Legendary Wall Streeter Ken Langone, who once attempted to purchase the New York Stock Exchange, hurled insults at the New York Times this morning on CNBC's Squawk Box. He was describing an op-ed he's been working on for the Wall Street Journal about his long battle with disgraced former New York governor and Eliot Spitzer. One of the co-hosts of the program asked him about whether he might try to get it in the New York Times.
"I don't even try with the Times," Langone said. "Why write for some newspaper you don't even read? I mean, it doesn't make sense."
