    CNBC ^ | June 30th, 2015 | Mark Macias, media consultant
    In business, you fear the person who has nothing to lose and everything to gain because he will fight you till the end. In politics, you fear the person who has everything to lose and nothing to gain, especially if he has totalitarian control. These general principals are why NBC and every GOP presidential candidate should be very fearful right now of Donald Trump. He won't play by the rules in politics because he has run a totalitarian regime. He will also fight till the end because he wrongfully believes he has nothing to lose in business. The proof for...

    I don't know about for you, but for me, the most inspiring interview of the week occurred when CNBC's John Harwood interviewed presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders. It generated a couple of thoughts in my head that I'm confident will be game changers. I'm secretly hoping that the Sanders team will offer me a job as their Chief Economic Consultant, as a result. Here was the part of the exchange that really got my carbon-neutral cruelty-free non-fossil-fueled engine running: Harwood: If the changes that you envision in tax policy, in finance, breaking up the banks, were to result in a more...

    As we have seen many times in the past, CNBC Chief Washington correspondent John Harwood has been reliably liberal. In fact just a few hours ago, Newsbusters ran a story featuring Harwood once again spinning for Hillary Clinton. Therefore it is notable when even a team player such as Harwood gets so upset with the content free Hillary "briefing" that he breaks out in one snarky paragraph after another. Perhaps the Hillary campaign thinks it is a cute idea to cut reporters off from any meaningful information but when it causes someone like Harwood to go full out snark, perhaps...

    This week Vermont Senator and self-avowed socialist Bernie Sanders sat down with CNBC’s John Harwood for an interview on the issues facing all the 2016 candidates. Sanders is technically running for President, and is at least keeping up the public appearance of being serious. (He told Harwood, I think we got a shot to win this thing.) With that in mind, I suppose it’s worth taking a moment to examine some of his answers and remind everyone exactly what’s lurking under the covers of the deep left wing of the Democrats. While it may seem like a bit of...

    Greece's pleas to stop the "fiscal waterboarding" of its devastated economy are substantively no different from President Obama's repeated warnings to Germany to stop bleeding the euro area economy with excessive fiscal austerity. Sadly, the president's reportedly more than a dozen phone calls to the German Chancellor Merkel in 2011 and 2012 urging supportive economic policies in the euro area fell on deaf ears. These calls were not just brushed aside; they were plainly ridiculed as Chancellor Merkel kept telling the media that "it made no sense to be adding new debt to old debt." But -- worrying about one-fifth...

    In earlier time, the death of Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud would have rocked the oil market. The succession plan has always pointed in a direction away from U.S. interests and a turn toward an even harder line on Middle East issues. The antipathy toward Iran will be levered up, and the various Sunni-Shia battles will likely see greater escalation. Oil prices have quickly jumped $1.00 per barrel on the news in a knee-jerk reaction to the uncertainty. What is more likely is an even greater commitment to over supplying the market, in attempt to drive out...

    During Wednesday night's presidential debate, Newt Gingrich could barely restrain his amusement as co-moderator Maria Bartiromo defended the liberal media's reporting of the economy. Bartiromo took umbrage after Gingrich's asserted, "What is amazing to me is the inability of much of our academic world and much of our news media and most of the people on Occupy Wall Street to have a clue about history." The CNBC journalist responded by huffing, "I'm sorry, but what is the media reporting inaccurately about the economy?" An incredulous Gingrich mocked, "I love humor disguised as a question. That's terrific." [ See video below....

    If the commodity markets were followed as widely as the stock market, the financial world would be buzzing with the news of a crash that has taken place in the value of "stuff." While the plunging prices of oil, natural gas and gasoline are making headlines every day, thanks to the benefits accruing to consumers of energy products, the message of the commodity markets, in many ways, is hardly a reassuring one when it comes to the outlook for global economic growth. Basic materials prices for the likes of copper, nickel, iron ore, and other industrial commodities, have collapsed, both...

Todayís article by Chris Cillizza tries to misdirect the issue into a personality conflict between Gruber and Conservatives who he thinks are the object of Gruberís charge that the American people are stupid. His article, about Gruber as catnip for conservatives tries to make the story about Conservative pique, not the fact that Gruber did something that you are never supposed to do when you pull a sting: expose the sting. A good sting never ends, but Gruber ended the ObamaCare sting. So the press, after hoping it would...

    There is no case for an American Ebola czar, least of all another political "fixer" who has no expertise in public health. This is just another case of the Obama administration putting politics before substance, and cowering at the idiocy and vileness of the Republicans in Congress. We already have an enormously competent national Ebola leader: Tom Frieden at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We already have an enormously competent coordinator for U.S. Ebola aid overseas: Raj Shah, the Administrator of USAID. What we need now is a president who backs up his front-line team.

    Earlier this week, Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) went on CNBC last Friday to debate the Glass-Steagall banking regulations that were adopted in 1933, and her proposal to update and strengthen the law in a way that would likely force the big banks to spin off some of their business and stop being so damn big. As you can imagine, CNBC is no fan of Glass Steagall, regulating banks, or Elizabeth Warren. During her appearance on CNBC, Warren basically kicked ass, the video went viral, with over 700,000 views in a matter of days, so CNBC pulled it. Hereís what...

    The latest Nielsen ratings show that business network CNBC is in a ratings free fall. By some measures the cable channel is experiencing its lowest numbers since 1994. Particularly hard hit are Jim Cramerís Mad Money and Larry Kudlowís show, The Kudlow Report. Kudlowís is showing the worst ratings declines year over year of any program in the network, and keep in mind, the network itself is once again suffering a big ratings slide. The Kudlow Reportís numbers have fallen 60% in the last year. I wish all of this would have come as a surprise to me, but it...

    Nowhere is [the result of mainstream media bias] more obvious than in the relentless imploding viewership of once financial media titan, CNBC, which lately has become a sad, one-sided caricature of its once informative self, whose only agenda is to get the most marginal Joe Sixpack to dump his hard-earned cash into 100x P/E stocks, and where according to data from Nielsen Media Research, the total and demographic (25-54) viewership during the prime time segment (9:30am - 5:00 pm) just tumbled to 216K and 40K - the lowest recorded viewership since mid 2005 and sliding. So why the relentless collapse...

    How are white male managers doing when it comes to diversity? Great! At least that's what the white male managers said in a recent survey. What do the non-white, non-male managers think? Not as upbeat. But according to the study, it's not entirely the fault of white male managers. What we have here, it claims, is failure to communicate. Lack of candor was a key culprit identified in the "Study on White Men Leading Through Diversity & Inclusion," which compiled results of anonymous surveys of about 700 leaders at eight major companies. How are white male managers doing when it...

    What do "Big Rig Bounty Hunters" and "Swamp People" on History Channel have in common? They both pummeled CNN and MSNBC's brand new shows' debuts last week in the ratings. CNN's attempt to mimic Fox News' hugely successful "The Five" with a five person panel show called (get to) The Point" seems to have crashed and burned in spectacular fashion. The week-long tryout at 10:00 PM ET, in place of an Anderson Cooper repeat, was dead last in cable news ratings, finishing behind CNNHLN and CNBC.

    CNBC host Joe Kernen took House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) to task Friday over the Republican Party's opposition to same-sex marriage. In a rare discussion of social issues on the financial news program "Squawkbox," Kernen argued that the GOP has squandered its appeal with fiscally conservative voters by virtue of its opposition to gay nuptials. Cantor said some people, himself included, have legitimate religious objections to same-sex marriage. ďThere are those of us who have personal religious convictions about the issue," Cantor said. "And I think that we as a country need to respect people about their opinion, not...
