Got Bias? Suddenly, Larry Klayman Tops the Reuters Charts
Reuters via Yahoo ^ | Wed Jul 10,10:15 AM ET

Posted on 07/10/2002 7:45:30 AM PDT by dead

After hundreds of lawsuits, and the howling roar of silence from Reuters regarding them, Judicial Watch's latest ditty shockingly debuts at Numero Uno on the Reuters “Top Stories” Yahoo charts:


Group Sues Cheney, Halliburton over Accounting
Wed Jul 10,10:15 AM ET

MIAMI (Reuters) - A public interest legal group filed a shareholder lawsuit on Wednesday alleging Vice President Dick Cheney ( news - web sites) and the oil services company he ran for five years, Halliburton Co., as well as accounting firm Andersen, defrauded shareholders through accounting fraud.

The lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch alleges that while Cheney was Halliburton's chief executive officer, he and its other directors inflated revenue reports, which increased the stock's value.

"They overstated their revenues by tens of millions of dollars and that's an understatement," said Larry Klayman, chairman and general counsel at Judicial Watch. The civil suit was filed in Dallas federal court.

Klayman said the inflated revenues resulted from accounting changes that were never made public as required by law. The lawsuit did not specify the amount of compensation the plaintiff shareholders are seeking. But Klayman said: "We're seeking millions and millions of dollars. ... It's to punish the people involved."

Cheney worked as chief executive of Halliburton from 1995 to 2000.


Congrats Larry! You’ve finally found the magic formula for glorious media stardom! Took you long enough!

My thoughts exactly.

But as Larry has amply and repeatedly demonstrated, any fool can file a lawsuit. The real trick lies in winning one (Larry's not big in that department).

Is this the same problem with charging revenue from change orders before they are negotiated. If it is IMO its not a big deal. If HAL was honest then the next quarter statement would include the reduced negotiated amount. Even if the SEC decides its improper such a practice would only improve the balance sheet for one quarter.

A public interest legal group

Man, this really is disgusting. After 8 years of being a conservative legal group, now suddenly they are a "public interest" group. Sick.

National Proletariat Radio had this story as its SECOND item (followed by another unbiased story that began with "The REPUBLICAN controlled House is looking into a bill to..."). Looks like judicial watch has made the big time.

It really is amazing. They used to be politically biased, now they work in the realm of public interest.

I can't wait to see Coulter's or Bozell's take on Larry's new found credibility.

I was standing in the kitchen this morning and I heard my local CBS station run through the Judicial Watch piece.

I remarked to my wife that I never once heard the words "Judicial Watch" on local TV news during all the years of the Clinton Criminality.

I was always taught to finish what was on my plate before asking for more.

Hey Larry -- what did you find from those White House E-mails you labored so long to produce from clinton/gore? What was in those E-mails?

After you tell us at least THAT, then you can go on to Bush/Cheney.

  Judicial Watch now offers its own membership badge with holder, to members. It has an additional slot for JW membership card or ID. Make it official by owning a JW badge.

We need to start connecting dots about Klayman.

Maybe some of the numerous lawyers that have gone through JW might want to come out and spill the beans on Klayman. Any organization with as much turnover as he has, has to have some disgruntled ex-employees around!

Queston: Am I dreaming or did Russ Verney from Reform go to work for Klayman?

Probably not. You'd need a court to certify a class of individuals who have suffered direct harm from his illegal or tortious activities, and that would be a high hurdle. The fact that he's harming America as a whole wouldn't be sufficient.

This in addition to the clintons and carville working behind the scenes to take the President down. carville is behind the attack ads now running against GW. The DNC person admitted it. The clintons and their cronies continue to run the media - and larry klayman needs to be outed as the scum he is. Vice-President Cheney is an honorable man that loves this country, as is the President. I hope they don't stay silent while the media hypes the ads and the likes of money-grubbing, camer-seeking, dishonorable klayman.

White House Comment: Suit is without merit! Even Fox just alluded to the lawsuit.

Gloves are off guys -- we need to start digging up every last morsel we can find about Klayman.

Maybe FR needs an investigative arm as well as its own press area with credentials for Freepers investigating or interviewing.

Please tell me how one would go about filing a class action lawsuit against Larry Klayman.

The best case against a lawyer like Klayman will be on behalf of one of the clients that he nominally represents.

And I suspect that that will happen one of these days.

Australia's liberal Sydney Morning Press has suddenly discovered his “public-interest law firm, Judicial Watch”!

"Where have we been hiding him?" they wonder?

Exactly. So Larry stands for ethics? He is now "in good" with the media puppets who more than any other entity is responsible for the damage and danger that our country now finds itself in.

Congrats, Larry. That money must be really good.....

Do your eyes light up with dreams of grand estates???

Terry McCauliffe has some good insider stock trade tips for you!

In fact, if you play your cards right, Larry, you might get a prime time slot on ABCNBCCBSCNN now. Wouldn't that be neat? You could fit right in with all the other Democratic Party plants in the press puppet lineup - from Steponallofus, Begala, Matthews, Woodruff, Rather, Jennings, Brokaw, Blitzer, Russert, et al ---- a dream I am sure you have. The dollar signs are flashing too much, Lar. Welcome to the biggest garbage entity of history.

But none of Larry’s suits against President Clinton (there were dozens of them) ever made the Reuters "Top News" list. Most did not even merit a small forgotten note. Neither did any of their suits against Gore or Reno.

Has the media only recently adopted your journalistic truism?

Voted for the peanut farmer? Oooooooooo - surely you jest.

I don't know two people who still admit to that!

Klayman has delusions of grandeur that mirror those of the peanut farmer.

Useful idiot the Commies call his kind.

So I did remember right -- Verney did go to work for JW! Someone told me that Klayman worked for Perot in 1992 but I am still trying to track that down.

Of course I am one of the few ones on here who believes that Schippers was not exactly the best man for the Impeachment House Managers. Never trusted him and still don't. He blamed the Republican Senators and was strangly silent when he spoke on the RATS that voted en masse not to remove clinton! That spoke volumes in my mind.

Well enough did that he was elected.....

"You can't panhandle for money from the American people," said Klayman, a registered Republican who voted for Democrat Jimmy Carter in the wake of Watergate. The fund, he said, "opened a Pandora's box of people trying to influence them."

They will never stop until they have destroyed us all and are standing with their fists in the air on the rubble they have wrought.

They need to be slapped down with an iron fist and the sooner the better. Take off the gloves, pubbies!!! And any and all who still love this country!

So do I. I have started spending a lot more time in prayer, and a lot less time on talk radio.

I am seriously praying that God will remove the vermin from government.

That's not to say that I'm not going to stop WORKING at VOTING them out, writing and phoning, but am adding serious prayer to my activism.

Very seldom ever turn on talk radio anymore and that is all I used to listen to. When my radio is on it is turned to music the vast majority of time or sports talk radio on the local Norman station. Cannot take most of these political talk shows anymore! I'll read instead what is happening which makes it less stressful!

Well, Klayman was right about Clinton. But he never got ANYTHING of any substance accomplished. NONE of the Clinton lawsuits brought any justice for any of those seeking it.

But the BUSH Administration lawsuits will being Klayman riches beyond his wildest dreams and positions of power, if he wants them - in order to continue to do the bidding of the GlobalSocialists who want nothing better than for America, Americans, and all who love them - including our President and Vice President - to be destroyed.....or, better said, to be conquered....so that they may rule over it in their Globaloney world socialist utopia!

Maybe Lar will get he chief of propaganda post there!

Since he is laying down with dogs, Larry should not be surprised when his immortal soul becomes just one more of Satan's trophies!

Anyone want to bet that Perot money has been funding a good portion of this Bush witchhunt by Klayman?

That may be the reason he won't open up his list of donors but was willing to sell his mailing list -- bet they are not one in the same!
