Binney has been interviewed by virtually all of the mainstream media, including CBS, ABC, CNN, New York Times, USA Today, Fox News, PBS and many others.
Last year, Binney held his thumb and forefinger close together, and said:

If your job is related to the housing industry in any way, you should be extremely concerned about what is coming in 2014.
