Prominent Republican Uses Completely Original Excuse To Explain Massive Failures

It was the media's fault.
Enron founder Kenneth L. Lay, in his second day on the witness stand in his fraud trial, Tuesday vented his most vehement criticism at the business press, saying stories that appeared in fall 2001 resulted in "absolutely destroying the confidence of shareholders."
Natch!

Stupid media, pointing out that Enron was more crooked than Lombard Street. They get so uppity with their "facts" and "reality."

Yeah, really. And as usual, it was the most leftist unhinged moonbats in the media world, the Wall Street Journal, that lil Kennyboy felt most persecuted by.

I'm surprised he didn't offer up the Gabbo defense:

"I'm a bad wittle boy!"

Sort of like the bad form shown by a passenger on the Titanic, calling attention to the sinking under way. Bad for morale and all that.
