    One of the few genuine nationalist and honest anchors on financial networks.
    May His Soul Rest in Peace.

    Very surprising and sad news, he wasn't afraid to call B.S. artists out. Rest in peace.

    Mark Haines had a built-in BS meter and had no problem calling someone on it. He will be missed.

    Squawk Box started at about the same time I started on the Street. It's hard to imagine such a fixture of the financial world no longer there.

    A class act all the way.
    Condolences to his family.
    I will miss him. He was one of a rare breed on TV that would not stand for BS and would tell anyone who tried to snow him so flat out.

    Mark got me interested in business journalism, he really did call it like he saw it but did it in a way that didn't make you want to change the channel...not easy to find these days. May you rest in peace Mark.

    A true anchor in both senses of the word. His calmness in the typical hysteria of punditry will be missed. RIP, Mark, RIP.

    As some have already expressed, when I heard the news of Mark Haines' passing, it hit me as if I personally knew him. It was surreal. One of the few on that channel that I actually respected. RIP Mr. Haines.

    I am not a groupie or a fan of anyone but teared up when it was announced Mr. Haines had passed away. He was the best of all financial anchors - he never confused personal sentiment with analytical commentary, never mixed his own political feelings with the delivery of news or the questioning of guests. As CNBC slowly degenerated into a forum for Obama bashers, Mr.Haines would remind people the two biggest peacetime deficit spenders in history were Reagan and Bush Junior. When Barney Frank denied he pushed Fannie and Freddie into loosening lending standards too much, Mr. Haines did not laugh, he called up hard evidence that Frank had done so. His mere presence on the masthead kept some of the CNBC pundits in line. Perhaps his passing will serve to remind his co-workers the definition of the world "journalist." My wife, Jackie Judd, has won every possible award for broadcast journalism on the national level and she saw Mr. Haines in the same light. One day I wll leave a bag of Cheetos on his grave.

    Michael:

     

    You are right on. He did not play any politics and he stated as it is. He did not care the gues was Democrat, Republican, CEO, rich person or poor person. He treated equally to everybody. It is very difficult to find the person like that. I will miss him.

    My prayers go out to his family and friends. it's obvious people on Cnbc are having a hard time with the news. Just shows everyone that we're all mortal and can pass away when it is least expected.

    He was my guide through the morning of 9.11. In the stormy waters of that morning, he lived up to his job description: Anchor.
    Go with God.
