Santelli to Liesman: ‘Put Your Money Where Your Mouth is.’ Liesman: ‘You Have Everything Wrong, Rick’

CNBC_3.15.jpgAnd you thought Charlie Gasparino jumping from CNBC to FBN would make CNBC one big happy family? Think again.

This morning on “Squawk Box,” CNBC’s economics reporter Steve Liesman and Tea Party phenom Rick Santelli got into an argument about investing in the markets.

“I’m not arguing,” said Santelli to co-anchor Becky Quick, “and Steve has no idea, and I’m just trying to point to facts.” Then it got interesting.

Liesman: Rick, you’ve lost enough people enough money by now.

Santelli: Why don’t we put that to a referendum. Let’s put it on our website right now. Who lost you more money, Steve Liesman or Rick Santelli. Put your money where your mouth is.

Liesman: Rick you argued interest rates would be higher, you argued for the crash of the dollar, Rick. Rick, you had everything wrong, Rick. There wasn’t a single thing you had right.

Santelli: Jobs, jobs, jobs. I talked about the credit crisis.

Liesman: You were wrong… you said the credit crisis was nothing. I’ll pull the tapes.

Santelli: Okay. You pull the tapes Steve Liesman.

Liesman: You were wrong about everything.

Quick, who sat arms folded, jumped in: “Alright. Alright, alight! Enough!”

WSJ Deputy Managing Editor Heading to CNBC

deogun_12-14.jpgCNBC is preparing to bring Wall Street Journal deputy managing editor Nik Deogun on board as the network’s new managing editor, reports the NYTimes.

Talking Biz News reports that Deogun has held the WSJ position since July 2008, overseeing “the paper’s global network of bureaus and correspondents.” Deogun had also been the editor of the Money & Investing section and deputy chief of the Washington bureau.

Charlie Gasparino and Steve Liesman were also WSJ staffers that moved CNBC.

The Times also reports:

As managing editor, Mr. Deogun will be responsible for day-to-day business news coverage and long-term strategy. The network’s current managing editor is Tyler Mathisen who, according to a CNBC employee who asked for anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak on this issue, will become a vice-president at the network and return to TV as an anchor for “Power Lunch.”

Update: It’s official. Senior VP Jeremy Pink sent a message to CNBC staffers announcing both Mathisen’s promotion and Deogun’s hiring. Deogun will start at CNBC next February.

Full note after the jump.

Rick Santelli to Steve Liesman: “Don’t Open Your Mouth and Say Dumb Things”

RealClearPolitics was watching CNBC this afternoon when Mr. Tea Party himself, Rick Santelli, went off on CNBC’s Steve Liesman.

Liesman, the network’s economics guru, posed a question about whether it might be okay for business leaders to not disclose certain things even if it were ethically wrong or even illegal.

Santelli, from his post at the CBOT, shot back, “Are you gonna come up with excuses to break rules and break the law. You sound like Richard Nixon. Who did you vote for Steve?”

Before explaining his question, Liesman asked, “In which election?”

Brian Williams to Co-Anchor Today Tomorrow

AllThree_2.19.jpgNBC’s Brian Williams will co-anchor NBC’s Today show in the morning alongside Matt Lauer, “so Meredith can take a morning off,” he announced on tonight’s Nightly News.

One of the last times Williams was on the show live and in studio was when he appeared with former Today co-anchor Katie Couric and ABC’s Charlie Gibson to promote last summer’s Stand up to Cancer event.

> Update: Meredith Vieira won’t be on the Today show tomorrow, but a tipster tells us she’ll be on The Tonight Show instead.

> Morning Update: Williams co-anchored just the first hour of the show. He moderated a debate between CNBCers Rick Santelli and Steve Liesman saying Santelli’s call yesterday for a remake of the Boston Tea Party was, “the most e-mailed moment in the Blogosphere.” (Santelli: “Maybe I could have chosen some words better, but I think at the end of the day, what this boils down to is you have to treat everybody fairly.”) Later in the show the control room cued up, “It’s Raining Men” as Lauer and Williams sat side by side in studio and Al Roker reported from Miami Beach.
