"On the five-year anniversary of Bernie Madoff outing himself as the world’s most notorious white-collar criminal, the financial world still hasn’t learned some simple lessons. First, business journalists should stop listening to the fraudster himself. His multibillion-dollar scam caused at least three people to take their own lives, including his son Mark — yet Madoff remains mostly unrepentant and uncooperative. He continues to blame “the greed of others” and loves to offer his opinions on how Wall Street really works...Truth be told, I’m one of those reporters who spoke to Madoff in the years since he turned himself in. He banned me from contacting him in prison after I concluded a couple of years ago that he’s a delusional sociopath. It was one of the proudest days of my life." [NYP]
