What The Next Quarter Holds For CNBC

Marketwatch’s Jon Friedman writes about CNBC’s first quarter of 2009, in which “the network was stung repeatedly by image-rattling incidents,” from the Santelli rant to Cramer’s Daily Show interview to the exits of Jonathan Wald and Dylan Ratigan.

He puts forth five suggestions for the network in the upcoming quarter. They include “focus on analysis” (“I want to hear these folks tell me not only why the big news event of the day is important, but also how it fits into patterns and trend”) and “don’t ignore Main Street” (“can’t CNBC at least pay lip service to the ‘little guy’ of the stock market now and then?”).

Friedman does note MarketWatch is owned by News Corp. — as is CNBC competitor Fox Business Network.
