Jon Stewart and The Daily Show eat Jim Cramer/CNBC alive

In an appearance that just begs getting talked about on the “interscape”, The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart invited CNBC Mad Money host Jim Cramer to his show for a one-on-one to air their differences in front of the camera for a full episode last night. Though the lead-in intro was noticeably lighthearted, mocking the nature of their recent “feud”, the interview was one of the hardest hitting and most rewarding that I’ve seen Stewart ever give. The interview opened with a few softball questions, but while it proceeds, Stewart grows more resolute as he realizes Cramer is ducking his questions and giving him answers he can’t stand behind. With an arsenal of stock interview footage at his back, Stewart goes in for the kill. So far, this is the most satisfying commentary on the media that I’ve seen during the financial crisis. Stewart is taking on some great opponents, and he’s taking them to the cleaners.

  1. Jon Stewart handed Cramer his arse!

    Wall Street is supposed to have an early warning system that if something is amiss it will self correct in time to avoid a collapse of the system. That early warning system is known as price action. In other words, the trading price of Citigroup, Merrill Lynch, Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and AIG should have begun a downward trajectory years ago as these firms loaded up on leveraged junk. There is only one possible scenario to explain why this did not happen: trading in the market was rigged. That is the root of the problem which Jon Steward is getting to with his questions.

    Now thanks to Jim Cramer, the public now knows how easy it is for an insider to manipulate the market and get a stock prices to move up or down. Jon Stewart has opened the floodgates. Let the hearings begin.
