Worst Question On CNBC

"Are you panicking?"

How many times have they asked this to the "money managers" who come on the air?

Have you ever heard one of them say, "Oh yes, we're completely panicking. I'm freaked out right now! What's the market doing?"

No. And they never will.

CNBC always shows how silly it is when the shit hits the fan.

So, professor, would you say it's time for everyone to panic?

Yes I would, Kent.

Is that from Real Genius?

Great movie... that and Weird Science. I must have watched them 6000 times each on HBO when I was a kid.

No, the Simpsons. The tv announcer Kent Brockman interviewing professor Frink. Great line!

Damn it... and I aged myself too!
