    While Fox News has celebrated the Taxpayer Tea Party rallies and MSNBC has denigrated them, the impetus of the movement - CNBC and specifically Rick Santelli, its inspiration - had been conspicuously quiet about it. But on CNBC's "Squawk Box" April 15, co-host Joe Kernen asked Santelli what he thought of being a "cultural phenomenon." That was the same show Santelli famously called out President Barack Obama for the unfairness of his housing bailout proposal on Feb. 19. "A lot of articles about these tea parties," Kernen said. "They all have your name in them, like you caused it. Are...

    No one plans to dress up like Indians and dump tea into the James River, but a few Founding Fathers will be present when anti-tax protesters gather at Kanawha Plaza on April 15 to hold a "Tax Day Tea Party." Part of a nationwide movement, Richmond organizers have recruited hundreds of volunteers to conduct skits, listen to speeches and voice protests against high taxes and big government spending. Nationally, more than 300 such rallies are scheduled on April 15, according to the National Taxpayers Union. In Virginia, "tea party" rallies also are scheduled in Abingdon, Charlottesville, Franklin County, Lynchburg, Peninsula/Newport...

    Business and Media Institute ^ | April 1, 2009 | Jeff Poor
    With the economy suffering a steep downturn and a new hands-on approach by the federal government to correct it, financial news outlets have received increasing scrutiny. None more so than CNBC. The cable channel, along with its left-of-center sister network MSNBC, operates under the umbrella of NBC Universal. One openly liberal NBC network apparently isn’t enough. The left – from the White House to think tanks to bloggers – has targeted CNBC because of its traditional pro-investment point-of-view. After a few weeks of criticism, the network seems to be taking the criticism to heart and making a big left turn....

    Here is video from yesterday where liberal blogger Arianne Huffington went at it with CNBC's Rick Santelli over government bailouts and the responsibility of the individual. Santelli stood for individuals and banks being held accountable for the poor decisions they have made, and Huffington took the standard liberal bailout line. . . . . . (Watch Video)

    Both have loyal following, but their fans are on opposite sides of the political spectrum. CNBC's Rick Santelli rose to prominence earlier this year when he railed against President Barack Obama's policies on live TV from the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. He's a hit with conservatives staging tea parties to protest the bailout culture in Washington throughout the country. Arianna Huffington, who appeared as a guest host on CNBC's March 31 "Squawk Box" has following of left-wing readers and bloggers, as the editor of the very popular Huffington Post blog. The two faced off on "Squawk Box" about...

The intelectual vacuum of Ariana was on full display as she was totally exposed as a mental midget before the common sense real world observations and questions of Santelli. It was not a rebel yell, it was a surgical crushing. Santelli was asking the right questions and hitting the right points and Ariana was clueless in trying to push the usual left wing empty memes. Huffinton was 100% mentally unarmed. I have seen this with all her appearances. She is never prepared to hold her own in a contest of...

    Here is video of CNBC's Rick Santelli yesterday saying Americans should be far more outraged at the "B"illions being spent on bailouts than the "M"illions being spent on bonuses to AIG. Santelli also denounced the bonuses to AIG Executives, but he is pointing out how ridiculous it is to focus on the bonuses when it is really minuscule compared to the overall bailout. . . . . .

  • Jim Cramer: Skewered By Jon Stewart

    In the last two weeks, a Democrat and CNBC host, Jim Cramer, has suffered the wrath of his own political party in the same fashion as Joe the Plumber. This time, Jon Stewart of the Daily Show decided to attack Jim Cramer because Cramer dared to support Rick Santelli in his rant against Obama's unfocused resolution of the recession and the bailout of irresponsible borrowers. It was Joe the Plumber, in spades, all over again with Stewart focusing in on Cramer's stock picking faults and not on what he had said about Obama's policies. When it was all over, no...

    Commentary: The network was built on cheerleading and chattiness NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- CNBC has emerged as The Network We Love to Hate.Jon Stewart's scathing rebukes of the financial news network, one after another, on "The Daily Show" underline much of the public's anger toward Wall Street -- and CNBC, which many regard as the Street's virtual mouthpiece. And with that, the network now has the challenge of convincing the public that it's serving as a watchdog for investors, and not the establishment lapdog that it's seen to be. CNBC long has sought to identify with the powerbrokers of the...

    The Hill ^ | March 5, 2009 | Sam Youngman
    White House press secretary Robert Gibbs smiled and waved his hands when asked if he was ready to put an end to his battle with conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh. “If your enemies are fighting themselves, then don’t get in the way,” Gibbs said. Gibbs, in an interview with The Hill, acknowledged that the response was a “crude paraphrase” of a passage from Sun Tzu’s The Art of War. But given the former Senate aide’s penchant for battles, it’s not surprising he’s familiar with it. President Obama’s spokesman and confidant simply characterizes his battles with Limbaugh and CNBC commentators Rick...

    NEW YORK - CNBC chose not to fight back on Thursday following Jon Stewart’s brutal takedown of the network and its reporter, Rick Santelli, for backing out of an appearance on "The Daily Show." Stewart’s criticism of Santelli was reminiscent of David Letterman’s relentless attacks on Republican John McCain for canceling a "Late Show" appearance during the campaign last fall.

    Obama Vs. America Scott Wheeler Thursday, March 05, 2009 Obama has declared war on America. He says he is gearing up to fight anyone who disagrees with him. He has singled some of us out by name: Joe the Plumber, Rick Santelli and of course the mightiest voice among us, Rush Limbaugh. Rush, according to the latest Democrat strategy of marginalizing anyone who disagrees with them, is the leader of the Republicans. The Democrats say this because they need a face to represent the patriotic Americans that they are planning to attack. The Obama administration and the Democrats keep...

Rush, as the Democrats tell it, is the leader of Republicans. The Democrats say this because they need attach a face to represent the patriotic Americans that they are planning to attack.

    When you’re a popular leader with the occasional delusion of Godhood, how do you deal with people that oppose your policies and point out just how dangerous and demeaning they are? Don’t bother with facts or pussyfoot around with debates, no siree. You tell them to shut the hell up. And, in the unlikely event that they don’t shut their traps, you take measures to make them shut up. This is the strategy being employed by both President Obama of the United States and President Chavez of Venezuela. Neither men are really all that interested in numbers, facts, or reality...
