Square eyes

On a day that Reuters got a lot of news coverage for its interview with Hector "be afraid" Sants, it is interesting to take a quick look at financial TV.

CNBC - favourite of the day traders - has come in for a lot of attention recently, and not for reasons it would like. Watch Jon Stewart's attack, or - more realistically for those of you at work - read Salon's fun article on the subject.

Who watches financial television seriously? I do not know but Reuters has just launched its new streaming video service, and with serious intent.

There is talk that the future of TV is 'narrowcasting' ... so I guess this fits with that.
