Biz news networks drop Faber after racist comments
All three business news networks have dropped newsletter publisher Marc Faber from future appearances after he made racist comments in a recent publication, reports Matthew Zeitlin of BuzzFeed.
Zeitlin reports, “Following backlash on social media, a CNBC spokesperson told BuzzFeed News that it had no business relationship with Faber and, ‘we do not intend to book him in the future.’ Faber had appeared on all three major business news networks, but was most well known for his frequent appearances on CNBC.
“‘Faber has not appeared on the network often, and will not be on in the future,’ a Fox Business Network spokesperson said.
“‘He hasn’t been on our air since June 2016 and we don’t intend to book him in the future,’ Bloomberg TV spokesperson Ty Trippet told BuzzFeed News.
“People took to Twitter on Tuesday calling on CNBC to keep Faber off its shows.”
