Comments on: Blodget fires Carney http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/03/25/blodget-fires-carney/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: gpeng05 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/03/25/blodget-fires-carney/comment-page-1/#comment-12977 Mon, 29 Mar 2010 02:50:41 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=3065#comment-12977 I agree – I stopped reading it because of Carney and Weisenthal, not the reverse. They have a rather annoying tendency to exhibit knee-jerk political views which were more panic-driven than thoughtful. If I want that, I can go to FoxNews, not a blog that’s supposed to intelligently digest financial news.

joe, who does your hair, joe?
he did a face interview with max keiser. the kid is a punk.
nothing of substance is coming out of that brain via his mouth. blodget tried to cover the olympics. how do these reporters get off the couch every 4 years and think they have the tools and expertise to cover an event like the olympics. i was embarrassed for him. i read the comments to some of the more buzzable articles, all total just around 2. and those 2 usually are dissing the various authors. they are even trying to do soft porn if you ask me, to get some readership. joke.

If I want to read Business Insider content, I’ll subscribe to its RSS feed, I don’t need teaser feeds for BI on the ClusterStock feed. It’s gotten so sensational that it isn’t even worth reading now.

I can’t imagine where Blodget is headed if Carney was his upside connection to quality journalism…
