Interesting isn't it. I used to tune in CNBC every morning while preparing for work until I realized they were making news just to fill the void more often than not. The Dow would move 10 points and they'd have several segments explaining what that meant, when it was completely insignficant! The economic & business news you need will make it through to the mainstream media, the rest is mostly noise. I also never watch CNBC anymore. You need only watch Cramer for a few minutes to realize what CNBC has become - it's all the same, Cramer is just more animated than the others. CNBC is about as useful as the Home Shopping Network...both are an easy way to waste your $.
