Jeff Macke's Faux Pas Turns into a Pink Slip? LSD Market Claims Another Victim

Whoa, dude, I'm seeing TRACERS!!

To quote Jeff Macke himself: "Forget it. It's over. You're on the other side of the mountain now."

In case you missed it, proof that the market turns you into a raging dope fiend courtesy of our little CNBC friend... who may not be on CNBC much longer. Oh well. CNBC sucks ass anyway.

It's fucking dangerous out there, kids! Batten down the hatches, we're done for!

Via Clusterstock:

We've confirmed with multiple sources that Jeff Macke is indeed engaged in highly stressful contract talks with CNBC, and the network has indeed been limiting his airtime.

Whether the network is keeping him off camera as some sort of stress-inducing leverage, or because it is concerned about breakdowns like Tuesday night's is unclear. It could be a combination.

We've also been told Macke was behaving erratically even before he went on camera Tuesday, which makes you wonder why they let him on in the first place. It also means that the outburst wasn't just some kind of self-aware joke he was playing on Kneale.

One source familiar with the situation speculates the talks utimately will end with Macke leaving the network, a la Dylan Ratigan.

(I especially enjoy the comment left on the Clusterstock post:

Get off the guy's back already people. What CNBC prognosticator HASN'T appeared on live television without an eightball in his pocket?? Come on, this is America. Green shoots and white lines.

Rang dang diggedy dang di-dang, baby!) #scoregasm!

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
