No financial planner/advisor is going to be perfect. One can fault with something about all of them. In our area Ric Edelman is very popular, he has very good advice to give, but not all is perfect.
IMHO one has to approach these "popular" financial advisors and look at them from a "crowd sourcing" perspective... how much of their advice is basic and consistent? I'd say 95% of folks, if they followed the basics of "LBYM, save, keep your debt down and invest simply", which most of these folks expose, would be better off. Where one has to thread carefully are specific investment recommendations they make. But I understand that, so I can ignore that aspect of their advice.
I recently viewed a Vanguard webinar where they interviewed Jack Bogle. His message also was "just stick to the basics". I don't know, many too many people find the 'basics" too boring, which leaves them more susceptible to things they don't understand but many come wrapped in a nice package...
