For The "Maria" Voters

Listen... I've been watching CNBC daily for 8+ years. Not once... NOT ONCE has Maria Bartiromo said a damned thing that helped me make any money.

I know that most of you don't listen to what she says. You're there, clacking away at your keyboard, starting at your computer monitors, looking for cool video clips on Youtube and trading stocks. CNBC is background noise. You really keep it on just in case something happens to blow up somewhere. Sometimes you glance at the TV and, oh yeah, she has nice eyes. Big deal.

Wouldn't it be nice if the news anchors were informed? I mean, we're going through a financial crisis and they haven't said one smart thing this week. Ratigan is good and Erin could be good (if they let her). Instead, all most have done is cheer the market on as it bleeds to death.

Anyway, watch how Maria gets owned by Anderson Cooper in this celebrity Jeopardy death match. Don't want to watch the whole thing? Fine... they GIVE HER fake money at the end so she can participate in Final Jeopardy.

Wow, she was clueless. What I really like is how you can judge the net worth of the person she is interviewing by the tone of her voice. She has a normal voice, a millionaire voice, and then her billionaire voice that sounds like something from a 900 number.

She would have won if the answers were on a t.v. promter. I saw her on the Maclocklin group and Pat buchanan totally destroyed her opinions which were off the wall. She is really dumb. I dont watch CNBC anymore just Bloomberg on mute.

Yeah, my favorite thing about Maria is the way she sabatoges any other female anchor she works with. It doesn't seem like any like to have to work with her.

She just takes herself so seriously and doesn't seem to have much of a sense of humor, ever. Even the Michael Moore thing... if they take her off script, she gets exposed pretty easily.

I'll have to pay more attention to the voice thing... I hadn't noticed that yet. I'll look for the MacLaughlin footage... that sounds good.
