    It's a conversation, Barney, not a soliloquy . . . Discussing the regulation of executive pay with CNBC's Mark Haines today, the testy liberal Dem from Massachusetts was affronted when Haines tried to get in a word edgewise. Before long, Barney announced that the interview was over, and ripped off his earpiece. Unruffled, Haines got off a good last line: "Fine, goodbye sir. We'll manage without you." View video here.

    It's the latest ailment of the left - CNBC derangement syndrome. Since CNBC's Rick Santelli and Jim Cramer took an outspoken stance on the shortcomings of the Obama administration, left-wing storefronts have been popping up all over the place wanting to capitalize on the network after it took a vicious attack from Comedy Central "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart. After CNBC "Squawk on the Street" co-host Mark Haines took on a couple of sanctimonious Democratic congressmen, Reps. Brad Sherman, Calif., and Charles Rangel, N.Y., for being advocates of a 90-percent retroactive tax on bonuses, he has found himself as...

    For the second day in a row, CNBC "Squawk on the Street" co-host Mark Haines took on a Democratic congressman over the issue that American International Group (AIG) paid out too much in bonuses for a company that received federal bailout money. On March 19, Haines took on alleged tax cheat Charles Rangel, questioning whether or not he should be dictating tax policy while the House Ethics Committee investigates him for his tax problems. On CNBC's March 20 "Squawk on the Street," Haines took on Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif. on the issue. Sherman contended the 90-percent tax on bonuses exceeding...

    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...

    Here is video of CNBC's Mark Haines on Morning Joe today, where he called liberal blogger Arianna Huffington "clueless" about her call for the government to stop protecting the equity holders in banks. Haines correctly says Huffington "doesn't know what she is talking about." It's refreshing to hear someone be so direct and honest! . . . . . . . (Watch Video)

    I don’t claim to have a sure-fire solution for the economy. But I’m pretty confident there’s something certain to prop up pay-per-view ratings: a steel cage match between Arianna Huffington and Mark Haines. The pair put in separate appearances on Morning Joe. After the never-shy Huffington called on the government to stop “protecting the equity holders” in banks, Haines came on and called Huffington “clueless” and suggested “in the future, you might want to get someone who knows what they’re talking about.” He pointed out that, contrary to Arianna’s claim, equity holders in the banks have been “destroyed.” As you’ll...
