Nastier Than We Want ‘Em 2 B: Dennis Rodman & Billionaire Marc Cuban Encourage Pimping

By Debbie Schlussel
Last week, I warned you about Dennis Rodman–the aptly-nicknamed “The Worm”–who won’t go away. As I noted, he’s back with “Geek to Freak,” a cable show on HDNet in which he says he’ll take nerdy people “for a walk on the wild side.”
Well, the wild side was even worse than I thought. And it gives new meaning to the titles of the books someone once ghost-wrote for him, “Bad as I Wanna Be,” and “I Should Be Dead By Now.”
Rodman is actually taking Americans into criminal enterprises, like pimping. Are authorities watching? Here’s more on the execrable Rodman’s sewerage from USA Today “Sports on TV” columnist, Michael Hiestand, who calls it “Inspiration” (hopefully, he’s being facetious):


Mark Cuban & Dennis Rodman:

World’s Most Annoying Sports Fan & Athlete Encourage Pimping

We’re not making this up: HDNet officially describes this show, where the ex-NBA star “takes ordinary people” and “pushes them to take on experiences,” as Rodman taking “his devilish turn at outing a secretary as a stripper, a construction worker as a cross-dresser ‚Äî taking his volunteers into bondage, oil wrestling, sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll ‚Äî even pimping!” Cuban, the Dallas Mavericks owner, promises the show takes Rodman’s “freakiness to new levels.” And it’s about time.

No, it’s actually NOT time for this. Ever.
Thanks to bratty billionaire Marc Cuban for pimping this excrement on the American public through his HDNet. One wonders whether he’d like his young daughter taken to “new levels” of “freakiness” by Dennis Rodman. Somehow, I doubt it.
First, Cuban makes a movie sympathetic to homicide bombing Islamic terrorists on U.S. soil, then a movie about a Syrian Muslim falsely accused of assassinating President Bush. And now, he’s contributing to the further homicide bombing, assassination of basic American morals.
E-mail Marc Cuban to let him know what you think.

Well, it’s not as if we’ve seen enough of the promotion of pimping in our society already. All this does is make it a bigger fire.

This is also the genius that hired “respected journalist” Dan “false but true” Rather as the centerpiece of his newscast. Kind of like hiring Joe Biden to write regulations against plagiarism…..

What I find amazing, is that Mark Cuban was never investigated for his pump and dump scheme called Broadcast.com more than likely because of his friends that occupied the White House at the time.
He is a con artist that walked away with billions from a company that was a product of the Internet Dot Com Bubble. He received over 5 billion for a company that had only 300 employees and made less than 100 million a year.
It does not surprise me at all that he chooses to associate himself with the likes of Dennis Rodmam but what does surprise me is that the MSM seems to have forgotten that Cuban acquired his billions from a scheme called pump and dump-IMHO.
They treat this guy like a Rock Star instead of a flim flam man.

Of course, Cuban is a giant fraud, but what he did was technically legal, just like the AOL/Time Warner fiasco, which was the biggest catastrophe in the history of commerce.
For the perpetrator of a sleazy deal to go down, his scam has to
a) Really defraud lots of people
b) Piss off someone important and powerful
Even then, many co-conspirators will emerge unscathed.
Remember, the best scams are always the ones that are legal (even if they are unethical and immoral).

Mark Cuban and Rodman, yawwwwwwwwwwwn.
These two phony “rebels” bore me to tears. The only good thing about this show is it just makes me care even less than these two attention starved momma’s boys.

Debbie, at least Cuban asked you out, he must have some taste. BTW does he support any Jewish causes?

There is one good thing Cuban is doing. His Fallen Patriot Fund (a part of The Mark Cuban Foundation) has financially supported the families of soldiers killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom, to the tune of $1.9m.
Fallen Patriot Fund:
His hiring of Dan “Fake but Accurate” Rather to produce and host “investigative reports” on HDNet? Definitely stupid.
