For them to care if they're lying and spread of misinformation were wrong.... it would require integrity and character, those who run CNBC have neither.
They'll continue to connive during their broadcasts no matter what. They don't care about stock performance, thier shtick is selling entertainment veiled as investment advice. Obviously they could give 2 sheits about viewers making money or not.
Have to wonder why they are trying so hard with reporting not facts, but "spin". They tell you to buy when their hedge fund buddies such as Doug Kass want to sell, and tell you to sell when their buddies want to load up the truck before earnings. Famous stock trader from 1920s who made over $1 billion on the '29 Crash said: Don't listen to stock tips, and people who suggest you buy (when they want to sell... and vice versa...etc.). He said others don't leave money laying on tables for others to pick up. Doug Kass is on TV, and paid CNBC money to air his views, not to help the public, but to help himself: HE TELLS YOU TO BUY WHEN HE WANTS TO SELL, and VICE VERSA.
