Citigroup Was Happy To Hear Ben Stein's Uninformed Views On The Market Until He Had To Go And Tell Some Sexist Jokes


On the one hand, it's nice that Citi had the sense to realize that shitty jokes about women would've reflected poorly on the organization, and subsequently disinvited Ben Stein as a keynote speaker for their May 17 event. On the other, the sagely advice that would've come out of his mouth (a la this, from August 2007: "Merrill lynch is an *astonishingly* well-run company") probably would have been hilarious.
