    Barney Frank, the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee and a vocal critic of Wall Street pay, appeared on CNBC this morning to talk about what should be done to limit executive compensation. Let's just say it didn't go well. Frank stormed off the set after exchanging heated words with CNBC's Mark Haines.

    "It seems to be that you're dealing with a model that no longer works," Haines said of Frank's proposed executive pay rules, which would give shareholders much greater control over compensation.

    Then things escalated. After Frank said, "May I respond sir?" several times, the interview devolved into a mini-shouting match. Frank ended the interview abruptly -- apparently, in anger over being interrupted several times.

    REAL journalists do not bring their personal beliefs to the job.


    A REAL journalist reports the facts.



    This is why Rush, Hannitty, O'Reilly, Olberman and the rest can call themselves whatever they want.


    Not ONE of them is a REAL journalist.


    They are COMMONtators.


    Spelling intended.

    I guess the invitation was a ruse for a one way conversation from a dolt who can't figure out he is backing the assholes who got the world into this finacial mess.

    Barney Frank acted like a complete jackass but the fundamental issue that he is pushing is absolutely correct on reforming compensation committees in corporations. Boards are often unresponsive to shareholders, particularly regarding compensation. Giving shareholders more ability to effect change at the board level is enormously positive.
