ethic q from sample exam 2 cfa

was statement 2 incorrect because it added the word either to directly or indirectly?

No it is incorrect because the statement at the end said “threatening negative reports” It should have read… threatening to change reports, recommendations, or price targets" So i guess you can threaten a ngeative report to a company all you want, you just cant threaten to change current reports… BS right?

thanks it was driving me crazy,read it 10 times could not see any differnce
