CNBC's Squawk On The Street anchor Mark Haines had a unique analogy for the way he thinks the Treasury Department has been handling the economic rescue plan. He's pretty steamed about a perceived lack of transparency and consistency in Treasury's communications.
When discussing the economy with CNBC's Steve Liesman and co-anchor Erin Burnett, Haines said he said he no longer wanted to be treated like a "mushroom."
HAINES: "I'd like somebody to tell me -- not to treat me like a mushroom. You know how they grow mushrooms. They keep them in the dark and they feed them bovine fecal matter. OK? And That's what they've been doing with us."
