  8. 15:18 CNBC reports that Bernanke said media misunderstood his remarks last week

    15:25 Follow up on Bernanke comments

    CNBC commentator says Bernanke told her over the weekend that the media and markets basically got it wrong last week in speculating that the Fed is done raising interest rates. He said it is worrisome to him that anyone would think of him as dovish. He said that he and FOMC members were trying to creat some flexibility for the Fed reserve, and that the Fed may pause but the data will dictate whether more rate hikes will take place.
