    Pathetic tv on CNBC

    CNBC is awful - I wake they go to 3 minute commercial and then Becky Quack says, "we'll be right back with more from Jack Welch" - and I said, I must be in a commercial nightmare as I pinch myself! How insane, to have like 6 minutes of straight comericals...someone there have diarrhea???

    I plan to boycott as many of their advertisers as possible as I look for the remote to locate bloomberg or fox business!!!

    CNBCs favorite line - COMING UP!!!!

    • This morning it was Steny Hoyer, democrat, on the show.
      Becky said "Good point" , "I could not agree with you more" like she always does with democrats that propose higher taxes and posters on this board who go along with her agenda.

      • funny, I just received notification of a reply to this old post of mine on yahoo. Also, funny cause I just switched to a movie on Sundance channel cause the commercials time on cnbc and fox are driving me crazy! Remember the good ol days in the 70s when a commercial only lasted one minute! Just watch an episode of Seinfeld on tbs and notice how they cut it down to fit their overloaded commercial time slots! Absolutely amazing to me! And oh yeah,....I have never held an equity position in this stock or this space for that matter. Good luck!

    • Just this morning CNBC had a guy on that said going over the financial cliff would bring certainty and that would be a positive. Becky responded that was an opportunity for further discussion and appeared to be warming up to the idea!

    • Keep shorting comcast, I love your money...

    • Don't like it? Switch to another channel. Shouldn't be too hard for you to do.

    • Well today they broke for a commercial, then came back immediately to the set because the group continued talking. Howard Dean was blah, blahing about increasing taxes for everyone, cut back on government spending as a shared responsibility to paying off the US debts. Of course Becky loves the idea and said " finally a rational discussion". Well Becky, how about rolling back all the property taxes that have gone up since the Bush Tax Cuts? Why does Howard Dean want to suggest taxes on the middle class? Guess what Howard and Becky, you are rich and there is no more middle class. NBC needs to rid themselves of this pathetically immature reporter, Becky Quick like they did with the Today show gal, Ann Curry.
