Steadfast Petition CNBC to Make Some Content Changes - Steadfast Finances Petition CNBC to Make Some Content Changes

If the Jon Stewart vs. Jim Cramer fiasco wasn’t enough to convince you that some content changes are due at CNBC, I’m not sure what will.

As I’ve said a few times here at SF and around the blogosphere, the CNBC we have today isn’t the CNBC that I knew 10 years ago.  There is a larger focus on sensationalism and talking heads debating themselves rather than reporting business news.

I’m not a believer that over the top debates and guest speakers arguing with seasoned reporters is proper etiquette for a business network.

If you feel the same way, or just want to put a warning shot across their bow, please consider signing the petition.

If getting called out for their lack of ethics by a channel who’s most notable show contains 4 foul-mouthed 4th graders (aka – Southpark), then maybe a petition of a few hundred thousand disgrunted viewers can shake things up a bit.

Why does everyone want to fix it? If it is so bad, then just start your own network. Or watch Bloomberg, or CNN, or any of the dozen other networks that reports business news. Don’t whine – Vote with your feet.
