Prokhorov on NetsDaily? Sure, but not that MSNBC profile by Robert Windrem, aka "Net Income"

Citing news articles and even coverage in Russian (via Google Translate), NetsDaily, via chief editor "Net Income," does not typically hold back in its coverage of Nets principal owner Mikhail Prokhorov.

Except, curiously enough, there's been no mention of Monday's MSNBC profile by Robert (Bob) Windrem, aka Net Income. Maybe that's because Windrem was quoting himself. Or because Windrem was described merely as a "senior investigative producer for NBC News and a Nets season ticket holder."

He's a lot more than that. Windrem knows he has to stay professional.

His pseudonymous alter ego--not so much. His lust for a new arena for his favorite team--"NI is the biggest Brooklyn fan on this website," one commenter observed--means that, too often, the end justifies the means.

"He never wanted the team," Net Income commented 6/12/11 regarding developer Bruce Ratner, who bought the Nets to move them to to Brooklyn,  leverage for the larger Atlantic Yards project, before selling the team to Prokhorov. "Why do I care how it came to be? The Nets have the richest owner in sports..."

  1. Well, Norm, the answer is simple: this is a rewrite of an article we have done twice on NetsDaily, once in 2009 and once in 2011.

    It's very derivative.

    I guess it's more interesting for you to be obsessed with me than derelict enforcement of parking regs around the arena.

  2. I'm not convinced that your policy is to ignore major media mentions of Mr. Prokhorov, but...

    Shouldn't you be signing your comments Bob Windrem?

    And shouldn't you have acknowledged on MSNBC that it was a rewrite of your work, under a pseudonym, on NetsDaily?
