After the various plot lines to the Rick Santelli story yesterday, the CNBC reporter responded in a blog post on CNBC.com last night. “Let me be clear that I have NO affiliation or association with any of the websites or related tea party movements that have popped up as a result of my comments on February 19th, or to the best of my knowledge any of the people who organized the websites or movements,” he wrote.
Stelter also talked to a CNBC spokesman about why the network canceled Santelli’s Daily Show appearance tomorrow. “It was time to move on to the next big story,” he said.
