Joe Kernen: Teabagger

Phil LeBeau is CNBC’s auto expert.  Unlike most news personalities, he actually knows what he’s talking about.  He also happens to respect American auto workers and to think their industry is worth saving.

Such a curriculum vitae is guaranteed to invite the scorn of a CNBC uber-wingnut like Joe Kernen.  Yesterday, as LeBeau was reporting on the Chevy Volt, Kernen tried to imply that he was some kind of GM shill.  LeBeau was clearly not amused, and Kernen began to furiously backpedal before he got called out as the Republican stooge that he is.

It was good television.  I only wish they had been together in studio.
