I watch CNBC to get investment news. I want to hear about earnings - industry news and stocks.

I do not want or appreciate all the time given to POLITICS and Kudlow is by far the worst offender. Every bit of information is his opening to give a political interpretation. Although I voted in the GOP Primaries it doesn't matter to me if CNBC wants to be liberal or conservative I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT.

There are so many political programs on FOX -MSNBC are full of Obermans - Limbaughs and we have so much opportunity to see lunatics of the left and the right at every minute. I don't want to debate whether it was Bush or Obama's fault I want to know "winners and losers" earnings - statistics data ON STOCKS.

CNBC has a toll free number asking for comments on programming- take a minute and make CNBC a real financial channel again!

CNBC runs a shady operation. Why not switch to Bloomberg?

Big mistake.

Smart people watch CNBC to take advantage of dumb people that act upon what they hear on CNBC.

"Asia Confidential" with Bernie Lo on Bloomberg is an excellent source of information beyond the soundbites of CNBC guests - and it's funny too!

Peter Schiff was right, and Lisa Krudlow was wrong.

Politics eefects the markets more than evr how.That is why any markets program must inclde political policy news and views. Even the nighly businesss report reports the politcal effects on markets.Look at GM and you see that politcal decisions make all the difference where the stock stands.Otherwise their would be no politican doing anything that has to do with business but it has everything to do with it ;especaily now days.Go to any broker and you'l likely see c-nbc on the tv as they want those reports form the market floors and constant feed if they aren't there.

actually, at the top it is all politics.

Watching and listening to economic and political talking points can help you predict what is going to happen.

and when an economic show gets all political (especially with political guests) you can guess something is up...and vice versa for the political shows.

almost all topics discussed or whined about on cnbc and the other shows are a short list and narrowly focused. If you watch it enough and write notes you can see the trends both politically and economically.

We don't need them for their political opinion- as I said there are plenty of non stop shows with politics. I want financial information- industry review and because they spend so much time on political interpretation, we are missing good stories and data.

To the poster who suggested BLOOMBERG - my cable company doesn't carry it.

just look at the parent company. ya'll should have seen them when they were covering an NRA event the other day and looking at the performance of gun stocks. what a bunch of elitists. there is a huge disconnect between rural and city folks regardless of which way they way from center they lean.
