  •  CNBC would be a good place to start. (0+ / 0-)

    From what I've seen  these folks just are compelled to state their worldview.

    Not blaming Bush for the mess we're in, is like not blaming a train engineer for a fatal train wreck because he's no longer driving the train.

      If I am a Fortune 1000 CEO and I go on CNBC and say that we are worried about the uncertainty, and think that the President's economic policies are hurting the country and therefore we are being cautious, so what? The shareholders aren't going to revolt and really can't even if they wanted to. Some might sell their stock, but most shareholders will give the CEO the benefit of the doubt through the election.

        The institutional investor is not  giving the benefit of the doubt in most cases.

         It seems to me the only reason they're giving Jamie Dimon any slack is due to him being the only one seemingly unscathed by the Financial Meltdown. Credit Default Swaps sold by AIG(which nearly imploded)  and a Warren Buffet loan are what saved Goldman Sachs and Morgan saved itself by becoming a commercial bank thus getting Fed access.

          that I was writing about but the Fortune 1000, industrial companies who are the organizations we need to start hiring to really turn around the job picture.

          •  I just used them as example of Institutional (0+ / 0-)

            Investors.   I guess the point being is that CNBC has a limited audience but if places like Dailykos monitor CNBC and shine the light on these folks it would be a step in the right direction. As was seen with OWS folks don't like unwanted attention.
