Powerful interview:

Kevin O’Leary, a cut-throat businessman, and Chris Hedges, a philosopher and war correspondent, are from two completely different ideological worlds. Hedges is fully aware of the environmental collapse that is unfolding and O’Leary is just wondering how to make money off it. Sorry for the anti-capitalist sentiment there, but it’s true. It appears that Kevin O’Leary has a "greed is good" mentality:

In a recent Globe and Mail interview given while doing his book tour for what is aptly titled: Cold Hard Truth, he had this to say about wealth:

“Money equals freedom…You may lose your wife, you may lose your dog, your mother may hate you…None of those things matter. What matters is that you achieve success and become free. Then you can do whatever you like.”

And Chris Hedges isn’t the first person to be disgusted by O’Leary:

Review: Three complaints about Kevin O’Leary, co-host of The Lang & O’Leary Exchange

April 14, 2011

 

REVIEW

 

Three complaints have been lodged concerning Kevin O’Leary, the co-host of the CBC News

Network program, The Lang & O’Leary Exchange. They provide an opportunity to review his

involvement as a contracted employee on CBC news and information programming.

 

One complaint, from Kyle Mytruk, concerned a remark by O’Leary on the January 27, 2011

program. During a wider discussion about General Motors, O’Leary said labour unions were a

“parasite” on business. Mytruk asserted that the comments were unfair, were not even-

handed, and violated CBC Journalistic Standards and Practices.

 …

Another, from Carl Hunt, concerned remarks by O’Leary in CBC Television promotional spots

that “greed is good” and “I love money.” He said CBC had provided O’Leary a soapbox to

provide “American-style economics.” He said O’Leary’s values, fully applied, would deprive the

country of its ability to help the less fortunate. Hunt wanted to know the dollar value of the

commercials.

 

A third complaint, from Julian Lepinski, concerned O’Leary’s on-air disclosure of a conflict-of-

interest in a discussion on regulatory issues on usage-based billing of internet services with an

official from BCE Inc. O’Leary noted he was a shareholder but did not note his equity and

income fund held BCE shares.

 

“Listen, I love this policy because I’m a shareholder,” O’Leary said. “That’s all I care about. If you

could suck every last cent out of users, I’m happy for you.”
