Adventures in naming, misguided tip-sheet edition

By Felix Salmon

Why oh why did Ron Insana have to call his horrible new product Market Movers? I never liked that name when I was at Portfolio — in fact I hated it — but I did live it for two years, and so now I feel there’s some kind of connection between me and Insana. Which makes me feel rather icky, to say the least.

You just made a terrible mistake. I don’t think that I ever knew that your blog was called “Market Movers”. I’d certainly forgotten that fact if I did. I had no idea Insana was still around. Now you’ve linked yourself together with Insana. You did this. Now I’m seeing Insana wearing your shirts and glasses. Troubling. I didn’t need that image showing up in the old cranium.

Worse yet, Jim Cramer is associated with Isana’s blog.
