If ever there were a man who needed a cooler head and thicker skin, it'd be Barney Frank.

He has himself to blame for the bad press he receives.

Watch the video and judge for yourself if it was a temper tantrum or not.

The cheerleader was talking over him and not allowing him to speak so he ended the interview. BTW you should watch the whole thing.

Frank is an idiot and a criminal. He should be in jail chipping rocks with other rocks.

Are you trying to pretend that the last cheerleader was interested in interviewing him?

So, asking a rhetorical question and then proceeding to talk over him as he answers constitutes an interview in your book? If you noticed the two previous cheerleaders asked questions and let him answer. The third one did not.

Sadly most of the cable networks have adopted the fox news practice of talking over guests when they try to answer a question. Cable news truely resembles pro wrestling at times.

CNBC isn't news. It's cheer leading. The best business news is bloomberg hands down. You don't see this type of nonsense there.

Without getting into whether he was justified in ending the interview or not, I have to ask: in what universe has "freedom of the press" ever meant that the interviewee had a duty to complete an interview or to submit to the conditions of an interview without question or challenge?

That clip was 6 minutes long. Barney spoke uninterrupted for about 5 of those minutes. Yes, it was a temper tantrum.

I loved how he talked about the relationships of the board and the CEOs. The CEO picks the boards, blah blah blah, they work too closely together, labor and management become too close.

It sounds a little bit like a Democrat president appointing a Democrat to the SCOTUS and having a Democrat congress vote on it. Somehow, that's just fine.

He was interviewed by four different people. The first three were respectful enough to allow him to speak without interruption after they asked their questions. The last one, according to Barney, misrepresented something, then tried to shout him down when he tried to correct the man. I'd say that kicking the last interviewer to the curb was justified, especially if he was correct about the guy making a misrepresentation (I don't know if it was or not). That does seem to be the modus operandi for (especially) right-wing pundits of late - spin a story, then shout down any guest that tries to set the record straight. I think Bill O'Reilly started that sophomoric trend.

What a good interview. The end was a little wierd, but hardly a temper tantrum.

But the first 5 minutes of the interview was very good with lots of information on an interesting and essential topic.

Did he explain what he was thinking when he led the campaign to destroy the mortgage banking system?

(I don't know if it was or not)

Do you own any mutual funds say in a 401k? If so, how many times have you voted as a share-holder. That is a legitimate question for the interviewer to ask.

I own both stocks and mutual funds. I get to vote on stocks that I hold and not on mutual funds. Who is voting for me on the mutual funds? - The fund manager.

This was a legitimate question that needs to be answered.

It was not a temper tantrum. It was a question dodging hissy-fit.
