Michael Covel comments on four CNBC interview clips from legendary trend following trader David Harding of Winton Capital. Covel goes through the interviews with Erin Burnett, then of CNBC, Joe Kernen, and Fast Money. Covel comments as the anchors ask question after question that show they don't yet understand the basic concepts behind Harding's success. They beg for stock tips, ask predictive political questions, idiotically compare Harding's approach to Long Term Capital Management, and otherwise not get the big idea. Covel's analysis shows that reading teleprompters doesn't necessarily imply one has insight. It's an educational analysis to see how David Harding thinks and talks about trend following trading and to watch how the media system doesn't get it. Those lessons alone are worth the price in gold.

    Hi, episode 434 Burma and Vietnam. I like your show but you are just a little dumb sometimes.
    Vietnam did not blossom because it is free. It blossoms because the wage is so low that your capitalist friends can go there and exploit them.
    You say Burma opened up the last few years and everyone is energetic. I was there 15 years ago. People were starving. They must work to eat. You stay in a 5 star hotel and speak of the people. Did you make friends? Did you have lunch in their house? Did you try eating what they eat? Don't you feel foolish? You are a poor traveler and just another tourist. How can you understand the situation sitting in a 5 star hotel? The last thing those countries need is Americanism. Cant you just appreciate their culture? Don't you feel a little simple?
