Disappointing

A massive amount of work has gone into this, but as a price of journalism it is disappointing. Much as I may personally disagree with with opinions and action of the Dorr brothers, they appear to be simply exercising their 1st amendment rights. And besides a bit of sloppy accounting and trust governance, have really done nothing wrong or profited to any great extent. Yet the makers of this pod cast try to sting together a bunch of loose facts into a conspiratorial narrative. This is the sort of approach you generally expect from right win mouthpieces a la Clinton cash, but far les compelling.
