RIP Mark Haines

There is not much I like about CNBC...in fact, I haven't watched it in years. But Mark Haines was a reason I watched when I did. He was hard-hitting, didn't take any bullshit, yet also seemed to be a likable guy if you ever got past the gruff exterior. He was a true journalist.

"Cary Grant once told me I was his favorite reporter. Clearly the man was highly intelligent."

RIP Mr. Haines - you were a class act.

edit - this is a good article from Forbes..."Why CNBC's Mark Haines Was Special". At the end of the article is the Erin Burnett tribute, where Mark shows his softer side.

I agree, he was one of the few things worth watching on CNBC.
