The sage of Omaha is having a rough week in the press. First the New York Times unloads on the Washington Post Company's Kaplan University for using Warren Buffett's name to recruit students (more on this story later.) Then Bloomberg quotes Blackstone Group's David Blitzer answering back at Mr. Buffett's criticism of the private equity industry: Mr. Buffett "has an agenda as relates to buying assets and he's running around competing with us, so I'd take a little bit of a grain of salt," Mr. Blitzer says. Then The Street runs a piece critical of Mr. Buffett for breaking his own rules on stock splits and derivatives: "Buffett himself doesn't always stick to the points he, himself, has laid out."
