cnbc hates it when someone else does better reporting and breaks the story, especially a smaller outfit that takes its work and reporting seriously ... naturally, cnbc, guided by its own self-interest, tries to dig up some 'source' of their own to refute it. They are more interested in their own glamour then the real story, in this long-time observer's opinion. They ain't no NY Times, or W. Post. that's for sure, and will continue being beat to the story, is my own view.
agreed, cnbc doesn't report the news, they manipulate it. they report what's in their best interest to further themselves. Faber will probably come out with a news story in the next day or so from a "source very close to the negotiations" as he always seems to say. A month from now CNBC will be able to rollout a commercial on how David reported it first. The only time CNBC really reported it first was the other year when Maria tricked Bernake into saying something at a dinner. Even then, CNBC waited until the last hour of the trading session for the report. Meanwhile the market took a large gain into the negative before she reported it. Who do you think traded on it prior to her "breaking the news" from the night before!?
not a chance. read the tea leaves boys and girls. cnbc is being diligent in that they are just repeating what their sources are saying. MSFT is mum. hahahahahahahahhhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaah
