I had it with some of the stupid a** fat CNBC anchors like Mark Hains and the dumb air head Erin Burnett. I was watching the channel this morning and they were enthusiastically celebrating a rise in jobless claims, wtf, are they freaking serious???

It is one thing to disagree with the President and his policy, it is another thing to hope and pray for the failure of your fellow American citizen. These people are starting to make me want to vomit. I actively trade and this station has lost a significant amount of credibility with me over the last 8 months (not that they had much credibility with me to begin with). Bloomberg television is much less entertaining, but there is no unhealthy spinning of ideas. CNBC, must be getting under the table money from some right wing nuts. This station is a joke and if it was not for a few decent anchors and economist on staff i doubt I'd even watch the show. They were never like this until Obama came into office. Now, i'm not sure if they were this negative during the Clinton years, but i suspect, it would have been much harder.

Don't you know attacking conservatives is a-ok with left wingers but they get their panties if anyone plays their same game. I don't watch CNBC but may now.

Imagine the hell Rick Santorum and Jim Cramer must've endured from GE when they crossed swords with the Obama administration.

Also James has direct contact with this white houses and has daily morning breifings with Rahm.

So lets see a man that is on the news vs James that is also on the news but in direct contact with this white house.

Thats tough
