I believe the term you are looking for is "carpet-bagger".
You see, with Fairpoint, it is a southern-company that got hooked and stuck with the bill/debt of Verizon's dying copper-plant.
Now Fairpoint's investors were either narrow-minded or plan on short-selling soon.
"Verizon, using the colors of the Nazi party in their logo!"
Fairpoint didn't get stuck with anything. They stuck themselves. If they and their bank of lawyers didn't see this coming then shame on them.
