In this excerpt from "Squawk Box," Steve Liesman challenges Rick Santelli over his correct "prediction" the nation's unemployment rate would be reported as under 8 percent before Election Day. Liesman thinks Santelli is implying the jobs data has been intentionally fudged by the government. Rick insists he's just a "market whisperer" who has not used the word "conspiracy."
