Revisiting the Pareene Clip

With news of J.P. Morgan's corrupt practices in China still making headlines, as this old post/clip shows, we have Gawker alumni Alex Pareene to thank for giving us the image of financial reporters throwing up their hands over the deal.

Pareene on CNBC

Recently former Gawker and Wonkette blogger Alex Pareene made an appearance on CNBC, which though it may have played to their audience, especially when Maria Bartiromo threw up her hands at the idea of the New York Times being a purveyor of fact, I wouldn't say she or the business network came off in the best light.

The following video clip is via Felix Salmon's write-up on his Reuters blog; Pareene has filed a recap for his current employers at Salon and the Washington Post's Wonkblog also weighs-in.
