    Disney and Twenty-First Century Fox are closing in on a deal, and it could come as soon as next week, according to sources familiar with the matter. CNBC has been reporting that Disney has held talks with the Rupert Murdoch-controlled media company to acquire its studio and television production assets, leaving Fox with its news and sports assets. Fox is also talking with CNBC parent company Comcast, but the talks with Disney have progressed more significantly.
  • GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander on Amnesty: ‘I Would Vote for it Again’

    GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander told CNBC that he will vote again for an amnesty, even though his vote for the Democratic-led 2013 amnesty bill helped demolish his establishment GOP peers during the 2016 primaries and election. “We need a legal immigration system, and we need to put that behind us,” he told CNBC’s John Harwood. “We tried to do it in 2013; I voted for it. It would’ve solved many of the problems … I would vote for it again.”
  • CNBCs own 'Dr. Doom' Faber: 'Thank God white people populated America'

    Market doomsayer Marc "Dr. Doom" Faber has launched a racially charged diatribe in his latest newsletter, alleging that the U.S. is great primarily because it is ruled by white people. The eccentric Gloom, Boom & Doom report author, who often speaks on CNBC and other financial media, generally forecasting some type of market downturn, focused his latest comments on the racial conflicts happening around the country. (A CNBC spokesperson said it will not book him in the future.) "And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look...

    Let's face it, and let's say what needs to be said, President Trump has rhetorically crossed the Rubicon. His jabbering has jumped the shark. His public pronouncements have passed the point of no return. We are now beyond debating whether this president's policies have merit or whether he intends to "make America great again." Having said that, his health-care and tax-reform proposals, such as they are, have not been sufficiently vetted, nor scored, and may well hurt the people he promised to help and would likely do more harm to the economy than good. The courts have blocked his immigration...

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's scientific integrity watchdog is reviewing whether EPA chief Scott Pruitt violated the agency's policies when he said in a television interview he does not believe carbon dioxide is driving global climate change, according to an email seen by Reuters on Friday. Lawyers for environmental group the Sierra Club had asked the EPA's Office of Inspector General to check whether Pruitt violated policy when he told a CNBC interviewer on March 9, "I would not agree that it's a primary contributor to the global warming that we see." The EPA Inspector General's office responded to the...

    John Harwood is the CNBC journalist who advised Hillary’s campaign on how to handle Ben Carson and later bragged to Hillary campaign chairman John Podesta about the rude questions he posed to Donald Trump during a debate. Harwood's attacks on Republican candidates as a moderator of a Republican primary debate were met with near-universal mockery. . . . Harwood claimed that Republicans are “radically opposed to government itself” and asserted that “governing is about taking action to solve people’s problems.” View the video here.

    Manhattan Contrarian ^ | 11 Mar, 2017 | Francis Menton
    On Thursday, new EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt appeared on CNBC's "Squawk Box," and made a statement that has gotten a lot of attention. The statement was: "I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there's tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact, so, no, I would not agree that it's a primary contributor to the global warming that we see." I would have said that that statement was just a rather obvious truism. I mean, we have an enormously complex climate system, affected by literally dozens of factors, many of...
  • Fox Business surges in ratings competition with CNBC

    02/28/2017 4:21:49 PM PST · by RoosterRedux · 31 replies
    Fox Business Network topped CNBC in viewership during the business day for the fifth consecutive month, an illustration of dramatic growth at an upstart network that began operation a decade ago. FBN averaged 218,000 viewers during the hours between 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. in February, an increase of 59 percent over February 2016. CNBC, meanwhile, dropped from 212,000 to 182,000 in the same measurement, Nielsen Media Research said. That's a startling change for a marketplace where CNBC was once considered the unquestioned leader. But CNBC has suggested those raw numbers are deceptive: the network stopped using Nielsen as a...

    CNBC cited the left-wing, George Soros-linked PolitiFact to condemn President Donald Trump’s claims Thursday that Hillary Clinton’s State Department presided over the sale of 20 percent of U.S. uranium to Russia.“Hillary Clinton gave away 20 percent of the uranium in the United States; she’s close to Russia,” Trump said during the press conference.“The claim isn’t true,” CNBC energy reporter Tom DiChristopher wrote. “PolitiFact pointed out that 20 percent of uranium capacity is different from 20 percent of existing uranium. Moreover, the State Department was one of nine government agencies that had to sign off on the deals. Other federal and state regulators also had...

The fact-checking website PolitiFact has determined that statement, which Trump first made on the campaign trail, is mostly false.

    CNBC ^ | 19 JAN 17 | John W. Schoen
    When he takes the oath of office Friday, President-elect Donald Trump will carry with him a massive web of potential conflicts of interest not seen in modern American history. The next president's ethical quandary is the result of his refusal to divest himself of a sprawling network of more than 500 properties that he has amassed in more than three decades as a celebrity entrepreneur. At a long-awaited news conference last week, Trump dismissed the potential conflicts after his attorney laid out the broad outlines of a plan to separate himself from the day-to-day operations of his businesses. The plan...

    The growth rate of America’s gross domestic product might rise by more than 200 percent by 2018 under President-elect Donald Trump's economic plan, according to a new analysis. CNBC cites a Deutsche Bank forecast that claims Trump’s economy-boosting agenda could drive 2.4 percent growth in 2017 and 3.6 percent in 2018. Under President Barack Obama, the economy grew by an average of 1.6 percent during his eight years in office. CNBC noted Obama is the first president since Herbert Hoover who has not overseen the economy grow by at least 3 percent in one year of their administrations. The Deutsche...

    In a month that saw its 9th anniversary, FBN also marked another milestone: its first win ever over rival CNBC in total viewers for a full month. With heavy emphasis on the 2016 election, FBN averaged 170,000 total viewers (vs. 164,000 for CNBC) for business day, giving FBN its most-watched month ever and up 67 percent vs. October 2015. CNBC won the advertiser-friendly A25-54 demo (33,000 vs. 22,000). But FBN saw growth in the demo (+38 percent), while CNBC lost demo viewers (-35 percent) vs. October 2015.

    Once you’ve been outed, you’re on your own with nothing left of your credibility and no friends either in media or politics who give a damn about you There are some long faces at disgraced business network CNBC these days, a palpable sense of having lost what flimsy mask of objectivity they had left. Sure, they’re still doing their thing, completely in the tank for the Clintons and the Democrat party but having been exposed as utter fakes has sucked the air of the network on-air people. They’re just going through the motions.

    Since WikiLeaks began releasing once-private messages from Hillary Clinton campaign chief John Podesta, the world has had even more access to hard evidence of the mainstream media’s support for and collusion with Democratic Party operatives and campaigns. The latest example, reported now for the very first time (as are we can tell), shows CNBC’s Rebecca Quick — the co-host of the channel’s popular show Squawk Box and a co-moderator with John Harwood at a 2015 Republican primary debate — promising to support Sylvia Mathews Burwell, who had just been named the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services....
