CNBC ♥ Milton Friedman

Business network CNBC outflanks Fox Business Network by running a new promo ad featuring Milton Friedman’s 1979 interview with Phil Donahue, wherein Friedman challenges Donahue’s views about capitalism and “greed”:

Lefties don’t like it. They don’t like it at all; they want you to write CNBC and complain.

Let’s just hope MSNBC doesn’t find out!
