There’s not much there yet but has officially launched. The new website aims at uncovering corporate misdeeds. It’s being written by veteran reporter Christopher Carey and, err, underwritten by Mark Cuban. When the project was announced it generated some controversy because Cuban said he planned to trade on information uncovered by the site’s reporter.
Cuban’s apparently sticking by his plans. According to the first entry on Sharesleuth, “In certain instances, the majority partner of is going to make personal investments based on information we uncover. Those investments will be fully disclosed, so that readers can evaluate any potential conflicts of interest.”
That first post was dated July 1. All quiet since then. Surely it's too early for the SEC to have shut it down already.
