Welcome to the new CNBC critique thread!
CNBC has taken many turns, somewhat adapting to what it perceives to be its customer base and sometimes adapting to the changing face of the markets. While CNBC may have started out catering to short-term traders (as the original moderator of this thread wrote), it clearly does not do so today. IMHO CNBC has taken a new turn recently with the hiring of former Bloomberg reports (Dylan and Erin) and sidelining of CNBC long-timers Ted David and Ron Insana. CNBC jiggered the early morning Squawk Box show and shifted Mark Haines to the floor of the NYSE. These are just some of the recent changes.
Feel free to add your comments, thoughts, critiques, etc. but please be cordial. Because...
This thread is now moderated. At first we will allow some slack on what is posted here as long as it has some link to what is on CNBC. Spammers will get no warning. Others will be warned. Normal courtesy rules apply and if you're going to fight, please take it elsewhere.
And last, but certainly not least, we are honored and welcome the occasional contributions of the greatest anchor from CNBC... Ted David. Please no drooling or making a fool of yourself in front of Ted. Groupies need not apply. If we make this a serious thread (not too much bashing and not too much love) perhaps we can get more participation. Perhaps.
