Here, here. The Takeaway must just go away.

Hockenberry's journalistic sloppiness and ignorance were on parade again as he asserted that global economic hopes for rebound depended on domestic Black Friday sales to deliver the world from risks associated with the Dubai debt debacle.

No reasonable financial observer pins hopes of a global financial turnaround on a 3 day domestic shopping binge.

Can we just cancel this awful mix of crass observation and superficial journalism? The Takeaway is an experiment that failed. Bring back Morning Edition!
