Sloan Sabbith, financial reporter, talks about Greece and signs off. MacKenzie gives her a round of applause and Sloan looks duly weirded out. MacKenzie asks if they can talk about something. MacKenzie says she noticed that Sloan referred to two companies as "which" instead of the teleprompter's "whom." Sloan says she didn't write the copy and the copy incorrectly referred to the companies as people, so she switched it. MacKenzie is apparently very impressed by this, when honestly anyone who knows anything about business news (which both MacKenzie and whoever wrote Sloan's copy should) knows that companies are singular entities and not people.
MacKenzie says she asked around and found out that Sloan could be making much more money as an analyst at Goldman Sachs. Sloan says MacKenzie could be making a lot more money as a reality TV producer. Uh... not really. That's why networks love reality shows: they're really cheap because they don't pay anyone very much. "I like my job," Sloan shrugs. MacKenzie asks her if she likes it so much that she'd be willing to work longer hours. Sloan assumes she's being offered another morning show slot and says that's not for her because she is all about Serious News because she is a Serious Economist. MacKenzie says she's offering her something in primetime: a five-minute slot on News Night to "talk about where we are and how we got here." ZZZZZ. Sloan doesn't think she's qualified enough for that and recommends some of the "professors [she] studied under." Heh heh heh. "Studied under." "They're not going to have your legs," MacKenzie smirks. How does she know? Way to assume without looking at the facts, MacKenzie.
