Man tries to lie his way into major publications — and succeeds!

Mike Caro says:

This doesn’t surprise me much, because many of the news stories I’ve been involved with accepted what I told them without checking facts. I know, because it wouldn’t have been easy to check. Lucky for them, I have a history of being right.

I’ve even told reporters that Mike Caro University of Poker, Gambling, and Life Strategy (MCU) was a hoax. It is, kind of, because it never developed the physical presence of degree programs that were originally intended. My “hoax” admission was never quoted, but I did get a front-page story for MCU in a business journal. Read this Forbes story by Dave Thier. If you’re not clear how this guy could have gotten away with that, maybe someday I’ll publish some strategic guidelines. — MC
