  • Jim Grant Slams CNBC's Liesman 1 comment

    I don't watch CNBC for obvious reasons: it's usually a shoutfest with little information content, too many ads and very poor interview quality. (If you have Jim Grant for 10 minutes ask 2-3 good questions and SHUT UP! Please.)

Skip the boring ones and listen to the good ones you missed. They have a really good group of reporters there who ask intelligent questions and then listen to the answer, no interrupting.

    People tuned in to hear Jim Grant talk not Steve Liesman.The ego seems to do most of the talking.Liesman will wind up as a television station president somewhere in the Pacific Northwest.That's if his agent cares enough about Steve's " Career ".
