The Fox Business Channel isn't on the Comcast cable system here in Beverly, Mass. Grrr. At least the web site debuted. It's very pretty on a desktop PC but took more than two minutes to load on a BlackBerry Pearl, even with a perfect cell signal.
Perhaps the other video segments are better, but Fox Business host Alexis Glick butchered an interview with former HP CEO and current Fox Business contributor Carly Fiorina. Alexis asked Carly asked three bogus questions about whether HP was "eyeing Kodak for a takeover." (Fox attributed this "report" to the Financial Times, but I'll be damned if I can find the article.) Carly rightly said "I don't work there anymore." Alexis then plugged Carly's book (now a year old), and then asked about Carly's political ambitions and whether she had "anything to announce."
Glick is a Fox vice-president and a veteran of both CNBC and NBC's Today show. I was shocked to learn this, because in the Carly interview she came across like an intern. Carly looked visibly uncomfortable -- not with the camera, but by being so underutilized as a business expert.
I know it's only Day 1 and all that, but Jesus, FBN will have to do better than this.
