CNBC’s Fast Money Races West

Does San Jose, California qualify as Main Street, USA?

Well, in any case, it’s several thousand miles from Wall Street. And on Friday, CNBC’s Fast Money with Dylan Ratigan will be broadcasting live from the Computer History Museum in San Jose, CNBC announced today. The cross-country brand extension, according to a CNBC press release, is part of a broader "cradle of innovation tour." No word yet on how the Fox Business Network, which had suggested it plans to position itself as Main Street to CNBC’s Wall Street,might counter.

Although, the front lawn of, say, the Computer History Association of California, must look mighty tempting right about now.
