Media has bashed because they are trying to figure out what he might say. This has crushed the stock. Question is, is he more intersted making money or in looking smart. If he is more interested in money, he should be long ansd say nothing. (and maybe go short after the relief rally)
If he is more interested in being smart, he may pile on.
I think there is more pop to upside relief if he is silent than downside if he says the expected.
