Barney Frank Cuts CNBC Interview Short

Rep. Barney Frank appeared on CNBC this morning, ahead of today’s executive pay hearing. “We’ll try to keep it brief so you can do the job you’re there to do,” said Mark Haines at the beginning of the interview.

He just didn’t know it would be this brief. After some back-and-forth with Haines (around the five minute mark), Frank got annoyed. “I apologize, but this interview is over,” he said. “I get three different questions, different angles, I try to respond, you want to interrupt because you don’t like what I’m saying, then you can find someone else to interview.”
