We’ve previously aired our gripes with the media’s fawning over Warren Buffett, and the pandering was in full bloom again at Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholder meeting in Omaha this weekend.

For all his folksy wisdom and grandfatherly chuckles, make no mistake — this cat can talk his book with the best of ‘em. Here’s all you need to know, from WSJ:

Indeed, Warren. You have at least five billion reasons not to believe Goldman acted improperly.
