DeBord Report on 'America Now with Andy Dean,' May 25 edition

It's the Tuesday after a holiday Monday, so it must be time for me to post my weekly business and economy segment from "America Now with Andy Dean." A day later than usual. We will be back on the non-holiday schedule next week!

Andy and I covered the complete disaster that the Facebook IPO has become, especially the potential trouble CFO David Ebersman may face.

But we also discussed the bloodletting at HP under new CEO Meg Whitman, as well as just replacing the entire IPO process with massive Japanese all-girl bands and — this is a very good one — Barry Diller's kindasorta completely aggressive attempt to resell the broadcast T.V. signal to digital users by, get this, renting special antennas! That last one is fascinating.

As usual, Andy and I have a pretty good time running down the week's big news in business. Check us out live this Friday at 4 p.m. Pacific Time!
