image in the form of highlighting his donations. His philanthropy correct so several of these articles. When you read through them the the bulk of them there are overwhelmingly positive and fathering they would tout his investment acumen his charity and in one case found on a website called Medical Daily Times? It said that he had donated to initiative. Nyu when I called NYU. They said That he actually hadn't donated to that initiative Though he had donated to other initiatives that at the school though. Interestingly when you call that website pizzeria entire onto was Was the the number that picked up. That's funny Pizzeria Rian Toronto. Yeah and then. The author of that particular article had a photo that was actually A Canadian theatre actor and then when I tried to meets the candidate theater actor has publicist told me that I had no idea. has his photo was being used. In this way Rachel talk about wikipedia. which was started by status labs co-founders because that figures into this as well so i? The CO founders of satisfieds pre ran a company called wikipedia which was banned effectively by Wikipedia by the organization that is overseeing wikipedia Several years ago and going forward and to today's status labs one of the services that they apparently have provided to some their clients. Is wikipedia edits. Now that's not a problematic history on its own But you can't go in there without their permission Kenya well. They could use a free encyclopedia so I could create an account. And and and and and edit it but I have to disclose wants me to disclose if I am working on behalf of somebody if I if somebody's paying me to edit their page I am I am supposed to under wikipedia is rules to disclose that what were some other more notable clients of. There's some fairly familiar names here. According to my reporting status ops provided added services to several notable people or companies one of them is now education. Secretary Betsy Devos. There's another large Hedge Fund Citadel L. Massive Hedge Fund On Wall Street received wikipedia edits and And also the owner of thoroughness of the defunct company. Well Theranos the company. Leave Rachel. Have you had any responses from the people that you report it on in your story namely Jacob Gottlieb Betsy Devos or theranos else so Jacob Gottlieb when I asked him about status labs. He said that he hired them to help him. Watch his new venture and then in relation to generally speaking but also to The website that featured information about him about NYU donation. That wasn't accurate. He told me nobody would make an investment based on a no-name online online blog. Although he did say that it's helped his reception on tinder the dating APP. Betsy Devos I didn't get to speak with her but her spokesperson at Advocation Department said that it doesn't sound like the Department or the secretary of a relationship with status labs and didn't respond other questions that I sent an S. for Theranos I tried reaching Elizabeth homes as attorney As well as other attorneys and I could not reach them. What's the bigger picture here? Rachel in the age of disinformation. You know this story about manipulating Google's Algorithms and wikipedia entries and essentially getting away with it despite regulatory scrutiny. What's what's your biggest takeaway from this story? My biggest takeaway is. Is that despite many efforts to make it easier for us to find information online regular information online there are still ways for websites they can masquerade as news outlets to appear online. Avoid Google's detection even appear on Google news which is a source of information for many Americans and I think I think think it raises a lot of questions Wall Street Journal reporter Rachel Levy. Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me.
Play Times Over for D&B
"Seth Jason thanks for being here. I'm in my full don't run me over callers with my greasy sweaty guy who biked in a look. So for those of you who can't see me look for the video, that's, that's almost ever this is. Yeah. This is when the people are like, no we're happy that it's an audio podcast, we're thrilled. We don't need. We don't need to see you in the bright, orange biking shirt. I don't even have a handsome voice. Nice speaking voice. Let's move along. We've got we've got a bunch of news. And we're going to we're going to preview some earnings that are coming after the closing bell. Let's start with Dave, and Buster's, though, because first quarter profits came in lower than expected. And that's actually the first time in five years, that's happened for them. Shares of Dave and Buster's are down more than twenty percent this morning. I know they lowered guidance how much did they lower it? I mean they didn't they didn't miss by something. It wasn't a whole much that full year guidance to and they missed by a penny or something. But people are freaking out. I think once you've set up the expectation that you're going to do better than than people. Expect all the time than the minute, you don't all heck breaks loose. Hey, I on a stock that's done fifty percent or something. And he's a very clever tech company. So if you really want to know how to lose money come to me twenty twenty some percent and a day or a week, nothing but Dave and Buster's to me is one of those businesses seems odd to me that sort of still exists because you've. You've so much restaurant competition. And then you on game and food. I mean how is everybody not at home? Getting door dash food delivered while they play eight packs legends on their on their XBox. Can I answer that because you don't always want sixty your friends coming over to do that? You sometimes you just want to get out of the house. I suppose a comp comp suggests that the a slightly slightly negative flat. People aren't all add excited at least the last quarter, or so they've been getting a little growth over the years by opening new locations. The margins I was like, in the margin been kind of creeping downward for several years now. So this is not my idea of a super awesome, opportunity that free cash flow isn't really there. So unfortunately, you know, sitting there at a price earnings ratio of seventeen sounds like a bargain today. But I think it might need to be more of a bargain before it's a before it's a real deal. Glad you mentioned the cops because that was one of the things that leaped out at me when I was looking at this quarter was that they're, they're comps really. Aren't that great? The new locations. And by definition for those who are new to this podcast or new investing. When we talk about comps, same store sales by definition. Those are locations that have been open for at least a year, the new location. I mean, this, this is one of those things that is maybe not a red flag. But maybe it's a pink flag. Not just for Dave and Buster's. But for any, whether it's a grocery store, just a basic retail operation, or in this case, Dave and busters where it is a little bit of a pink flag where you go wait. So the new locations, there's the initial excitement. Dave and Buster's has opened up in your town or your city or whatever it's like, oh, let's go there. But if they can't sustain those people, and I'm wondering how much of the gross margins creeping down has to do with an increased marketing spent because it does seem like they are doing a lot of promotional stuff. Yeah. While the margin I mean, all the margins are on the way down. So I mean their food prices were going up for a while. And then we had labour and other costs going up. So, but a lot of restaurants are experienced. It's just plain old competition. You have to match prices or in, in some way or another, to bring people in the door. One of I guess, one of the challenges, I would guess, exists for Dave and Buster's is hey, it's a it's super small location without much stuff in it, right. No, it's, it's not it's a place where you play stuff. So it's not like cranking out another one of those poll as with the wrought iron furniture made out of black pipe from from the, the plumbing store. It probably costs, a little more money to build these locations, if they're not paying back so quickly. Your financial start to their other way. So I think on the plus side over the next couple of years, Dave and Buster's to the extent that they're looking open up new locations. We'll probably have more options as commercial real estate continues to face some challenges on the flip side, whenever the conversation turns to well, we think of recession is coming next year or two. You know, when I think about stocks that are recession proof, Dave and Buster's. It's at the other end of the spectrum, this is this is a business. That's done. Well for a bunch of years, but it seems like one of the ultimate discretionary income stocks. Yeah. I guess we'll find out someday. I'll predicting recessions has been a bad business. Yes. In a while. So the fact that the stock is at a two and a half year low, you're not looking at this ain't no. Yeah. By on this dip now. Yeah, I got I got a long history with with value, finger, quotes value stocks like this, that continue becoming more, and more of a value, but less and less of a value, if you know what I mean. Tesla had its annual shareholder meeting on Tuesday. Shares were up briefly this morning in part because Alon musk made comments at the meetings at the meeting. He said he say anything positive. Well, I can hardly imagine, you know what? Let's, let's be clear if he's not any CEO, who's not saying positive things that their shareholder meeting is doing a bad job of being the c. So I don't knock him for that. He said, among other things, it won't be long before we have a four hundred mile range car talked about in twenty twenty Tessa drivers will be able to use self driving features without intervention. I it seems like you just look at the stock chart today, there was some initial enthusiasm stock. Doc was briefly it's now down a couple of percents of problem. If you if you say things that don't turn out to be true often enough, sometimes people stopped believing you it was more than two years ago that Elon Musk promised us that you'd be able to sleep in your tesla while at drove across the country. And everyone believed it then, and then, you know that never happened, and then he kinda dials things back and then a couple of months ago, he doubt things if he said, four sure there will be a million robo tesla robo taxes on the road, you'd be stupid, not to buy any other car, which is just laughable. I mean, consumer reports a couple of weeks later rated autopilot, as dangerous and more difficult to drive with than just driving yourself because it was so erotic. And now we have a couple of months after that autonomy day, which to me, seemed like a smokescreen designed entirely to try to shift, the sentiment of the, the company away from financials and towards, you know, hey, we're going to become an Uber competitor and now. Now, a sort of walking things back and saying self driving without user intervention. But also at the same time supervised robo taxi, which, by the way like Waymo is doing that right now in that exists in other forms? And he just makes these promises that don't match up that don't line up with the reality of what other self driving car leaders are saying and what they're doing. This is a really difficult task and it's not just a matter of getting a couple hundred thousand or a couple of million more miles. There's real diminishing returns for machine learning for doing this, and they have not cracked, this not yet in Tesla's doing it with more. Limited hardware than other companies is nobody else trying to do it their way, which tesla true believers would say, well, that just shows a genius. Mosque is I tend to think that if he's the only one doing it this way, and all these other really smart people are seeing you probably can't do it that way that he's probably the one who has it wrong. So very interesting shareholder meeting. There were some other comments that stood out. To me, Tesla's shareholders are obsessed with the idea that there of being victims. They love this idea that they're victims of a media conspiracy, which is hilarious because they are the, the beneficiaries of so much media incredulity for years. I mean nobody nobody looked at mosque and said, can you really do all those things until recently, now, of course they don't like it. I one of the remarks of something about, you know, it's crazy. The media talks about you is if you're about to go bankrupt, and he says, you know, of course, we're not that's just insane. Except not too long ago, everyone thought they would need to do that. They were running on a cash and must claim they weren't. And then after they had a quarter or they got some free cash flow. He came out and said, yeah, we were only a couple of weeks away from running out of cash. So they wanna have it both ways. It's really nutty. And to me, it's the kind of stock where I wouldn't take a real position in it either way. Because on the one hand you have a CEO who's very comfortable saying things that are not true. And you have a lot of other executives leaving the company probably related to that on the other hand, you have this rabid shareholder fan base. That makes the stock whip Cy it's completely detached from fundamentals. It's all about this crazy personality, not for me. You just reminded me of. The Alex give new documentary that was on HBO and for for those who haven't seen it. It's a it's a fabulous bit of documentary filmmaking about theranos, and Elizabeth homes. And one of the things that. Was noteworthy to me in that was the opening of the documentary. That was a decent bit of information about Thomas, Edison, and sort of, you know, sort of tracing the line of the Silicon Valley, fake to you make it mentality back to Thomas Edison, and saying, you know, Edison did a fair amount of that. Like, there's, you know and, and, and that's, that's a tried and true practice that, you know, didn't didn't start with Elizabeth homes. It didn't start with the Elon Musk. And you know that, that kind of thing goes on all that being said they report earnings second quarter report is scheduled to come at the end of July. It really seems like on the times when tesla has come out with, like a legitimately, encouraging slash great earnings report. A lot of that other stuff just disappear. So and by the way, I'm like you, I don't own shares. I would never know millionaire short stock. I'm on the sidelines just watching all of this play out Noddy and. I just sort of think, to myself. Well, you know, no one ever gotten trouble for walking up to bat and hitting home run. And if they don't, if they come out at the end of July and have some blog quarter, and that, then that helps. Well, of course you have to do it. Yeah, but, you know, the miracle quarter was it was to a large degree, and it wasn't really spoken about at the time. The cash flow quarter was was a artifact of really massaging working capital and calling in some favors. And so you wonder can actually keep doing that. They raised money following the miracle quarter because they needed it. So the suggests that they couldn't keep doing that. It's not easy to build cars. It's not easy to build cars, and you also tell everyone you're going to build self driving electric trucks and all of this other stuff. So maybe they pull it off. I really hope the industry goes, but they have a lot more competition, coming from all the other manufacturers, and those manufacturers are not stupid.

The Importance of Rest and Recovery
"Might tips are as much for me as they are for you. And may involve some more thinking out loud, especially after how much the conversation prompted by my reach versus relationships piece on Lincoln has helped Volve some of my thinking. So today, I thought I'd talk a bit about rest and recovery. It was John Clegg. The former Olympian turned medical device sales rep who I interviewed on sale success stories who really got me thinking about this after he talked about how much he prioritizes recovery in his own approach personally. I've sort of a macro and micro issue going on. So from a macro perspective. It's looking like, I probably won't get my first vacation until close to the halfway point in the year. Spring break from my kids this year happened to be the same week. As the biggest conference of the year for my company where typically managing conversations and other interactions with over half of my clients. So I sent them to Harry Potter world in Orlando while I went to work in Las Vegas, and yes that was the Vegas trip where I got sick afterwards and lost my voice, then on a micro level. This week was one of those crazy travel weeks. The trip to Vancouver was super productive. But according to my fit bit I slept for three hours and fifteen minutes on Tuesday, four hours and fifteen minutes on Wednesday and five hours eight minutes on Thursday. And then to add insult to injury. Waking up at two forty five AM to catch a six fifteen AM international flight home wasn't a lot of fun after all of that. So personally, I'm looking for a bit of reprieve sleep is probably the first thing I need to work on. So I'm looking at really backing off of my us. Four thirty AM wake up time for a week or two just to make sure I get back into that seven or eight hours of sleep zone where I perform best, unfortunately, that's probably going to have to wait another week because my travel schedule next week has me spending a bit of time on both coasts. So tomorrow. I'm actually going to delve into the travel side of things. So these tips will probably go together pretty nicely. The other thing that's fallen off a bit for me is exercise not completely and mostly that's because of the travel, and because my default exercise right now is my peleton that bike doesn't exactly fit into my carry on. And I really haven't been doing anything else on the road lately. So you wouldn't think that exercise fits into the rest and recovery category? But for me, totally does I find I'm way more sane and have significantly more energy when I make time to get a workout in and Jonah when I talked with him. It was kind of. Same thing. Right. He learned the strategy from training as an Olympian right where resting is in recovering is not exercising. But from a sales perspective exercising is a great way to to recover, maybe not rest. But again, it's that energy that comes out of it. So beyond that, I really need to find more ways to incorporate more short but restful periods into my schedule. Since a real vacation probably isn't in the cards until at least June. So one thing I've been doing. There is listening or reading more fiction. I have a tendency to read nonfiction almost exclusively. But I'm realizing that it's just causing me to think about the same stuff all the time, and I never really turn off. So apparently, I'm making the transition to fiction kind of slowly because the book, I'm finishing right now is actually nonfiction it's called bad blood, and is about the theranos and Elizabeth homes collapsed.

"Why because she's a billionaire and that I think is something that is worth thinking about. Alex, you'd previously made a film about Steve Jobs who comes up a lot in in. This story is Liz is maybe a role model for Elizabeth homes. Did you see any interesting connections between the Steve Jobs story and Elizabeth homes story? Yeah. There's two important ones. One is I think I think the most important thing about Steve Jobs who in his own way, tried to pretend that he was an inventor when he really wasn't. He was a storyteller. And he was a magnificent storyteller. You could see him at the beginning of his career, you know, trying to hawk the early max he looks like a Tupperware salesman. It's almost embarrassing by the end. He's masterful. I mean, he's he's doing these ipod presentations up on stage choreographed down to the to the last jot and tittle, and and and making it seem like, you know, you're in his living room hanging out with him. I was genius. So he was a great storyteller. And he was a storyteller in the Edison mold which is to say he put himself front and center at the heart of his stories, the main character in the drama, just like Edison was just like Elizabeth was so in that sense. I think they share a certain commonality Elizabeth's genius. Was that she was a storyteller mind. She was telling an extremely fictional story. But she was a storyteller. The lesson though that Elizabeth didn't learn about Steve Jobs, which is a really important lesson. And something that Phyllis garner says at the end is really important. You must always admit it. You will always admit your mistakes. Steve Jobs learned a lot from his failure. First go round, and then his failure at next in particular. So an apple two point oh comes around. He's surrounding himself with some very talented people, the John Rubinstein in charge of hardware. Avi. Veniamin who's briefly shown here in charge of software, Johnny I've designed and these people could say no to him, and he would listen to them. And so he learned from stakes in a very powerful way. The head of Toyota used to say mistakes or precious. Well, unfortunately, not for Lisbeth homes. So one of the people who work for Elizabeth homes. Tony Nugent says that they were at some point on a pathway to maybe realizing a portion of. This dream. And I and I wonder if in your reporting, you have any sense, if there could have been a different story here if they had allowed the Edison box to be bigger, or if they had taken a slower approach is their version of this where you could have had a company that would have been a disruptor in healthcare or did the people you've talked to think that this was a total fantasy. It wasn't a total fantasy because some of the technology is out there to be realized in this era. And by the way, as we briefly pointed out on the film, you know, I think that this was a an area that needed disrupting these two companies that control lab tests in question lab core have been sued often by Medicare and Medicaid for overcharging. Their prices, are terribly. Opaque and very high. So it was right for disruption, and there was a technology there. But two things one was she tried to do wait too much in terms of trying to put all this stuff in one box. There were accomplishable goals that she could have realized and also had she listened to the people around her. Maybe there would have been a path. But the big problem in this often happens with people who are struggling to realize dream, and then when they're not making it instead of paying attention to the fact that they've got problems they invest in the idea that the dream is real when it's not and that was a moment when they were desperately needed capital because they were running out of money and they had to make the deal with Walgreens. And when they made the deal with raw greens. And it was a crazy deal that was kind of bait and switch and all that. But when they made the deal with the raw greens that meant that their shitty testing was being utilized on real human..

If he thought the company was fraudulent, obviously, you're gonna lose your money granted. Right. But it's still poses the question of of the tyranny of a conflict of interest. And I it's it's not clear to me that that necessarily the the bar would would preclude these types of arrangements. But to me, they seem problematic. I've probably had people chanting f my name at various places to. John Kerry, Ruhul we're talking to is a two time Pulitzer prize winning investigative reporter at the Wall Street Journal, also the the author bad blood, the book were discussing you mentioned her being attractive. I've always thought that that plays a role in this. There's just something appealing about the girl next door looking attractive blonde. Plucky, you know, up with feminine America. That's that plays a role in it, doesn't it? I mean, I think it was a factor. But honestly, she she's also incredibly smart, you know, that this is an idiot. Oh, no, no, no. I wasn't implying that skewing nonsense at people. She she was she is incredibly articulate, she's got a very, sharp intellect and division. You know, the way she presented her vision was very believable. And she had this charisma. She her idol with Steve Jobs. She idolized John. She was obsessed with how but he actually invented the iphone. See that's the difference. She shared with him. This this trait that he had this reality distortion field chief she had this ability to make people suspend disbelief. Wow. And so she was very much like him in that way. Wow. That that that's that's interesting. But she had to know that this was going to collapse at some point. No, I don't necessarily think she thought that. I mean, you know, what I seen the letter soliciting a formerly soliciting an investment from Rupert Murdoch that she sent him and at the very end of two thousand fourteen and he ended up investing in in the following weeks. And this this letter mentions that the company is going to stay private for the long-term about sixteen or seventeen times. So so I think her game was to just stay private and to keep raising money over and over again and to stay private forever. Wow. Classic pyramid scheme. Final question because we're running crazy late, but what is Elizabeth homes and Sonny Bono Wani's likely fade at this point. Well, that's a good question. I think they're too shoes that are going to drop them in the next. Couple of months. One is the the company is going to run out of money, and and a private equity firm, but loaned money last year is gonna is gonna seize its assets and liquid liquidate them and theranos will cease to exist. I think by the end of the summer, and the other thing is that the US attorney's office in San Francisco has been conducting a criminal investigation, and as you know, the SEC recently charged her and the company with fraud and sunny by Wani as well, but there's been a parallel criminal probe. And my sources tell me that that investigation is very well advanced and trying to tweet conclusion and a distinct possibility is that a Elizabeth and sunny won't be indicted. Time to die your hair Brown in hire a submarine to take yourself. The second.

"It doesn't seem to be anything redeeming about Elizabeth homes in the book Shakespeare in another stories of people who fall from greatness. There seems to be a little bit more complexity and there are people who have some good motivations, and there were stories of things that they did. You know, acts of kindness, moments of grace, even though their flaw. On, and they commit crime and massive fraud and lots and lots of people. There's none of that in here about Elizabeth homes. What, what do you make of her and why? She did what she did and what kind of person she is, you know, separate apart from any crime she may have committed, what do you, what do you make a purse? Well, I would say that if there is something redeeming about her and if you contrast her with a guy like made off or some of these other mega fraudsters, I do believe that her vision was genuine. The ultimate vision of creating a diagnostic device that would be revolutionary and would therefore, you know, improve mankind. She really did believe in that vision. Unfortunately, she felt that that vision and achieving it justified, everything that she did to get there and and I think that's where she got herself in the trouble, and that's where she turned bad. Do you think she understands. What you do is wrong, or do you think she's still in that mode even when things were falling apart that she was right in everyone else's out together and everyone else is wrong. I'm not convinced that she understands that she did wrong and that she understands the magnitude of the wrongdoing here, a producer works for Alex Gibney, who by the way is working on a theranos documentary for HBO that should come out early next year had dinner with her last fall. And she said to to this producer that she felt that she Chandana anything wrong and that you know, all she had tried to do was build a successful startup and that startups often fail and that male startup founders often fail and they're allowed to fail in that she wasn't being allowed to fail does not only is there a documentary being made about their nose and Elizabeth homes. But as we discussed before we started taping, there's a Hollywood movie being made. Is that right? That's right. Who's playing Elizabeth homes, Jennifer Lawrence forever who's playing you. That's going to be determined at a later date, right? What's happening right now is Vanessa Taylor, a screenwriter in Hollywood, who co wrote the shape of water with gear Mon del Toro is working on the screenplay, and she needs to finish the screenplay handed in at a McKay who is the director attached to film the movie to direct the movie and is producing it will then have to get the screenplay greenlighted. And at that point will the other members of the Caspi detri- see if I can make a suggestion if you need someone to play you. Paul giamati is an excellent choice. How about Mark Ruffalo who also also great who played a great investigative reporter in spotlight and also the hulk. That's what I thought you were going, John, Kerry, ru. Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you. It was fun. So now comes the time in the show the talk about something that affected me in the last week and you may be thinking in the dog days of summer. I'm getting a little sappy and maybe that's true. So yesterday was Tuesday, and I was thinking about doing something very radical, but I had not done in many many years, and that is to go watch a movie in the middle of the day, and it wasn't sure I should go do that. But then I got an Email from my book editor at can off would finally finished reading the first draft of the book that I handed in three weeks ago. And he said, among other things, quote, I'm very pleased which is high praise for my editor. So thank you Peter. And that put me in a really good mood. And I thought, why don't I now go ahead and watch a movie and decided to walk out into the hot New York City air. So I walked down to an old theater on twelfth street and second avenue in Manhattan to see a movie called, won't you be my neighbor?.
