The Consumer News and Business Channel was launched on April 17, 1989; in 1991, the name was shortened to “CNBC.” The nickname “CNBS” has been used since at least 2007 by those who feel that the business information network is too pro-stock market (and full of “b.s.").

I remember last week listening to CNBS, er CNBC about Matthew Rothman a university of Chicago PhD and Quant manager saying: “it’s a once in a 10,000 year event and it happened 3 days in a row”, how absurd, we were in caves then, you know the math is flawed if those words can come out of their mouths.
MNBC, CNBC refuse pro-war ads

As for the story, it rienforces my belief in boycotts. For the life of me, I don’t get why so many on my side continue to patronize truth hating anti-American orgs. like MSLSD,CNBS, Le NY Crimes etc., and ALSO discourage people from boycotting

Prepare for the worst because it’s coming fast. The ponzi sham scheme is running out of steam. Check out guys like Karl Denninger, Gerald Celente and Marc Faber. They’re not afraid to say it like it is. And if you happen to watch CNBS, well when Steve Liesman comes on, do yourself a favor and mute the dick head.
