    Who Knew?

    Larry Kudlow, “huge fan of Carly Simon.”

    Who Stands Out In A Bad Way At CNBC?

    Last week we pointed out a feature in Marie Claire magazine in which CNBC anchor Becky Quick posed as a “Fashion Expert” telling a twenty-something bond trading girl how to dress for Wall Street. We couldn’t help but notice that it seems Becky offers a veiled insult at one of her fellow CNBC anchors when […]

    Just Asking

    Are we excited for a week and a half of Dennis Kneale and his funky glasses, who are filling in for Dylan Ratigan on “The Call”? If it means we’ll finally get an answer to Charlie Gasparino’s question “does Dennis Kneale use hookers?” we are.

    Did Warren Buffet Turn The Tables On CNBC And Attempt To Poison Them? No.

    Congratulations, CNBC (.com)! The network’s website, which has heretofore only been recognized as a destination for Mark Haines fanboys interested in finding out what kind of sandwich** the anchor ate for lunch, has been nominated for a Webby. Hard core stalking of the Oracle of Omaha (which included an attempted burglary by Bob Pisani) apparently […]

    Greenspan: No Regrets

    As part of his Defending the ‘Span Tour ’08, Alan Greenspan appeared live via satellite today on CNBC, in a rare “not nude in the tub” post-retirement interview. We had the thing on mute, but this is how we imagine it played out: Al: Maria, is that a new perfume, or is it just my […]

    I’d Like To Hear What No-Sleeves Has To Say

    CNBC ran a segment earlier this morning about how to deal with workplace bullies. It’s not entirely clear why. Perhaps as a companion piece to FBN’s “Be A Dick” special, perhaps because they’ve just given up entirely. MarketWatch’s Herb Greenberg argues that having a resident jerk in the office is good for business, while Gary […]

    If You Like That, You Should See David Faber’s Big Toe

    I think CNBC’s Rebecca Jarvis is a pretty girl, I do. But this homemade video of what appear to be clips from her days on The Apprentice don’t do much for me, probably because I don’t have a foot fetish. According to our last reader poll, though, that’s not the case for the vast majority […]

    Not Enough Cock, Coke or Money: The Few Things That Didn’t Suck about CNBC’s Seth Tobias Special

    Let me tell you a little something about CNBC’s For the Love of Money: The Death of Seth Tobias– it was awesome. April Fool’s! The thing sucked. And I say that as the person probably most excited about it outside of the regulars at Cupid’s, who’ve gotten some great publicity out of this whole thing, […]

    More To The Point: Which TV Anchors Have Been Propositioned By, And Turned Down The Advances Of, Jimmy Cayne?

    You know which saucy CNBC minx we never write about, not even to speculate on her personal life? Michelle Caruso-Cabrera. No offense to MCC, she seems like a good journalist and all, it’s just that Carney’s taste tends to swing more Anglo-Saxon and I prefer to objectify men like Mark Haines, who really have it […]

    This Sounds About Right

    Susan Krakower sits, stands, perches, then paces the length of her windowless office. A crease deepens down the center of her forehead. In two hours “Fast Money” airs, and something’s not right. The show she created isn’t moving fast enough in its second segment, and that’s a problem. “I want the trades – get right […]

    Mark Haines Asks The Hard Questions (Though, Let’s Be Honest, The Goomah Renders This A Non-Issue)

    Circa 9:20 am, after Gasparino says on-air that Spitzer is expected to resign at 11 today: Mark Haines: “Charlie Gasparino, who I can assure you cannot afford [the rates at Emperors Club VIP]” Erin Burnett: [weird, are we going there? look] Mark Haines: “What? Who among us can?”

    Fox Business Would’ve Had Her Ride The Unicorn Topless, But Whatevs

    From the Horse’s Mouth [CNBC] The (non-embeddable) video above ends with Erin Burnett riding a hobby-horse around set. What’s there to add? Just a slight clarification (the head of the riding-stick on which Burnett gallops is that of a unicorn, not an actual horse, though it follows the hobby-horse construct. We’ll call it a Unicorn […]

    Charlie Gasparino “Sees The Goodness In All Of God’s Creatures,” Except The Homeless, Who Are Satan’s Spawn

    CNBC reporter Charlie Gasparino recently answered 21 questions for New York’s Daily Intel, and I don’t want to say he’s been muzzled because nobody muzzles Charlie Gasparino but damn if it doesn’t sound as though, for reasons lost on DealBreaker, Dago’s trying his darndest to come off as some Yanni-loving, yoga-practicing, ‘in-touch-with-his-feminine-side’ New Age puss.
