    CNN’s Erin Burnett found herself confronted with the idea of Rand Paul as a “rabid spider monkey,” after a guest on her show used the imagery to describe the Kentucky senator in a fight. While discussing the feud with Gov. Chris Christie, Burnett’s guest, Hogan Gidley, a former communications director for Rick Santorum pointed out that Rand Paul refused to be bullied. “What’s fascinating to me here is Rand Paul saying, bring it on and if you come at me, I’m going to come at you like a rabid spider monkey, and he hit him right in the face,” Gidley...

    CNN anchor Erin Burnett during an interview with former first lady Laura Bush that aired Monday posed a bit of a head-scratcher: Should we “accept” anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism “when we want to make change” in the Middle East? See for yourself [courtesy NewsBusters]: “An Egyptian woman, her name’s Samir Ibrahim, and she’s done a lot of things, courageous things. She’s also been criticized for sending tweets that are anti-Semitic, anti-American,” Burnnett said during a segment on the George W. Bush Institute’s Women’s Initiative Fellowship Program. “Does the U.S. need to accept that when we want to make change? You have...

    CNN's Erin Burnett tries to make the case that the Muslim vote is a key swing vote in the upcoming presidential election. "Muslims make up less than 1% of the population but there's big populations of Muslims in swing states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Virginia and they could turn the vote," Burnett said. "That sort of sounds like the Jewish conversation we were having a few months ago when it came up that 46% of the Jewish population that supported Barack Obama were not excited about voting for him this time. Could you see a small group like this making...

    Freshly arrived in my inbox from CNN, the very first clip of Burnett in her new gig as anchor — and it’s a huge boost to Democrats. Go figure. I’m tossing this out there because (a) you’re sure to hear this point debated tomorrow by economists various and sundry, so we might as well get the ball rolling, (b) you may very well see it touted by the Cut, Cap, and Balance crowd as proof that Boehner’s proposal needs to be bolder, and (c) Burnett herself seems justifiably skeptical that Reid’s plan gets us any closer to sustainability than Boehner’s...

    Here is video of CNBC's Jim Cramer being repeatedly attacked by guest analyst Sylvian Raines, as host Erin Burnett struggled to keep him in check. Raines kept insinuating that Cramer had been a "PR Rep" for Goldman Sachs, a charge Cramer disputed. Cramer said in response to the attacks, "I’ve blasted Goldman many times. I don’t need to hear that nonsense." When they came to a break, Burnett told viewers they would return, but said, "Sylvian will not be with us. You have to be more polite that that, Sylvian."

    Any time Erin Burnett tells a guest "You will not be back, you have to be more polite than that" you know the "guest" is telling the truth, the one commodity rarely if ever discussed on General Electric's circus station. Enter (or rather, exit) R&R Consulting's Sylvain Raynes, a structured finance expert, who at 3:10 into the clip takes on what he calls the "public relations officers" for Goldman, and asks "is it all right if I am a little critical?" Apparently the answer is no. First, Sylvain completely destroys Cramer's false "breaking news" about Goldman being long Abacus... And...

It seems that Erin comparing the situation in Iran to the impending Employee Free Choice Act, labor's favorite piece of legislation, during her "Stop Trading" segment with Jim Cramer. After Erin's comemnts yesterday, the SEIU instructed its members to bombard Burnett and Cramer with emails pilloring her “irresponsible journalism” and “reckless reporting.” SEIU says that thousands of emails have been sent.

    CNBC's Erin Burnett and Joe Scarborough had the following exchange on Monday's edition of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC: SCARBOROUGH: They tell me though it's all legal ... all legal. BURNETT: Of course it is. SCARBOROUGH: There's a big difference between tax avoidance and being an all out tax cheat. BURNETT: That's right. Isn't it your obligation in this country, there is a tax code for a reason, to take advantage of every bit of it you can and pay as little as you can.

    Could this be another case of a chastened CNBC succumbing to criticism from the left to improve its image? Just a day after CNBC named former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean a CNBC contributor, an uncharacteristically soft-spoken CNBC "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer, appeared on NBC's March 24 "Today" along with CNBC "Squawk on the Street" co-host and "Street Signs" host Erin Burnett. In a tone similar to the apologetic one he had earlier this month on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," he complimented President Barack Obama's rhetoric toward high executive compensation.

    In the wake of the American International Group (AIG) bonus controversy, some have called the plans of congressional leaders to tax those bonuses at a rate of 90-100 percent "legislating with a vengeance." However, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., insists that doing this is a necessity, despite the premise that retroactively taxing anything is a dangerous precedent. In an interview with CNBC "Squawk on the Street" co-hosts Mark Haines and Erin Burnett on March 19, he explained different rules apply in these extraordinary circumstances. "When you violate the public trust, different rules apply...

    That’s Erin Burnett holding up a $100 billion Zimbabwe bill. It will buy you about three eggs. Could the USA be on the road to becoming the next Zimbabwe? Very doubtful. But the threat of high inflation is very real, and that’s what prompted Erin to display the bill during her Morning Joe appearance today. The CNBCer was responding to Joe Scarborough’s questioning about the inflationary risk of the government’s decision, announced yesterday, to create $1 trillion out of thin air that it will use to buy Treasury bonds and mortgage securities.

Suddenly, I find myself in the center of a firestorm over Obama's economic policies, taking enfilading fire from the "liberal" media (from serious columnist Frank Rich to entertainer Jon Stewart) while being defended by Rush Limbaugh, the standard-bearer for the Republicans. I'm uncomfortable being in the crosshairs of columnists and comedians I enjoy, and I find the embrace of Rush Limbaugh most certainly strange if not antithetical to many of my...

    Don't blame Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., member of two influential banking committees - the Senate Finance Committee and the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs - for IndyMac's collapse, says CNBC's Erin Burnett. Burnett, host of CNBC "Street Signs," disagreed with a claim by MSNBC "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough that a letter to regulators from Schumer caused a run on the beleaguered bank IndyMac, which eventually led to its failure and takeover by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. "I don't think Chuck Schumer caused a run on the bank," Burnett said on MSNBC's July 24 "Morning Joe." "This...

    Dear Sir/Madam: I am sure that MSNBC is facing a firestorm of criticism over Erin Burnett's characterization of the President of the United States as a "monkey". This letter is sent in order to join the chorus of protest over this vile, degrading slur directed at the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States during wartime. Her half-hearted "apology" which she delivered recently was completely inadequate to remedy this situation. If any news reporter said the same thing about any Democrat, they would be gone yesterday. I am demanding that Erin Burnett be fired, immediately. The head of...

The video on YouTube has over 60,000 views. Today, on Hardball, she apologized to President Bush. "Earlier this week I was on MSNBC, on Morning Joe, and I made a bad attempt at humor...I said something stupid, I just want to make sure I apologize if I offended anyone. I do have the upmost respect for the President, I hope he has a great weekend, and Chris, I hope...

They are indeed co-workers as they both work for the same parent company. http://youtube.com/watch?v=xKBDOLdU-Ug&mode=related&search= Granted, Mathews’ speech is slurred and his face is quite red so we could give him the benefit of the doubt and postulate that he had a few too many cocktails at lunch time; however, being inebriated on the job wouldn’t exactly mitigate the circumstance.
