hp6sa: Rants aside, it is kind of amusing that Santelli had predicted about 10 months ago that the Dept of Labor would release unemployment numbers just below 8% right before the election... which came true.


Trends. How do they work?

SlothB77: This is going to go the same way the Benghazi thing went:

1) Obama admin lies
2) GOP: it's a conspiracy
3) Liberal media/ Fark: calling this a conspiracy is ridiculous. The GOP is just playing politics right before an election.
4) GOP: we found all this evidence of a conspiracy
5) Liberal Media/ Fark/ Dems/ Obama Admin: Oh shiate
6) Hillary Clinton: I take the blame for those lies. (ok, in this case it would be a different scapego-, er-, secretary, but you get the point)

you got caught again, dems. you coulda gone with 8.0 or 7.9, but you got greedy. gonna be hard to defend 7.8%. That's too big a jump, no matter how you manipulate the numbers.


This is what Virginians actually believe.

I find it amusing that "Things are starting to look better for America! This is an outrage!!" has become a rallying cry for Republicans.

Suck it, America-haters.

This isn't informative, it's entertainment. As entertainment, it's dumb.

DivorceWar Veteran: I'll stick to my Bloomberg. Less drama, more information.


This. The difference in style (and substance) between Bloomberg and CNBC is stark. Heck, even Bloomberg radio vs. CNBC (on SiriusXM, the CNBC channel is the audio from the channel) reveals very, very different tones and styles. I think of CNBC like a tabloid for business news. Short interviews, always trying to BS to come up with reasons why the market is up or down on a particular day, etc. Bloomberg can be quite dry at times, but I prefer it that way when the alternative is like tabloid business news for hyperactive children.

This regime also claims inflation is 1.7% as evidenced by the new COLA for SS. Never mind that gasoline costs have doubled in less than 4 years...



And two tacos from Jack in the Box have been $.99 for as long as I can remember, clearly there is no inflation.

I also like how the unemployment rate has been trending down for the last two years but it's a fraud that the trend continued down to some artificially declared point. The interview/screaming match just goes to prove that Rick had absolutely no proof of the "fraud." He provided no evidence, just a feeling. Well those of us that live outside of the GOP echo chamber over here in reality, require some sort of evidence before we even entertain wild ass conspiracy theories.

Video needs more Becky Quick

and definitely more Maria Bartiromo. Every CNBC video should have a Maria Bartiromo segment.

Please, the elder Bush's administration cooked up a ridiculous GDP number right before the 92 election. This is not unheard-of territory. There are just more outlets for screeching party parrots to blame the other side.

Is this how CNBC normally is? I stopped watching in 2000.

It would be a story if Rick Santelli had his sh*t together for once.
