CNBC, petition, stewart, cramer, journalism, reporting, financial
Sign the petition to turn CNBC into an actual financial news network!

The petition:

Americans need CNBC to do strong, watchdog journalism – asking tough questions to Wall Street, debunking lies, and reporting the truth. Instead, CNBC has done PR for Wall Street. You’ve been so obsessed with getting “access” to failed CEOs that you willfully passed on misinformation to the public for years, helping to get us into the economic crisis we face today.
You screwed up badly. Don’t apologize – fix it!

CNBC should publicly declare that its new overriding mission will be responsible journalism that holds Wall Street accountable. As a down payment, we ask you to hire some new economic voices – people who have a track record of being right about the economic crisis and holding Wall Street executives’ feet to the fire.

Please show us that you hear our voices loud and clear.

Really, CNBC is supposed to the financial news network- the operative word being "news". Let's remind them of that.


  1. I assume this is a response to the Daily Show from last Thursday?

  2. Oh, yeah. It would be bad enough if the "reporters" at CNBC simply didn't know what was going on, but Cramer and the rest clearly do, they just didn't feel like doing any actual reporting. And then set themselves up as "experts" giving you the real story.

    At least Stewart bills himself as a comedian.


Comments are for you guys, not for me. Say what you will. Don't feel compelled to stay on topic, I enjoy it when comments enter Tangentville or veer off into Non Sequitur Town. Just keep it polite, okay?

I am attempting to use blogger's new comment spam feature. If you don't immediately see your comment, it is being held in spam, I will get it out next time I check the filter. Unless you are Dennis Markuze, in which case you're never seeing your comment.
