Shorting a stock is not the same as trying to bankrupt a company.

It may overlap with WANTING the company you've shorted to go bust, but wanting something and trying to bring it about are obviously very different things.
Especially in situations that one of those is legal (the wanting) and the other frequently isn't (the trying).
