Zucker to CNBC: Quit Obama bashing

THE top suits and some of the on-air talent at CNBC were recently ordered to a top-secret meeting with General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt and NBC Universal President Jeff Zucker to discuss whether they've turned into the President Obama-bashing network, Page Six has learned.

"It was an intensive, three-hour dinner at 30 Rock which Zucker himself was behind," a source familiar with the powwow told us. "There was a long discussion about whether CNBC has become too conservative and is beating up on Obama too much. There's great concern that CNBC is now the anti-Obama network...."
Bull bashing would be next on deck, but they probably can't find any bulls!

And the bull here, is already bashing the bears quite nicely, thank you!

(btw bears--Did you see ISRG and it's revenue miss? The stock was down 7, and now it is up 3. Now ask yourself--You still feel good about shorting GOOG? Do you think the folks at Fast Money will refund your losses?)
