Watch closely. Watch a segment of CNBC when they are leading to a commercial, right when they hint about the next “exciting” segment that will air once the commercial is over. Those segments headed into commercial are “scripted”. CNBC on air talent are reading the teleprompter. You can tell. And sadly, as you watch Erin Burnett (and others) read “exciting” lead out spin, her body language is screaming that she is not comfortable trying to constantly put lipstick on the pig of dead stock markets. She seems to be saying, “I can’t believe I have to pump up a stock market that is sinking. I can’t believe I have to say things that are clearly not true.” And for those wondering, I do indeed flip on CNBC a few times a day. I have to. The material provided from their zaniness gives me so many opportunities to skewer insanity!
