John Stwart v. Jim Cramer... mano e mano.. tonight.

The show has been taped and according to this article, Stewart rips Cramer a new one.

This is actually getting pretty damn interesting. CNBC deserves to be thrown under the bus for some of the horse shit they've produced.

I bet Al P has it TIVO'ed.

Quote:
NEW YORK (AP) - Jon Stewart hammered Jim Cramer and his network, CNBC, in their anticipated face-off on "The Daily Show."

In an interview taped Thursday afternoon that went far beyond its allotted time, Stewart repeatedly chastised the "Mad Money" host and CNBC for putting entertainment above journalism. He also accused the financial news network of willfully ignoring corporate dishonesty.

For his part, Cramer disagreed with Stewart on a few points, but mostly agreed that he could have done a better job foreseeing the economic collapse. Cramer called himself a "fan of the show" and said his network was "fair game" to Stewart's criticism.

"The Daily Show" otherwise cloaked their headline-grabbing feud in humor, calling it "the weeklong feud of the century."

The episode airs 11 p.m. EDT Thursday on Comedy Central.

As much as I like Stewart telling it like it should be told, anyone else find this a little hypocritical about talk of wealth is work. Isn't Stewart all for Obama and his socialist policy. But great questions and nice push by Stewart. Sorry for giving some up denny LOL

Wow, Stewart ripped him a new asshole.

Pretty much showed the entire world that Jim Cramer is a douche.

Who the hell is Stewart to call anyone out for putting entertainment over journalism... he is a comedian not a journalist...

Both of them are idiots that shouldn't be on TV...

I think Stewart actually covered that in the interview. He stated the BOTH he and Cramer were "snake oil" salesmen. The difference is the Stewart actually tells everyone that it is snake oil.

You're right, he isn't a journalist. But isn't it telling that he has done more to expose CNBC's bullshit than anyone else on TV? You don't see Katie Couric taking on these assholes? You don't see Fox, MSNBC, NBC, CNN, CBS, ABC, or (insert MSM outlet here) going after these guys. Sure there are some exceptions but by in large none of them have really thrown these jackasses under the bus as they deserve.

The "journalists" aren't doing their jobs.

Why? Because Jon is pointing out the corruption that is going on in our financial world. What makes him any less capable of doing that?

Cramer looked defeated. He was trying to salvage some respect, but honestly, he had no acceptable answers for John Stewart's criticisms.

overall, don't really care for stewart's show, but that was a damn solid interview and props to him for not giving in to cramers beaten dog act/im on your side act.

Sgt. Beavis said "The "journalists" aren't doing their jobs. " No one ever said any thing more true. When Mr. & Mrs. Obama had a major visit by a British prime minister Mr. Gordon Brown & his wife. They almost ignored them and the British press had a field day with the news. Our Obama loving press said nothing or very little. What a shame to treat friends that way then have the press ignore the way they were treated, it's just crazy. (had Bush done something so stupid the press would have cut him to pieces)

We donít need to restore the American Dream; we need to wake up from it.

When the rich run out of money, itís over.

I didn't watch it all but I'm glad Stewart admitted he's not a journalist.

It is telling, the thing that annoys me is Stewart is bitching about banks and how"serious" it is but I didn't (and don't) see Stewart calling out Obama for some of the skeletons in his closet.

I don't see him talking about the trillions of dollars of debt Obama and the Dems have created in less than two months... I would argue that is just as serious...

I don't see Stewart bitching about Barney Frank or the Community Reinvestment Act. There are lots of reasons we're in this mess but blaming Kramer and CNBC seems stupid to me.

You wont get an argument from me, the journalists are skipping down the road to hell and enjoying the ride with the politicians.

At this point, I'm just hoping that we can clean up the mess after Obama, Pelosi, Frank, Reed and the rest of these idiots are gone... If the republican party doesn't get their shit together, this country is going to end up becoming another half-ass european country...

Please dont misunderstand. As I said above, I dont have a problem with him calling them out. I just think he is calling out the wrong person. I would have a lot more respect for him if he would quit swinging from Obama's nuts and start calling a spade a spade.... across the board...

A spade? LOL. That would be racist.

I agree. There are many that need to be called out.

Anyone who has to listen to Jim Cramer in order to increase their net worth doesnt need to be investing. You can get some good info from CNBC but just because some talking head says buy this or that doesnt mean you should. Its a gamble and you cant blame Cramer or CNBC for your loss. You make the play based on what you think sometimes your right sometimes your wrong. Im sure Warren Buffet isnt blaming CNBC for the money he lost in 2008.
