CNBC coverage, stock market crash, May 6, 2010

What follows is a sequence of six Youtube clips of CNBC’s “live” coverage of the Dow crash on May 6.  As one of the commentators notes, “live pictures are just part of the story,” whether they are of the chaotic streets of Athens or the frantic floor of the stock exchange.  This video notebook is prefatory to further musings on the ideological underpinnings of the “real-time” Web, which may take as one example the media’s scramble to “cover” the vicissitudes of the market over several hours – or even to follow, to track or monitor them with accuracy.  NB: some of this is hard to stomach.
