Wait...was that...

Most mornings, as I drag myself from the land of Nod to the less enjoyable land of the living and work, I like to watch the news. Old habits, as they say, die hard.

My usual viewing pattern begins with a few moments of CNN followed by a dose of Morning Joe before settling in for CNBC's Squawk Box.

Why Squawk? Well, first of all they have very few commercials, unlike a certain Atlanta-based news network. Second, they're all about business, eliminating the racist/sexist/thoughtless jingoism of genocidal tyrant Rupert Murdoch's Fox and Friends. And, finally, Becky Quick is really a very nice way to start the day.

That said, I saw something this morning on Squawk I'd never seen before. As part of the show's Market Watch logo they had one of these:



Yes indeedy folks, CNBC and its parent company, NBC Universal, have now officially, but quietly, announced their participation in the evil Masonic/Trilateral Commission/Illuminati plot to control our lives.

Everyone knows the All Seeing Eye (also know by a less threatening sobriquet, the Eye of Providence, in some of the more manipulative circles to keep us off guard) is the symbol of the New World Order, here to take our guns and other God-given rights and make us slaves to European overlords...Who we, of course, desperately need in these trying times of financial and social upheaval. (You know, just in case they're watching.)

CNN - really? I forgive you - I am a Fox News kind of girl and its on over my head as we speak - I watch it all day long

I neither ask for nor want forgiveness for watching CNN. Like I said, just can't handle the smug, self-serving, insipid, hollow, blatantly partisan swill Fox attempts to pass off as news. Not saying CNN doesn't do it the other way, but at least it throws some news coverage into the effort.

Fox is sensational BS.

I am more of a Today show kinda girl. I like to see how many times Ann Curry can screw up reading off the prompter in the first 20 minutes of the day.

CNN is still the gold standard in news coverage. Fox "news" is still infotainment, with an emphasis on the "tainment" part.

Lem - wow! haven't watched Today in forever. You've inspired me to add a little spice to my morning routine. Today it is, tomorrow.
