“After a year of A.D.D., I also had a huge hunger to be vertical for a while,” Tina Brown says in a Huffington Post entry. Here’s my favorite item on her Ten Things I Learned At Topic A post:

“Make up rooms at cable stations are the TV version of Glengarry Glen Ross. If you sit in that chair with a cape on long enough you will hear the hopes and dreams of pumped-up male anchors of shows with names like Ball Spin and Cash Cow who come crashing through the door looking for a touch up.

So which CNBC anchor (or anchors) is she referring to?
