I saw that, and it was great, but didn't it come about because their scheduled CNBC guest cancelled? If he thinks so little of CNBC, why have one of their anchors on the show?

Maybe to ask him the tough questions CNBC won't ask their guests?

CNBC broadcasts market opinion 14 hours a day, 5 days a week.

I'm shocked that Stewart could find clips like those.

That smackdown was a thing of beauty.

Even better was a segment on the same night's Colbert Report mocking a regular feature on Glenn Beck's show that spectulates on doomday scenarios. Pure. Comedy. Gold.

no, that we have breathless caffeination that passes as business analysis.

i think that's what Stewart was getting at. not that people were wrong, but in how the wrongness was packaged and sold as a television channel who's real M.O. was to perform fellatio on Big Business and further along the cult of Wall Street worship.

that, and the fact that Rick Santelli is a jackass.

Stewart is a comedian who was stood up by a CNBC guest. I don't read any more or less into his piece on the Daily Show.

I think that transparency on business news has improved quite a bit since the dot.com crash. You would probably disagree. Do you think that business news channels should exist, and who should operate them?


Anyway, here is CNBC minion Jim Cramer and his rebuttal to Press Secretary Gibbs and Mr. Stewart:

regardless of if jim cramer offers accurate opinions or not, he could probably present himself better by not running around the studio like a jumped up fuckwit every time i see him.

Good clip of Cramer responding to media criticism on MSNBC (cousin of CNBC and owned by General Electric). It's definitely worth a watch though.

I didn't see him tonight (March 10th) but Stewart responded to Cramer's rebuttal last night (March 9th).

Jim Cramer didn't recommend buying Bear Stearns stock a week before it collapsed -- he did it five days earlier

I agree.

It's not that someone who 'forecasts', might be 'wrong' or that it is anything novel or 'gotcha!'.

It's that the whole nature of their programming is to attract viewers and therefore jerk-off the business community.

They aren't providing a service, they are just providing a product to be sold to that community. It's sort of like Fox News or MSNBC, they aren't biased because of political ambition, it's just a scheme or a strategy to increase viewership.

So CNBC is to objective business news as these others are to their supposed news niches. Coveting a demographic. Which is The Daily Show's pretty consistent view towards cable news in general. "You guys aren't journalists!!!
