The real problem with CNBC...
Putting it mildly, they are a bunch of self-styled "defenders" of the American free market system who are, in reality, nothing but Republican hacks recycling the same talking points and bad ideas that got us into this economic mess.
They have one guy on staff (Steve Liesman) with some degree of common sense, and he is regularly set up as a prop to be shouted down by one (or more) of their loudmouth conservative blowhards.
Oh, and they give naive people bad ideas about how to invest their money.
So, in summation: Rick Santelli, you're a fucking idiot...
