This does not, however, mean that they have even the first inkling of a glimmer of a clue:
THE top suits and some of the on-air talent at CNBC were recently ordered to a top-secret meeting with General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt and NBC Universal President Jeff Zucker to discuss whether they’ve turned into the President Obama-bashing network, Page Six has learned.
“It was an intensive, three-hour dinner at 30 Rock which Zucker himself was behind,” a source familiar with the powwow told us. “There was a long discussion about whether CNBC has become too conservative and is beating up on Obama too much. There’s great concern that CNBC is now the anti-Obama network. The whole meeting was really kind of creepy.”
Too conservative. Beating up on Obama too much. Fox News, one would assume. But no, it’s CNB-freaking-C! Right, that’s the problem. You just keep telling yourself that, Schmucker, as your network fades slowly to black.
