CNBC’s morning lineup.

Notice … very white, mainly male.

cnbcsqk22222Yes, I ‘listen’ to CNBC (for about 70 minutes) each and every morning, without fail, and have done so for many a year.

I like to know what is happening, or going to happen, in the market — viz. stock futures, news, employment numbers, economic data — and CNBC is an ‘easy’ way to get that, though I also check ‘MarketWatch.com‘ on my pad while I ‘listen’ to CNBC. I stress ‘listen’ because I don’t really watch the TV screen. I can process the audio while I read other stuff on my pad, mainly the U.K. ‘Daily Mail‘, from cover to cover.

Yes, there are aspects of CNBC that I detest. Joe Kernen is an outright bigot and I used to like Rick Santelli before he became Mr. Tea Party.

But it has occurred to me of late that CNBC revels in being blatantly racist.

OK, you can see the lineup. The ONLY non-caucasian is Carl Quintanilla and I have noticed that they treat him very POORLY. I will get to that. Yes, they have one black guy who is invited to talk about tech — BUT notice he is NOT featured in the lineup. And then they have the EXCELLENT, Latino Michelle Caruso-Cabrera from New Hampshire.

They have very few black guests or guest hosts. Go check. They have a few Asians BUT I can’t recall them having an Asian guest hosts.

But, I come back to Carl Quintanilla and to a lesser extent David Faber (who has been with CNBC from the very start).

Carl Quintanilla is very smart, erudite, personable and competent. Ditto David Faber. The two of them are definitely smarter than Jim Cramer and Cramer knows that. But on ‘Squawk on the Street’ Carl Quintanilla is used as a FLUFFER, his role being that of throwing gentle puff-ball questions that Cramer tries to hit out of the park. Carl & David Faber get about 20% of the airtime, Cramer the rest. Not right. It should be the other way around. David and Carl are exceptionally bright, informed and cerebral. They can tell us much more relevant stuff than rambling Cramer.

How they treat Carl Quintanilla is NOT right. Carl deserves better.

A lead story on October 22, 2015 ‘martketwatch.com’. Click to access original.


I was surprised, if not outright shocked, to see this story in ‘MarketWatch‘.

No, no, I was not at surprised at ALL, at ALL, that Jim had got it wrong. Come on Jim has been a total joke for nearly a decade.

PLEASE tell me that you do not view him as anything more than an entertainer — a comedian at that. That has been his role at CNBC, ‘Mad Money‘ including, for close onto a decade. Nobody who is seriously into the market pays any blind bit of notice as to what Cramer says — other than maybe to do the exact OPPOSITE of what he recommends.

There was a time, over 10 years ago, when Cramer actually knew what he was talking about. He helped me make some money. I used to watch (or tape) ‘Mad Money’ every day and listen to him whenever I could. He got me into Caterpillar (CAT) c. 2003 and I then extrapolated that into Cummins. Yes, I made some decent money. Then I started to notice that Jim was getting things BADLY wrong with increasing regularity.

His advice, on air, not to buy MasterCard was the final straw for me. I haven’t listened to anything he has said since. And I am extremely THANKFUL. Jim could NOT beat a chimpanzee when it comes to picking stocks now. He has totally lost it. Read the article below.

And he rarely admits to getting it wrong.

So PLEASE treat Jim Cramer for what he is — a serious comedian.
