    A huge fan of @TheStalwart and very happy this site is recognizing the importance of Business Insider over the flailing NYT business section. However, you’ve just basically described every single trader I ever worked with. The entire trading floor was filled with countdowns to unemployment #’s and KaBooms, along with everyone up at 4am. I guess difference is monetary comp vs. blogworld recognition?

    Though, I will say Weisenthal’s twitter feed almost singlehandedly replaces a Bloomberg Terminal.

    Has no one actually read the crap Weisemthal publishes? If that is what has become award winning journalism then God help us all

      Incredible, ain’t it? Of course, by the standards laid out — high volume, little substance, hardly any, you know, reporting, lots of tweeting, an emphasis on meaningless, minute-by-minute moves in the markets, news aimed at investors rather than citizens — he probably deserves it. I’ll even allow that there’s a place for that stuff. But best of the year is more than ridiculous. He does stuff interns used to do — just more of it. Best I can say is that he’s not the worst at BI, which is horrible in every respect.

    I’ll read anything with Peter Coy’s byline.

    Isabella Kaminska, of the FT Alphaville website, presents some of the deepest thoughts on financial issues I’ve ever read. Honorable Mention at the very least.

    Joe is prolific, and he puts out colorful product. He can dish it out, and he can take it, too. BI is a fun read.

  6. And who wrote this? Joe himself?? lol Pay more taxes you damned 1%!

    Its like Nobel award for that thug from Chicago in whitehouse, Al Gore and Paul Krugman. Only the brain dead idiots are eligible for these attaboys.

    In my view, the proper exchange ratio of Peter Coy to Joe Weisenthal is aproximately 1 to 10, which means I’d take one Peter Coy rather than a room full of JWs.

    This is a very nonsensical call by TBN.
