    Hi Laura,

    Hi all. I noticed in earlier versions of this story that Sean Hannity and Lary Schwarzman were mentioned. They both needed good source links for facts/claims about them (I found one quickly on the Guardian for Hannity owning hundreds of homes). But wondered why they were removed as giving specific examples can help make the story come alive. Do we need balance with other contrasting cases to use such examples? A structural question.

      I had the links in the original story. This article in the December 20, 2011 issue of Fortune magazine includes this paragraph: “Though it suffered large writedowns in 2008, Blackstone avoided a cataclysm. That’s largely because Schwarzman has always been obsessed with being “alert to danger,” as he puts it, instilling a caution that borders on paranoia. Blackstone anticipated the mortgage meltdown, the fall in equities prices, and the end of easy credit, and pushed hard for an IPO before the collapse. (That was good for Blackstone — not so good for its shareholders.)” http://fortune.com/2011/12/20/the-triumph-of-blackstone-on-wall-street/ In 2017 Blackstone gave Brand of the Year Award to China’s HNA Group https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/hna-group-awarded-brand-of-the-year-by-the-china-general-chamber-of-commerce-presented-by-blackstone-ceo-stephen-a-schwarzman-300584702.html A few months after receiving this award HNA Group experiences major cash flow issues – https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-02-12/hna-unit-sells-kai-tak-sites-to-henderson-land-for-hk-16-billion On May 28, Blackstone is exiting Hilton – https://www.4hoteliers.com/news/story/18320 if others want to research this know to not confuse Black Rock and Black Group – https://www.cnbc.com/2017/06/22/blackstone-or-blackrock-schwarzman-and-fink-did-it-on-purpose.html
