Boycott CNBC Day(?)!

There are apparently enough people in the world who hate Jim Cramer enough that they are willing to spend an entire day boycotting CNBC "because they produce shows with personalities who take zero responsibility for stock picks and markets calls which misinform viewers and distort the severity of the economic crisis." Which, as Howard Lindzon puts it, is akin to "financial terrorism." But the question remains:

Why boycott a station you already don't agree with? Or is there a whole group of angry "Watchdog" bloggers who spend their days hate-watching CNBC, the way that some conservatives watch MSNBC and liberals watch Fox, just to prove to themselves that everything is as awful as they think, and the world (and Maria Bartiromo) is out to get them.

Don't even acknowledge the SOB's by wasting your print. You have other choices like FOX BUSINESS NETWORK, AND BLOOMBERY TV…an usually if you are really interested in business, the CNN folks usually keep some track of the market. Grow up people.

Anything negative that screws over NBC'news, CNBC, MSNBC/Obama-TV is OK with me. Those 3 NBC networks have become TABLOID-TV; little real "news", lots of fluff & wannabe porn-star newsreader babes (the pornstar newsreaders arent as bad a FOX"News"…yet)
Indeed.

In Aus, so I see CNBC Asia and Squawk Box Europe while I'm in the office. CNBC Asia is pretty nondescript; Europe I like a lot (Geoff Cutmore and pals offer commentary that's both intelligent and, often, pretty funny). Fast Money, on the other hand… well, if I can't say anything nice, I won't say anything at all. The name says it all!
While CNBC Asia's Nemesis called Australian only-Business Channel called, SKY News Business Channel (SNBC),name after a Fox News Channel's sister network Financial unit in the United States (www.businesschannel.com.au) while SNBC Repeat any FBN programs ,on "Fox Business Morning" a British man name,Ashley Webster ,which intelligent all countries including Singapore with Katie Sargent,and Australia (with SNBC).everyday while SNBC every Holiday in USA is airing on FBN.

What PISSES me off as an older cynic is why we can???t stop the bleeding where it could be stopped. You clean things up at major points of distribution - major points of noise. We have started wars around the world to stop major points of drug, terrorist and weapon distribution, yet we allow CNBC to survive and thrive serving financial terrorism, right in New York. The loudest, most broken funnel of noise and misinformation is CNBC. I quit CNBC finally, but it???s obvious that both smart and dumb people continue to watch for a variety of reasons.
Financial Entertainment has long been proven NOT to be good for the general public. The few win at the hands of the many. There are just a few news sources that can move markets and unfortunately CNBC is one of them. With that kind of responsibility, should come close scrutiny. Instead, the network has gotten a free ride from regulation. While we have been on Global Warming Alert from Al Gore, the earth was actually torched from within. Nobody was on Corporate Destruction alert.
