It’s Bernie Madoff Day on the business networks, as a judge is set to rule shortly on whether the financier should have his bail revoked and be jailed immediately. Correspondents on every network have been reporting live from Madoff’s Upper East Side apartment as well as the court house, including those for the cablers. CNBC employed a “Madoff Watch” box in the lower right corner of the screen, showing a live shot of his apartment during non-Madoff segments, around 6amET — FBN followed suit a few hours later. There’s also a “Bail Ruling” countdown in place on both networks:
