A standard-issue promotional ad (right) declaring Fox Business Network’s Charlie Gasparino Breaks the Business News Stories Nobody Else Does sparked an unusual and highly personal Twitter fight between Gasparino and CNBC’s Ron Insana.
When the FBN ad was shared on Twitter, Insana responded that it wasn’t Gasparino breaking business stories, but rather, CNBC’s David Faber: “David Faber breaks news… ALL others follow!”
And that, my friends, got the bruising ball rolling–at least thirty minutes of often below-the-belt back-and-forth between high profile talent. Later, Gasparino went on Liz Claman‘s show (video below) and piled on.
“Why are you being mean?” Claman asked Gasparino. “I’m not being mean. He was mean to me. He’s jealous of Fox Business … he thinks the world begins and ends at that crappy studio at Englewood Cliffs.”
