It's yellow journalism. It's all a fraud and a scheme to make people lose confidence in Full Tilt Poker. They will do and say anything to make an easy buck.

Perhaps you can find some morals and ethics and try to emulate Fox News. They have high journalistic standards. Quad Jacks is like the National Enquirer of online poker media. What a crock.
I would have 100% confidence in FTP if I never listened to those fools at quad jacks just rolling in $ cause of all the rumors they spread.

Seriously took me to the fox news part to realize this was a level.

What really irks me are these opinionated guests who keep giving their opinions. Poker players deserve better than chit-chat, gossip, and speculation. We want facts and only facts. And reputable journalists have ethics and don't pull stunts. I can never forgive QuadJerks for their cruel assault on poor Howie Lederer. This man revolutionized poker and risked life and limb to provide poker to Americans.

Perhaps you can find some morals and ethics and try to emulate Fox News. They have high journalistic standards. Quad Jacks is like the National Enquirer of online poker media. What a crock.
Surely referring to him as Howie is more offensive than anything QJ has said?

FYP

I wouldn't lump all poker media together - there are some poker news outlets that actually try to report news and be factual.

Re: Howard Pays Off $150K in FTP money

Probably would mean people aren't getting paid if this is true. If people will get paid not any time soon. Sending a bad message either way to players , basically spitting in their face by taking care of his close peers. When asked by quad jacks as to when people who had money on full tilt would get an announcement as when funds will be paid, he responded when the time is right.

Whats going on with the sale of full tilt to european investors anyways?

You guys come on here and insinuate that you knew his tweet was fake, not realizing that makes you just as dumb as if you had fallen for it. You're basically saying that you are purposefully reporting on a rumor that you KNOW is false just for attention. This is completely ridiculous and irresponsible from someone who considers themselves to be "media". I also think it's insulting that you're falling back on "just want to get the players paid!" when you're being criticized for an action that has no influence whether or not players get their money back.

Pretty much everyone was behind you guys and loved your show in the wake of Black Friday. The response has changed and become overwhelmingly negative.

Do you think it's us?

re:all the qj hate.

would'nt todd be the real douche here? but everyone thinks he's funny amirite? pretty poor taste imo if todd thinks teasing about peoples livelyhoods is remotely funny.

all i see that qj's did here was report it. they didnt make up the stuff, so again this looks like the case of nvg pig piling on qj's, more than likely the kiddies from DD.

The fact that TB made the joke or whether you found it funny or not is not the issue. The fact that people actually took it seriously is.
More so, the fact that QJ took the story and ran with it is even worse because they are regarded as some sort of poker news outlet now.
According to you the joke was in poor taste. So do you not hold a media outlet responsible for perpetuating a bad joke done in poor taste?
This was just a way for TB to draw attention to himself and QJ was happy to oblige.

BREAKING NEWS, Bryan Devonshire cant dip (chew tobacco) on the feature table...

QuadJacks thinks this is absurd and tells him to dip away..

@QuadJacksDotCom We watched you "dipping" all day yesterday!!! @devopoker KEEP IT UP SIR!!!!
