Short seller bets a billion against Live Nation, worlds biggest concert company

This asshole is named Plotkin and he invested $1B in Live Nation stock, which values the company at about $20B; however most of the blog-o-sphere calls him a short seller; and he worked for Steve Cohen – -not Eugene Robinson’s former house mate. For comparison sake, see below:

This is Brittany Parks pka Sudan Archive. photo by Getty images, obviously. Fair use. One of the last shows I saw before the Covid shutdown was Sudan Archive at Noise Pop at Swedish American Hall, I really dug it. I tried to book her the next night but they decided to add an Oakland show, not Palo Alto, fair enough. I have my own photos from that night. I did not meet Brittany — I didn’t want to spoil the purity of all her fans being young woman, many of color – and not old white guy in the biz. I did meet the support act from Montreal – hey, maybe she can play my Leonard Cohen tribute, just announced for 11/12/21 five years past his death. I mean the Montreal act, not Sudan Archives.
