Below is a link to a fabulous interview with value investor Mario Gabelli on CNBC.  Gabelli touches on how he takes a long-term approach to stocks and is not overly worried about tapering because he is not buying an ETF or index fund, but instead is buying businesses at discounts to intrinsic value.  Gabelli is known for his incite on the media sector and he has some interesting commentary on the consolidation in the cable industry.
