    RIP. I don't watch CNBC anymore, but one time he was interviewing John Bollinger and you could tell Haines had had one martini too many for lunch. It was hilarious, and Bollinger couldn't contain his laughter either.

    Oh, that's right. Those were the only two I enjoyed watching. I don't think they have anyone who can adequately fill that time slot.

    Sorry to hear that, he was fairly good with an honest opinion on both sides. I watched him call bullshit on both sides of the aisle, and that is priceless. The Barney Frank clip sticks in my head for all time. Frank never got it as he is of the many useless humans walking the earth, who think they should be idolized, and he couldn't stand being called a turd on national tv. Hard to beat that!

  9. Anybody know what the health issues were?

    I always thought he seemed a little out of place as an on-air personality, but one thing I never doubted was his integrity. He seemed like a straight-shooter, a man who wasn't afraid to tell it like it is, which is rare these days.

    My condolences to his family and friends.
