Dylan Ratigan's Ex-Producer Susan Krakower Is Really, Really Smart - At Least She Thinks So (Video)

Sucked into the CNBC ass-vortex of delusion, bull markets and purple unicorns.

Try to control your gag reflex as you watch this clip.

  • "These ideas didn't come from magazines or books, they came from inside their minds (Krakower points to her head and smiles about her staff.)."  

What a tool.  Self-important, glad-handing, pneumatic, what else am I missing.  Let's try narcissistic, superficial, insecure and inept.

CNBC producers are out of touch with their audience to a degree that borders on self-delusion.  They should spend just a few minutes on a message board to learn how the investing public views their network.  Knowledge and acceptance of the almost-universal antipathy and loathing most investors feel toward CNBC, would be a welcome step on the road to better programming, and sanity, for all of us.

On her advice to Cramer: you have to seduce your crowd into thinking you're the greatest, or something to that effect.  Seriously Susan, did you just say that?

Any questions as to why Ratigan bailed from CNBC?

Krakower: "I wanna be an expert...in being smart."

And her #1 source of news? "My head."

Her head has apprently been completely sucked up by the ass-vortex.

Those shows are terrible. People watch MSNBC because it's the only widely available television station that has a ticker tape and shows the futures before market open.

If a competing network launched a channel with shows requiring an attention span larger than a housecat, I would prefer that in a heartbeat. This idiot thinks she's a success when in reality she's been handed a monopoly. Your shows SUCK.

MASSIVE TOOL. My favorite shot is the idiots on Fast Money pushing stocks at Dow 13400. BOYCOTT CNBC_ I AM

Should we really see Krakower as representative of what's wrong with CNBC? "Fast Money" and "Mad Money" don't have the decaboxes and the people screaming at each other like other shows on that channel do. Fast Money gets lively, but it's more enthusiasm rather than guests jumping down each other's throats. To be sure, the Krakower-produced shows have their problems, but other programs are more of a wasteland.

I agree about Fast Money...always liked the show, but that was mostly because of Ratigan's rants...

As for Mad Money, I don't like the show...but then that's because I don't like watching Cramer...

So in the end, at least for me, the show's value is determined by its host...

Producers don't add much value...but they do make a lot of phone calls and have important lunches with other smart people...

In America, democracy only works in the media. People vote by watching and hearing and they don't watch or hear politics so they don't vote for politicians.
Why? Because these "news storefronts" know that and they don't show or talk about politics. They show and talk about what people vote for every instant: INFOTAINMENT presented by MEDIA WHORES.
The King is the people. Long live the King. Bow and scrape before the King.
Why? Because it's always been like that.
These people need to learn how to live but they will never have time to learn how to live or even have time to live. Why? It's always been like that. Long live the King.

If this grade D mind is the primary source of CNBC's content- no wonder they are a useless dumpster of refuse. This bimbo's limited intellect is so glaring it is actually jarring to witness. Her deep-seated narcissism is merely another variant of the self-inflated mediocrity of the 'jewish superiority' complex, which propagandizes itself to the world as brilliance!

To deflate her delusions of grandeur, simply puncture her ill-gotten ratings by TURNING CNBC OFF.

Ok, I just gotta chime in on this one...dear Lord...are you f'n kidding me? this chick is in charge of programming? she just oozes class act, huh?

BTW, her CNBC bio states: "Krakower also held senior positions at Universal Television where she was Senior Vice President, Programming and Development, and Vice President, Programming. In this role, she managed three shows, two in New York and one in Chicago: "Jerry Springer," "Sally Jesse Raphael" and "Maury Povich," overseeing the launch of the latter, as well."

Springer...SJR...Povich...'nuff said!

IF her head gets any bigger it'l EXPLODE! Geez lady go get laid!

Susan Krakower actually says that it's okay for Jim Cramer to mess with people's heads. She even said that her original idea for the show was to have someone who was NOT an expert in money! And, of course, we all are aware that Jim Cramer knows virtually nothing about money at all! He may be the worst forecaster in the history of the world. And stupid Susan Krakower thinks that's okay.

Send her back to where ever she came from. No one needs low IQ self-proclaimed "experts" running anything!

Mark Haines now deceased and Rick Santelli are the only commentators on CNBC with a shred of integrity. When I traded often I used to watch the show. Occasionally they would have a good guest. Most of the time I kept the show on mute. Only watched the ticker and would turn up the volume if it looked like something was happening.
