Battle of the Network Spokespeople

Since this is a PR kind of morning, we bring you this network spokesman back and forth from today’s New York Post. It’s about the story we’ve been covering — Fox’s ads targeting CNBC’s Jim Cramer.

From CNBC:

It is a predictably desperate attempt by a completely irrelevant network with ratings so pathetically small they refuse to make them public. As recent market events attest, Jim Cramer has proven once again to be one of the most insightful and knowledgeable commentators in business news today.

Zing! and from Fox:

CNBC has become an industry joke thanks to Cramer’s irresponsible, sloppy commentary and wildly inaccurate predictions — how many more times is he going to apologize for tanking CNBC’s credibility?

Pow! Andy Lack, you’ve got your work cut out for you.

Oh, and one more thing: Happy Birthday to FBN. The business network launched one year ago today.
