<Retirees may have time to watch CNBC, but why would they? What's the good of retiring if you end up being glued to CNBC?>

I'm retired but not "glued." CNBC is a too immediacy-oriented for me, and some of their "alerts" I find almost humorous. It's like the world should hold its collective breath when Co. X's earnings are about to be announced. I feel sorry for some of the interviewees because there's a constant hurryup pressure from the interviewers. Q's come too fast and the conversations, as a result, are superficial.

If CNBC were on a treadmill, its heart rate would reach 160 and stay there most of the day.
