Matt Taibbi and Sam Seder Skewer JP Morgan’s Dimon & CNBC’s Bubblehead Maria Bartiromo

TND Media Context Review | By Eric Dubin | bartiromo_

Perhaps “bubblehead” is a little harsh.  In truth, Maria Bartiromo is in fact quite smart.  But after watching the following video, I’m reminded of a classic observation by Upton Sinclair:  “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it”  —  or, in this case, woman.

This video speaks for itself, and is quite funny:

Long gone are the go-go years of the 1990s NASDAQ bubble and Joey Ramone’s ode to Ms. pouty lips.  Now that the financial system operates much like a casino, it’s truly astounding the mental gymnastics reporters perform to avoid truth telling.  Oh well…  At least there’s controlled fleecing, order and nice drinks in a casino.

For nearly a decade, Matt Taibbi’s investigative journalism for the Rolling Stone has been among the very best on finance anywhere.  Long ago, there was a time when Maria Bartiromo actually earned the respect of fellow journalists.  She was more than just a pretty face.  In the early to mid 1990s, before the bubble got to her head, she produced insightful, investigative pieces.  Today, as CNBC’s ratings crash to a 20 year low, it’s sad seeing this once great reporter circling the wagons around conventional wisdom and in defense of the companies that represent the majority of CNBC’s advertising revenue.
