Today, the NY Post reported that Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff was "dying of cancer"—according to its sources. And now the federal Bureau of Prisons says the Post's sources are wrong, with a spokeswoman saying, "While the NY Post story is full of inaccuracies, and we can’t specifically address all of them, we can tell you that Bernie Madoff is not terminally ill, and has not been diagnosed with cancer.." However, the Wall Street Journal's Law Blog spoke with a source "familiar with the situation...who reiterated that Madoff does, in fact, have a 'serious' form of cancer, though the source could not confirm that it was life threatening." Of course, the WSJ and Post are both owned by News Corp., so who knows? And now we are left to wonder if the BOP's statement is also referring to Madoff befriending the Native American inmates and visiting the sweat lodge shirtless and hanging out with the "homosexual posse."
