I have become Persona Non Grata at CNBC.

There was an issue with some really obnoxious blog comments (they were deleted); I started asking not to be booked with really dumb guests (I also requested no Octobox). I did do Fox  a few times (But really, who cares about that? I do all media outlets on behalf of my firm).
