CNBC's Brian Sullivan to MSNBC's Bashir: Have Me On to Debate Lefty Nation Writer Sometime

October 28th, 2011 5:16 PM

Nation magazine writer Ari Berman carped on today's Martin Bashir program on MSNBC that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) wants to take America back into "a new Gilded Age,"  an "era of the robber barons where the top one percent" would control the nation's wealth.

Immediately after that segment, Bashir turned to CNBC's Brian Sullivan for the day's "CNBC Market Wrap," a look looking at how the nation's stock exchanges performed today.

After discussing the "boring" but positive day on Wall Street, Sullivan added in closing that he would like to come on Bashir's program to debate Berman some time (MP3 audio here; video embedded below):

...And if you ever want me to come on and debate the guy you just had on for The Nation about the real problem of raising the 99 percent up instead of bringing the one percent down, I'll be happy to be your guest.
