Just a programming heads up, Potato Nation. Tonight when your grandfather falls asleep watching CNBC’s grim recap of the day’s activity on Wall Street, you might not want to steal the remote from out of his mottled hands and risk waking him up in the middle of a WW II flashback.
Instead, keep it locked for CNBC’s second special report on the rise of the UFC. After the apparent success of “From Blood Sport to Big Time,” CNBC returns tonight with “Ultimate Fighting: Fistful of Dollars” at 10 pm EST. In answer to your question, yes, a computer software program is writing these titles. It’s a slight variation on the one that writes those purposely ill-informed newspaper articles on the scourge of this new-fangled human-dogfighting business. Ask your grandfather about it when he wakes up. Maybe he can make sense of the twisted logic.
