That´s a pitty. He was most of the times right. Does anybody know where he is now?

Todd called it like it is and didn't have the stomach for the BS showmanship (i.e. Richard Quest) that news people are suppose to exude these days to boost ratings – irrespective of how the may diminish the quality of reporting. He called the financial crisis ahead of virtually all others in his profession, but because it didn’t offer a positive spin to viewers I imagine management showed him the cold shoulder.
