Squawkbox and the "Chairs"
CNBC's Squawkbox has on occasion a segment where the hosts sit in director's chairs and they usually discuss what's in the day's papers or any kind of current affair or event. It's also the only time to get caps of Becky Quick's legs. Whenever the shit hits the fan, and it's been like a billion toilets' worth these past few weeks, CNBC ditches the chairs and sticks to business. I don't understand why. So the economy's in the toilet, and the stock market is crashing worse than the Hindenburg. What's the problem with taking 5-10 minutes out of the show to talk about something different and get away from the doom and gloom? Is it so bad that you can't do that? Is spending those 5-10 minutes on business really so important that it makes a difference? I don't think so.
