    If you think that most TV business News in the US is a joke, then CNBC-US is the punchline and Fox Biz is the opening line.

    ...though I do like Bloomberg, for they at least they're not cheerleaders, infatuated with sound effects and spinnyswooshy graphics, and approach the subject in a far more serious manner than either CNBC-US or FBN.

    Though I will add that CNBC-World is pretty good and has a more professional "Bloomberg-y" feel to it. But the difference in the two CNBC networks is stunning....which goes a long way in telling me how stupid the US audience is to continue tolerating the kind of tripe aired on CNBC-US.

    Only thing on CNBC-US I like/appreciate and find useful these days is Rick Santelli in Chicago.

    That said, unless there's a world crisis or major news being reported the TV is off during the trading day -- I find it a distraction. I even trade FOMC days sans TV, and have done much better that way. :)
  5. As other posters have said, Bloomberg is much better than the others. I'm surprised that CNBC is such a large cash cow for GE.
