HL is not the only victim to fall prey to "Forbes' Miner Bashing Program".
Last year, a day before CDE released their Q4 report, out comes this flaky article about CDE's big Mexican mine, Pal. Big "expose" on hoards of Mexican Bandidos harassing the mining operation, complete with a nice pix of a big fence topped with razor wire.
Totally over the top YELLOW 5hitheap journalism (an oxymoron in Forbes case) that helped crater CDE's stock price the next day.
Forbes is a DIRTBAG operation. You all saw how they gave ABX (the biggest gold hedger ever) great press.
