Famed Short Seller Carson Block, founder of Muddy Waters Capital, was interviewed by Bloomberg later this week and took issue with Farley's comments.

Here is a  May 22, 2003 Presentation by David Rocker to the House of Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Insurance and Government Sponsored Enterprise titled:
