Rosen Gets a Job on Squawk Box
Head RIAA truth adjustor Hilary 'Reach Out' Rosen is slated to start work on CNBC's Squawk Box, Open Exchange and Capital Report on August 1, says an RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) puff-release on its new, supposedly hack-proof, web page.
She'll, "discuss political and regulatory issues as they portend to the media, entertainment and the information industries".
That's a relief.
"I'm thrilled at the opportunity to work with the great executives, journalists and other contributors at CNBC," gushed Reach Out, continuing modestly, "Over the years, I have developed expertise in the growth and challenges continually facing the world of entertainment, media and technology and I look forward to sharing my knowledge with the viewers of CNBC."
The puff-piece also says - and we're not making this up - "Rosen appears regularly on various, influential year-end power lists".
Rumours that she'll be paid around $2 million a year are, of course, totally ridiculous.
