"More importantly, and unfortunately, Colin also was revealed to be an
emotionally unstable, psychologically troubled alcoholic with a drug dealer
past, as per his own disclosures.

emotional collapse and ultimately led to his abrupt departure. All of these
facts *were also made clear to Bloomberg as part of its source

sole-sourced piece by a disgruntled former employee who not only admitted
he had major psychological problems, a checkered past, was unstable, but
had also made clear his motive to "out" this website with hopes of crushing
it and even issued death threats to Zero Hedge workers."
