Fortress and the Olympics.

If you don't pay us $90 million, says Fortress Investments, we will shut down the upcoming Winter Olympic Games.

As blackmail threats go, this one lacks a certain ooomph. Is it really the position of Fortress that they will not allow competition in certain Olympic events to proceed if they are not paid? Do they really want to become the most hated company in the world? Perhaps they are being advised by the crack public relations team at Goldman Sachs, which is the most hated company in the world.
