'Fix CNBC' Campaign Takes the Fight to Wall Street, Network Headquarters

The Progressive Change Campaign Committee has released some genuinely funny video of the group taking its FixCNBC.com campaign to the sidewalks of Wall Street and the network's corporate headquarters.


The clip, spiced up with the help of HuffPost comedy bloggers Katie Halper, Lee Camp, Baratunde Thurston and Jeff Kreisler, is part of a larger effort being undertaken to get CNBC to change its organizational mission, towards more of a Wall Street watchdog. In one of the short's final reels, PCCC co-founder Adam Green delivered a 21,000-signature petition to the network's New Jersey offices. Green tells the Huffington Post that CNBC executives have acknowledged receiving and reading said petition.
