CNBC, "The Recession Network," Thrives Amid Criticism
New York Times:
Was last week the worst one in CNBC's 20-year history -- or the best?
Larry Kudlow, an anchor at CNBC, sharply criticized President Obama's economics policy as a "war on investors."
The financial news network, a unit of NBC Universal, was savaged by "The Daily Show" in a viral video sensation. It was criticized for being too cozy with the corporations it covers. One of its stars, Jim Cramer, was ridiculed by the White House press secretary. And one of its reporters faced a new round of criticism for an on-air outburst about mortgage "losers."
