That's the gist of it... although you should remember that it's "patriotic dissent". As we all remember from the Bush years, being critical of our leaders is our duty as Americans.

Also Krugman's criticism of Obama is from Obama's left - something Stewart probably agrees with. To them the danger is that Obama is not Leftist enough. Santelli and Cramer were coming from Obama's right which is a completely different thing to a committed socialist like Stewie.

Re: Jon Stewart Wins Cramer Showdown

What if someone not to the left and not to the right but dead center criticized him? You know, someone just like him? :thumb:

Re: Jon Stewart Wins Cramer Showdown

well, he is left of center, and he does use the "i'm just a comedian" cop out too quickly (if he's just a comedian, why take CNBC to task like that? and it's not like this is the first societal issue he's done this on (crossfire etc)).

Re: Jon Stewart Wins Cramer Showdown

The one thing I'll always remember about Dykstra, besides the wad of tobacco he always had in his lip, was the year he came out all jacked up with about 20 extra lbs of muscle. One of the most glaringly obvious examples of roid abuse I had ever seen.

Yeah cuz he had the big ass veins popping out of his biceps and the whole nine yards. And his skin looked like he was oozing human growth hormone in the form of grease.

And he went from about 170 lbs to having Popeye forearms overnight.

How many true comedians are there? The ones I see now days can only scream out four letter words to get a cheap laugh. Yes I do find some of them funny but I also realize their lack of talent.

the reality is they're just an entertainment channel though, so they care about ad dollars and viewership above journalistic standards, which is sad, but pretty common today.


also, the timing was because ricky made some stupid comments alluding that this whole mess is poor people's fault alone as if the greedy mortgage banking industry or lobbyists/politicians had no part in it - so stewart took that to task... then cramer butted in, because he didn't feel that all the comments made were fair, so stewart did a redux.

that explains the timing... no conspiracies needed.

as far as the daily show not always being fair... he only said his show wasn't fair like 14 times during the interview - he has a writing staff of 18 (i think) and editorial control. the unedited interview (over 22min) is online on the daily show's site though, and really cramer and stewart don't have any ill will towards each other; other people just made this out to be a bigger deal than it was - his real beef was with experts' lack of foresight or follow-through, not cramer.
I just clicked on this thread for the first time and have no clue about any of this stuff but I do know this. CNBC is not a premiere network on any subject and one would be foolish to take any financial advise from them.
