From the NY Times: S.E.C. May Reinstate Rules for Short-Selling Stocks

The Securities and Exchange Commission appears poised to reverse itself and reinstate rules that would make shorting stocks ... somewhat more difficult.

...the most likely outcome may be for the S.E.C. to reinstate ... the uptick rule ...

“I don’t mind what I see as minor inconveniences,” said Whitney Tilson, an author and managing partner of T2 Partners, “if it will get rid of the critics who like to blame short-sellers every time a stock goes down.”
Some people will always blame the short sellers.
