We've all commented for years how bad CNBC is for market coverage. By contrast, Bloomberg used to be the mature big brother and a place you could go to for more sane, balanced, "quieter" financial news and analysis, but nowdays it's becoming more and more CNBC'ish in its tone and coverage. (I still prefer Bloomberg to CNBC, though.)  That said, I was watching Bloomberg's web streeam at 0830 ET when the jobs number came out. The /ES popped and they were still on a tape delay -- then, when they came back to cover the 'breaking' news they had 10-15 seconds where they re-ran a compilation of voiceovers of their reporters breaking previously horrible numbers BEFORE going live with today's numbers. IMHO that was so totally *not* the way to cover breaking news -- i.e., giving a ton of "fake" numbers before the real ones. (Thank gods I don't trade off the TV lol) Le sigh. Bloomberg, what's happening to ye?  If memory serves, last year they hired an ex-CNBC'er to be their TV director or some-such to compete more directly with CNBC. That may explain much.
