    Today in regards to sharing opinions on Brian Williams and Sonys Amy Pasquale, he prefaced with the disclaimer he has no business stakes in either outcome. He's done it a couple more times in recent weeks.
    Is he negotiating, covering his ass, or something else?

    Probably something related to his stock portfolio...he must have gotten a warning from the SEC not to rag on or praise something without disclosing he's a shareholder.

    Downside of cultivating a dwindling remaining audience of bored 50 year old stockbrokers.

    Because he wants to make his biased opinions look unbiased.

    He says he doesn't have any business interests in the topics because he has business interests in the topics.

    his contract probably says he has to insure that everyone knows he is speaking for himself and not as a representative of his employer. its very important that it be especially clear that he is not the voice of sirius or liberty.
