When I think of Liesman I think of a chipmunk. Specifically a chipmunk I used to feed at a park. When I fed this particular chimpunk, he would get super excited and act as though he found gold and promptly go hide the food. All the while acting as though he had a found a big secret, when of course he only had what I felt like giving him.
Liesman reminds me of that chipmunk.
This dude seems to have no clue he's being used. I honestly think he thinks he has an in to higher powers in the Federal Gov't, when in reality he's almost certianly only their controlled faux leak vehicle of choice.
Shirakashi laid out in his review the most well documented instance of this
but it's something I've long suspected.
If you listen to Liesman on a regaular basis you'll hear a lot of his pro fed gov't spiels start with phrases like "I heard from a confidential source high in the state department today that..."
And then inevitably some propaganda babble starts pouring out. And it's obviously so because it's never "information" that would be incovenient to whatever agenda the federal gov't is pursuing at the given time. If it were, then that would be different (or if he realized that's what it was).
Repeating leaks as truth is not what real reporters do, Steve. Real reporters don't take things at face value because they got a hot tip. Real reporters don't rely on a single source for a story and they follow up with independent confirmation to verfiy the story. Real reporters are capable of independent thought.
To make matters worse he is an obnoxious permabull as well. To the point he seems to constantly feel the need to "correct' counter viewpoints while they are in midsentence.
As you can imagine this goes over well on the set as it almost always devolves into a shoutfest then, so his prescence ruins the commentary of others as well.
That takes some talent.
I don't think he's malicious at heart, but he sure is a dope.
Completely worthless for investors and traders.
