Quote

Former Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) is joining CNBC as a contributor.

CNBC's managing editor Nick Dunn tweeted Friday that the former congressman and prickly liberal firebrand had joined the channel.

    Pleased to announce former US Congressman @BarneyFrank has joined @CNBC as our latest contributor.

Frank, who served as the chairman of the Financial Services Committee when he was in Congress, once stormed off the set of CNBC after a heated exchange with the channel's Mark Haines. Haines and Frank were discussing limiting executive compensation.

"It seems to be that you're dealing with a model that no longer works," Haines said referring to Frank's proposal for changing executive pay rules. The conversation escalated and after Frank repeatedly tried to interject he ended the interview.

Am I the only one noticing that increasingly the title is repeated over and over in the first lines of these "journalism stories?"

tweeting and retweeting and posting others' tweets, adds little or no content.

Counting the title it is stated five times, here.

There is a limit to what you can add with the 140 character limit.

Especially when you don't have much to say, but feel compelled to make it look otherwise.

Why put Bawney Fwank on TV? No one can understand him.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

CNBC?  Really?  What does this idiot know about money, other than how to spend someone else's?
