This just gets better and better and NBC seems to be giving Cramer a lot of air time on every show and now hosts like that pinch-mouthed dummy Scarborough are chiming in. He must be hoping to get trashed for the PR value. They should just drop it and leave Stewart alone before he starts to dig deeper into the trash. Now I hear that Cramer may be on Stewart’s Thursday show. Canadians who cannot view these videos can go to thecomedynetwork.ca

    Most commentators, pundits, experts on the market are little Cramers.

    Know what I mean?

  2. Olo Baggins of Bywater says:

    I agree with John..if those guys don’t STFU soon and this hits mainstream press in a big way, Cramer’s job is toast.

  3. Rob says:

    Cramer is actually being pretty smart about this. He isn’t bashing Stewart but simply calling him a comedian, which he is. Cramer will go on The Daily Show, have a few laughs and that will be that. Scarborough is taking this all too seriously and picking a fight with a funnyman. It’s like picking a fight with a little kid. You just end up looking like a jerk.

  4. bobbo says:

    #3–Rob==”Cramer is actually being pretty smart about this.” /// hah, hah.

    Smart in a Boss Limbaugh sort of way.

    Stewart is not a funnyman but more accurately a social satirist with facts and the truth (film clips) on his side.

    The “truth” is that Stewart is skewering the entire financial pundit class as well they should be. Let me be your pundit: “Buy, buy, buy—always buy, buy, buy.”

    They are all charlatans and fools upon any investigation.

    Wise up (America).

  5. PMitchell says:

    #4 the daily show would not know a fact if it hit them in the face Stewart is a left wing hard core leftist and not ashamed of it

    the sad thing is fools think his crap is funny I just find it a sad commentary on Liberalism : tolerance for only those causes liberals like and lies and scorn for those they disagree with

    #2, Mr. Baggins,

    I’m not so sure only Cramer’s job is jeopardized. Because of the meltdown, the whole CNBC concept is the one on the hook.

    I don’t care for Scarborough. Like so many of the TV hosts on the edges, he has to be controversial to gain attention and thus an audience.

  7. bobbo says:

    #5–PMitchell==please don’t reference “me” as the stimulus for your nonsensical rambling irrelevant fantastical dogmas.

    Try instead to make one clear point?===doesn’t even have to be relevant to this thread.

  8. Mr. Fusion says:

    #5, Paul Mitchel,

    #4 the daily show would not know a fact if it hit them in the face Stewart is a left wing hard core leftist and not ashamed of it

    So what did the Daily Show get wrong in any of their stories?

    It seems to me that if they said Cramer said something and then show a video clip of Cramer actually saying it, they got it pretty good.

  9. Olo Baggins of Bywater says:

    PMitchell…
    the daily show would not know a fact if it hit them in the face

    Yeah, they just recreate all those videos, they’re all fake.

    Don’t worry, once this administration settles in there will be plenty of nonsense on both sides, and from what I’ve seen he’ll take shots at anyone. Just because most of the shots are towards the side with an over-abundance of idiots doesn’t mean he’s not being fair…it just means one side is full of idiots.

  10. Brian says:

    The funniest thing about Stewart’s show are the idiotic, moronic right-wing douchebags (like PMMitchell) who think it’s a news show. Dude, its a COMEDY show on COMEDY CENTRAL. When you start realizing that then you’ll be a lot better off.

    And his criticisms of Cramer and his ilk are spot on – Cramer is perceived as a god and his knowledge is always right, when his track record on buying and selling since his show has started has actually been worse than 50/50. Meaning if you just flipped a coin on a buy or sell recommendation you’d be more right than Cramer with all of his ‘research’ and yelling.

  11. Stewart is one of the latest and best of a long line of folks doing political satire on TV.

    The difference between him and Scarborough Rush, O’Reilly and their ilk is Stewart knows he’s doing satire and is less loose with the facts.

    He’s there to entertain don’t worry when the current Whitehouse has there scandals Stewart will be there.

    This is kind of the satire is one of the best uses of the First Amendment.

    I’m still laughing at Dora’s Spanish lesson.

  12. Rob says:

    I’m not saying the Cramer’s past comments weren’t wrong or that Stewart isn’t correct in lambasting him over it. I’m simply saying that The Daily Show isn’t hard journalism per se and it would be foolish for Cramer to debate facts with a guy who is looking for laughs. It seems he realizes this isn’t an option, unlike Scarborough. If Cramer doesn’t toss in a few Mea Culpas on Thursday Stewart will make him look like an even bigger clown (if that’s possible)

    What I can’t wait for is for Stewart to disect Scarborough in the same fashion. Talk about a blowhard…

  13. MikeN says:

    They’ve already had them, and I think Stewart covered them.

    Did they get the full treatment that Obama critic Cramer got?

  14. Hyph3n says:

    According to the Comedy Central website, Jim Cramer will be on the Daily Show on Thursday.

    #12–Rob==”I’m simply saying that The Daily Show isn’t hard journalism per se and it would be foolish for Cramer to debate facts with a guy who is looking for laughs.”

    Whats your definition of hard journalism?

    In what way is your hard journalism more important/relevant than biting sarcasm that hits it mark?

    Please link to the more important hard news items that have covered what corrupt fools the main stream media have been in their coverage of stock market pundits.

    Silly Rabbit.

  16. PMitchell says:

    Brian the sad thing is all you liberal douch bags do think he is news. I see him quoted regularly on your lefty lib blogs and quoted here

    so who is the real douche bag now

  17. eaze says:

    I can’t believe I just realised, you work for this blog don’t you Bobbo?

  18. Olo Baggins of Bywater says:

    PMitchell, no, there’s no mistaking Stewart for news. His “news” segments are fake, and obviously so. It’s parody, and anyone whothinks otherwise needs just to watch a few shows. He’s quoted because he’s better than Letterman or Leno, usually, and because his take on the real news is usually very funny. He gets great guests, too.

    By his own description last night, his job is not cherry-picking, it’s turd-mining.

  19. Richard L. says:

    I didn’t know about Jim Cramer until I saw the bit on the Daily Show. But the thing is, I recognized him from the IronMan movie playing himself doing the same thing he does normally, which I thought at the time I was watching the movie, was an exaggerated bit from a real guy.

  20. prh says:

    I hope Stewart gets a hold of this

    were Cramer admits to manipulating the market on The Street. Might want to download it cause I have a feeling it will get pulled.

  21. Hugh Ripper says:

    #5 “Stewart is a left wing hard core leftist”

    Hes left of left? Thats pretty far left!

    Sheesh talk about getting hysterical over Stewart. Sure, hes unashamedly a Democrat and a liberal and there is a definite Democrat bias in his work, but hes nowhere near as feral as someone on the other side like Limbaugh, and he generally gets his facts right.

  22. JCanada says:

    How soon we forget Crossfire on CNN. Maybe Stewart will have the same effect…

    It is REALLY depressing that the most reliable “news” is on a COMEDY channel… USA! USA!

    Bravo boys…

    “It is REALLY depressing that the most reliable “news” is on a COMEDY channel…”

    Or sometimes this blog.

  24. Selvy says:

    Actually the funny thing is that he seems more INTERESTED in what’s happening than many of the journalists out there. Yes he’s liberal but he doesn’t pretend to be impartial (like Bill Moyer, etc.)…It’s a fun show about news and I don’t see him as being a mouthpiece or propagandist for the left, unlike ‘journalists’ George Stephanopolist, etc…Jon presents what he likes, puts a smart twist on it, and it’s amusing. Clever, but not a mean guy.

    As for Cramer, he’s no worse (or as worse) as the guys on Wall Street who were telling people to buy X, Y, and Z. Generally if one of these financial groups is telling you to do something, do something different. It’s market manipulation, with only certain people at the top being positioned to benefit. Wasn’t there a short piece somewhere about how last year’s financial crash was in part precipitated by a $550 billion run on the banks or?…I’ll have to look that one up later.

  25. Cap'nKangaroo says:

    Maybe it is the cynic in me, but I wonder if it is possible that this tempest in a teapot is a publicity stunt. Cramer appears on Stewart’s show, says sorry for a miserable call in hindsight, and then whips out a new book (maybe about his worst blunders and what he learned from them). Stewart gets bigger ratings, especially among the more coveted demographics. Everybody goes home happy.
