They’re asking CNBC to hire economic voices with a track record of being right about the current crisis and do more to hold business leaders accountable.
Those who have been “right,” in Media Matters’ view, are of course leftist critics.
In one respect, the Left’s campaign against CNBC may turn out differently from its anti-Limbaugh effort. Rush is a single, principled individual who can fight back with conviction and wit. CNBC is controlled by a bunch of corporate suits. Such individuals may or may not be susceptible to pressure by a disreputable group like Media Matters.
