    As we near the midterm elections, left-wingers will be reading from the same tired playbook – the attempted marginalization of the Tea Party movement, but just more of it. But more and more, they are discovering the tactics are tougher to defend, as their side has their own fringe, loose-cannon elements. On CNBC’s Sept. 29 “Squawk Box,” hosts Joe Kernen and Michelle Caruso-Cabrera went after Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell for what seems to be hypocrisy – a willingness to attack one side for extremism, while ignoring extreme elements on the left. Rendell was asked by Kernen to elaborate on remarks...

    We’ve all heard about the CNBC Saturday September 18, 2010 Obama Town hall meeting that the Wall Street Journal called a therapy session for disillusioned Soetoro supporters. Charles Krauthammer in his own no nonsense indomitable way, pulls back the curtain on the man whose mother was born in Kansas. Well we’re a long ways from Kansas and Barry Hussein Soetoro’s town hall meeting entitled, “Investing in America” was but a partisan attempt to defend the failed economic policies of his administration. However just like his failed trillion-dollar stimulus and economic policies, this so-called town hall meeting was a miserable PR...

    While certain executives at News Corp. may not agree, it is obvious that at the moment, the top business news channel on Wall Street is CNBC. With that in mind director Oliver Stone prominently features the network's anchors prominently in the upcoming sequel to his 1987 film "Wall Street." This despite the fact that the film is produced by the 20th Century Fox film studio, a sister company to Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network.

    President Obama will answer questions about the economy at a town hall meeting that is scheduled to air at 12:00 PM on CNBC today. Obama has been working overtime to defend his administration's record on the economy, firing back at Republicans who want to blame Democrats for the bad economy. The President has been on the offensive over the past few weeks, accusing GOP lawmakers of blocking key aid to small businesses and tax cuts for the middle class.

    CNBC ^ | 9/17/10 | Jeff Cox
    The third time may well be the proverbial charm for Lou Barletta and his quixotic bid to unseat veteran Democratic Rep. Paul Kanjorski. Kanjorski, the influential senior Financial Services Committee member and frequent “Squawk Box” guest on CNBC, is fighting nothing less than a legacy-challenging battle to keep his seat. Kanjorski was instrumental in putting together this year’s financial reform legislation, particularly the areas that addressed the too-big-to-fail institutions that triggered the credit crisis. So his seat is a biggie in terms of the Washington governmental structure. As a 13-term incumbent representing northeastern Pennsylvania, Kanjorski had been breezing through election...

"People ask me if I'm the father of the Tea Party movement," the CNBC commentator said outside the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. "I was the spark ...that started it.

    This could confirm what many suspected all along - the corporate heads at General Electric (NYSE:GE) would try to use their media holdings to portray President Barack Obama and his administration in a positive light in order to gain a corporate advantage. That's how former CNBC reporter and current Fox Business Network senior correspondent Charlie Gasparino explains it in his forthcoming book, "Bought and Paid For: The Unholy Alliance Between Barack Obama and Wall Street."

    To many, it's hardly a revelation to most, but when someone keeps taking the same action over and over again, even to his detriment, it can reveal a lot about that individual's belief system. This was an observation CNBC "Squawk Box" host Joe Kernen made about the Obama administration's willingness to embrace a populist "soak the rich" tactic against the wealthy in the United States, even though it isn't winning him favor with the American people, according to opinion polling. A new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows more people now think President Barack Obama's policies have hurt the economy than...

    It is a curious phenomenon - the way the media have handled the economy since President Barack Obama has taken office. Generally the coverage has been on the optimistic side over the last 18 months. But could this blind optimism come back to haunt people that trade on economic metrics?

On CNBC's Aug. 26 broadcast of "Street Signs," Cramer predicted dismal numbers during his "Stop Trading" segment, which has been contrary to the...

On the network's June 24 broadcast of "Strategy Session," the CME Group reporter explained how the country could be headed down the same path and face the economic calamity the Japanese faced in what is known as the "lost decade."

    The media reaction to the Obama administration's handling of the BP Gulf oil spill crisis has been a mixed bag. But it hasn't been good. Some are arguing President Barack Obama has gone too far and overstepped his legal authority and some are arguing he hasn't gone far enough with the "boot on the throat" mentality. And on his June 17 Fox News Channel program, Glenn Beck played three separate examples of these differences you normally wouldn't associate with one another - CNBC's Matt Nesto, liberal flame-thrower and comedian Rosie O'Donnell and MSNBC's Ed Schultz.

    Market dynamics suggest that the bear is close at hand. Aggressive late-day selling that has punctuated wild market swings since the April 23 highs is one of the hallmarks of a bear market. Market pros are noting the erratic behavior and bracing for more damage after the market's historic 81 percent rally from its March 2009 lows and its 13 percent retracement since then. The change is noteworthy, even if investors aren't nearly as panicked as they were before the S&P hit its intraday low of 666 on March 6, 2009. Other analysts believe that even if the market does...

Well, it may not be "womb-to-tomb" yet, but he's certainly creating a welfare state for Americans beyond their mid-20s. On CNBC's April 12 "Squawk Box," the network's Washington correspondent John Harwood was outlining what he perceived to be the more positive aspects of ObamaCare, specifically extending how long a one can remain on their parents' insurance policy and whether or not someone can be disqualified for pre-existing conditions.

    It's been proven time and again in over two hundred years of recorded American history, but some people still don't get it - the government is not the most efficient spender of money. On CNBC's March 4 "Squawk Box," in the midst of reporting jobless claims and productivity data, the network's senior economics reporter Steve Liesman offered the suggestion that since some banks were increasing their stock dividend, more lending might be on the way. That could be a sign the economy is coming around, but "Squawk Box" co-host warned it could also mean banks want to pay out dividends...

    President Obama continuously tries to portray himself as a friend to the little-man, middle class and small business. Hence his attacks on "fat cats" who "just don't get it," while labeling the extravagant bonuses as "obscene," and "the height of irresponsibility." Meanwhile, members of his administration, in defending a sweeping small-business aid program Obama announced in his State of the Union, give reason to wonder if they really understand how to help small business. Among the administration's proposals for small businesses are a $5,000 tax credit to hire new workers, elimination of capital gains taxes, and new incentives to invest...

    One year ago this week, tens of thousands of patriots held "tea parties" in 40 cities in protest of government expansion, bailouts and the stimulus package, launching a nationwide movement – and now those citizens are regrouping and heading back to the streets to "recharge the movement" Saturday. Feb. 27 marks the one-year anniversary of the first round of protests following CNBC analyst Rick Santelli speech against President Obama's proposed bailout plan and other massive spending measures.

    Well, CNBC's Media and Technology Editor, Dennis Kneale, is only the latest to jump my little "Unions are Antithetical to Good Government" bandwagon. Kneale slams Obama's "unholy alliance" with Big Labor and proclaims it a danger to the country. He couldn't be more right. Here is the article: "Obama's Unholy Union-With Unions" Here are a few choice quotes... Read the rest at

    So, you want to know who "really" started the Tea Party movement? Well, it wasn't Sarah Palin. It wasn't Ron Paul either. It certainly wasn't the Republicans (although the socialist Democrats would have you believe there's some sort of GOP conspiracy). It wasn't Fox News and it wasn't even Alex Jones. It seems these days there are a lot of people claiming to be the first to have started the Tea Party movement. I'll tell you right now that none of those people were. You see, I actually do my homework. If you want to get real specific, the Tea...

    CNBC Anchors Freak Out After Marc Faber Says US Will Default Joe Weisenthal Feb. 10, 2010, 4:57 PM It's hard for Marc Faber to top himself, since he maintains such a cataclysmic outlook. Still, in today's discussion about Greece and general sovereign risks, we were very entertained by the reaction of the Power Lunch crew when Faber delivered the bad news that the US will one day, just like the others, default on its debt. Listen right at the 2:15 mark.[snip]

    Last night's CNBC original documentary "Business Model: Inside the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue" performed poorly in the ratings. The 9pmET premiere drew just 100K viewers in the A25-54 demo. The re-air at 10pmET drew 70K. "Disappointing," an insider tells us. In Total Viewers the show drew 310K at 9pm and 147K at 10pm. In contrast, CNBC's oft-aired "Marijuana Inc." doc scored nearly 7 times the younger viewers (696K) when it premiered last January. "Swimsuit" will air again Friday night at 9pmET and Midnight, as well as on Monday (President's Day) at 9amET and 8pmET.

    As the old cliché goes, you don't use a sledgehammer to crack a nut, but according to Rick Santelli, that's exactly what it appears the Obama administration is doing terms of financial regulation and fiscal discipline. On CNBC's Feb. 2 broadcast of "Fast Money," host Melissa Lee proposed that taxing the wealthy is not the path to "economic prosperity and fiscal stability." Santelli, the network's CME Group floor reporter, agreed. "Well, you're right," Santelli said. "But I also think you're going to see when the Bush tax cuts expire, a lot of middle class write-offs and exemptions and various tax...
