CNBC turned Ricky Gervais' Apple roast into a YouTube

Remember when the British comedian made Tim Cook squirm at the Golden Globes (Cook's first and Gervais' last)?

Cue the video:

My take: Don't know how I missed this cheap shot when the business network posted it 40,000 views ago on Jan. 6, 2020. I must have been distracted by other news.

    The snippet is not very clever, not very amusing, and arguably fake news.

    As always, Apple’s success speaks for itself.

    A lot of comedy is based on slightly distorting the truth, usually in a humerous way. A Roast takes the same principle, but exaggerates it greatly. Therefore it may have an entertainment angle, but usually does not contain information that one would want to remember, much less base any decisions on.

    A roast is supposed to be funny. Gervais was definitely not funny.
