CNBC: "It's not my fault you're like, in love with me, or something!"

So, we were wondering when and how CNBC was going to respond to Jon Stewart's now-nightlyhits on the network and here it is. An on-air CNBC employee tells Dealbreaker that the reason Rickles canceled on Stewie is that the latter is thought (probably 100% mistakenly) to be "bizarrely obsessed" with the former, as supposedly evidenced by JS calling RS "repeatedly" to come on the show.* And the chatter going around Englewood Cliffs is that Stewart-- and we deserve a prize for getting through this without pissing our pants in laughter, crying our eyes out in tears of sadness for those who actually believe this-- "is smitten with Santelli's Grecian good looks and is secretly in love with him...hell hath no fury like a woman scorned."
*Which, you know, is kinda standard when trying to book a guest.
