    Herb & Cramer are a tag team.

    In my opinion, Cramer probably hyped HLF so his short buddies could short it at the highest price possible. Sad to think he, supposedly the common man's investment advisor, is really just setting up some of his followers so his short buddies could take advantage of them.

    Herb and Cramer teamed up with the shorts against Pre Paid Legal Services, another MLM. Don't think these two don't talk about Herbalife. There's no way that Cramer just heard this.

    PROBLEM: On the lightning round Cramer tried to act like he just found out about the problem with Minkow and that's why he soured on Herbalife

    1) Here is a link to an 5/8/12 article by Herb and a CNBC video dated 5/2/12 @ 2:35pm EST (Almost the entire segment is about Minkow)

    Excerpt from article: "Last week I asked Herbalife why it had paid convicted felon (and former Herbalife critic) Barry Minkow $300,000 to shut up.

    Minkow, who served seven years in prison for being the mastermind behind the ZZZZ Best fraud, is now serving five years in prison for conspiring to manipulate Lennar, another company he had targeted)."

    2) REAL PROBLEM: So after Herb has published and discussed Herbalife's problem with Minkow several differnt times-> CEO Michael Johnson goes on CNBC with Cramer supposedly on his side and Herb as the reporter critical of Herbalife. So at the beginning of the interview, does Cramer really expect us to believe he knew nothing about Herbs allegations relating Minkow. Below is a link to that interview and I don't see any real surprise on Cramer's face (yes he is critical of how HLF handled the matter which makes me feel even more strongly that he had to already know about Minkow in advanced to jump on it like he did) Note: Minkow is discussed around 8:45 of the video-

    So after the above interview where Cramer was supposed to be a supporter of Herbalife, Cramer answers a viewer about Herbalife and goes into a denial about knowledge of Minkow before outing Herbalife's stock-

    NOTE: Watch video @ 2:55 Excerpt: "I didn't know that-> I found out later that"

    Talk about dancing to change a position

    ANSWER: YES Herb and Cramer are a tag team so don't trust either one of them
