Does Charlie Gasparino Owe David Einhorn (And Barry Ritholtz) An Apology?

I don't think I have to tell you people it takes a big man to admit when he's wrong, and an even bigger one to follow that admission up with an apology. Charlie Gasparino is fully aware of this truism, though in his 40 some-odd years, he's had nothing to say sorry for, and certainly never gotten anything wrong. Sure, other people have seen it differently-- the guy Chaz cut off on the BQE the other day, the San Pietro busboy he screamed obscenities at for getting his order wrong (twelve martinis, roast chicken with ketchup on the side), etc-- but that's their problem. Today you can add Barry Ritholtz to the list of people that Chaz doesn't owe nothing. Yes, BR's argument has its quasi-valid points-- Ritholtz reminds us today that Chaz defended Lehman Brothers by saying Dick Fuld obviously knew more about the firm's balance sheet than David Einhorn and Barry-- but those are just facts. Charlie does have one thing to say to Ritz, though, which is simply this: ba fungul. No further questions.
