I won’t believe it ’til I see it, but Carl Icahn says that his blog — The Icahn Report — will finally go live tomorrow. My colleague Dane Hamilton has the scoop.
The site has been blank since its launch earlier this year, save for four words: “Please subscribe. Thank you.” Today, however, the site completely disappeared behind a password-protected firewall.
I asked Icahn about the blog during an on-stage interview at Buyouts East in March, and he blamed attorneys for redlining all of his initial attempts. Either the attorneys have since relented, or Icahn has agreed to certain guidelines. My guess is the former.
“We’re hoping for a grass-roots response to this down the road,” Icahn told Hamilton. “We want to get shareholders to realize they should be doing something.”
