Oops. Echostar [[dish]] lost $63 million more over the last few years because they included the same income in multiple years. A new SEC reg requires companies to disclose financial errors that are not material but through repetition have become material in aggregate. Sadly, companies do not have to run this through the earnings statement and can take it straight to the balance sheet. Unsophisticated investors may never even notice.

Disclosure: I have no position in DISH; I am a customer. I have a disclosure policy.
