And The Winner is . . .

Media Bistro reminds us that last year, Eric Bolling made a big $50,000 bet (loser donates to the charity of winner’s choice) with James Cramer.

Congrats to Eric Bolling for winning the bet.

Now if only Bolling’s prescience about metals worked when evaluating TV networks . . .

    Bolling was the best thing on CNBC, and the rest of them Jealous and bitter, mostly because overall he was a genius, and made them look bad.
    That was when I stopped watching “fast Money”, or as I like to refer to it. “Stocks for Deaf people”. Why do they have to yell all the time, does it really make their arguments that more convincing, or less. Even worse, the other day(when I wasn’t watching) someone was making a good point, and one of the other guys interrupted him, and never let him finish his point.
    Further note, Karen rocks.

    Is there any word on the emergence of and Boling the Fox Business Channel?

    I say, K-Fine in ’09. Would we really have any more problems if Karen Finerman were president. She manages millions of dollars and has 4 kids, what more do you need in a president?

    Bolling, apparently has to run out of his non-compete with McBuisness TV…. I think it’s a year… so that means….Aug-sep?

    he does guest pieces now…. and coins money in commodities.

    Karen is just the woman I fucked up and didn’t marry….

    Just a continuation of my own personal “Ben Steinery”….

    On that, and Off Topic:
    It keeps hitting me in the head that the 80’s boom was caused more by paul volcker, than “Trickle down”… Maybe I’m the last one to the Trough, on that…

    Truth probably is somewhere in the middle.

    For certain, mad money misses Eric Bolling. Jeff Macke, Karen Finerman aren’t too bad, but the others, ESPECIALLY Adami…. well, I wouldn’t take their advice to organize my kids coin collection. They make alot of bad calls, especially resource cos.

    Bolling didnt just win it was a complete destruction. This was like the New England Patriots playing the Miami Dolphins.

    It is interesting how Cramer always talks about he admits his mistakes. I havent seen any mention of this by Cramer.

    Deaf TV is right. The biggest offender is Dylan Ratigan trying to prove he belongs there by shouting over everybody, and engaging in his “I’m so cute ism” When Karen did the show during his vacation everyone could be heard. They must have a 16 year old producer from Jerry Springer. Ratigan should wash his greaseball hair more ofter,actually he should be fired as an improvement.

    I loved Eric Bolling on Fast Money. It’s a real shame he left. It’s a bigger shame he went to such a crap outfit like Fox. People lose all their integrity as soon as they go work there.

    Isn’t that the truth. Who the hell would trust Faux News for financial information is beyond me. I hear their business channel’s in the crapper right out of the gate.
