Squawk's Dishonorable Media Circus
Is anyone else blown away by the new low to which the financial media has sunk? I just flipped on CNBC to get a live gold quote, and thought I was catching C-Span-like coverage of a Congressional hearing on the economy .... only to discover that it's actually the Squawk anchors sitting below the participating reps in a collective interview designed to mimic a congressional hearing.
If I'm not mistaken, the panelists were just caught on tape playing make-believe ... pretending to be representatives of the people.
Oh great oracles of our financial future sitting up on high, please grace us peasant-folk with your mighty plans for dressing a compound fracture with a band-aid!
What an unbelieveable circus act! I feel nauseous.
Whatever it takes to keep the thin veil of optimistic spin lain over an untenable financial quagmire...
We don't need our media to place politicians on a pedestal for us, they're plenty proficient at doing that for themselves.
