    This whole "feud" is comical. Jon Stewart is just doing what he always does, a satirical show where he takes clips and quotes and points out the idiotic things people say. Some douchebag thinks that Jon Stewart is attacking him for taking things he said out of context/only pointing out his flaws/ what the **** ever. Not news. Yet CNBC is trying to blow this up in order to get more publicity for their ****** cable financial advice. It's one thing for Cramer to stand up there and say based on the market trends, here's what I think will happen. It's a whole other issue when he says this company will not fail. It will sell at $60/share soon. The market is getting better. Invest accordingly!

    Of course some fool is going to see his show, think he knows what he's talking about and stick all their money in the next tanking Bank/Insurance Company.

      I think this is one thing a lot of people miss about The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. Neither of them are news shows, nor claim to be. Instead, they parody news shows and make satire out of them and the things that they cover. For ****'s sake, Crank Yankers used to come on before them.

        I had a friend tell me absolutely straight face and serious that he gets all his news from those two shows. I was floored by that, but he did not understand what could be shocking about that; he thought it was the most normal thing ever.

          I dont know what to tell you. I can't say I get my news from there. I keep up with what's going on around the nation/world thanks to newspapers; I just enjoy watching satire.

              Of course not, I know that investing is far from foolproof, but like Stewart said, I don't claim to be a guru, and it is irresponsible for anyone to claim intimate knowledge like CNBC does.

              Yet he claims, a the very least insinuates, they are guarantees. That is where the problem lies.
              Show me one example where Cramer has guaranteed anything. He is giving stock advice, just like THOUSANDS of other people. Ever watch BNN? Ever listen to Warren Buffet? Jim Rogers? Cramer did absolutely nothing wrong, nor did CNBC.

              Further, you do not need any sort of licensing to give out stock advice on television.

No, of course it shouldn't be illegal, but it is ethically wrong for CNBC to advertise Cramer in the way they do. They are using the phrase "In Cramer We Trust" to bring up images of an infallible god.
                So you think some guy turns on CNBC, sees the slogan "In Cramer We Trust" and assumes he is an infallible god and his stock picks are going to be right 100% of the time?

                Come on, what planet do you live on?

                  I never said you did. You need licensing to give advice for compensation directly associated with that advice.

                      Are you trying to say giving financial advice should be illegal?

                      you said that and i was going over the parameters in which you have the right to give out advice for a fee.

                        1-so, just to be clear, you have no problem with the dude on CNBC referring to the people losing their homes as "irresponsible losers"?

                        2-also, yeah, CNBC has every right to be wrong. and The Daily Show has every right to point out that they were wrong. so, what's the difference?

                          How does your friend enjoy those two shows then? In my case, i don't laugh, or appreciate the jokes as much if i don't know what's going on (don't keep up with news). I think it would be pretty pointless to watch it for news, since they hardly provide full stories, and the jokes aren't funny at all if you don't know the background on it.

                            As far as generalizations go, I don't think that's a terrible one to make. Obviously he should have worded it better but I get the point he's making. I also don't think they should be bailed out in any fashion. Americans have a NEGATIVE savings rate. That is ridiculous. For some reason people think they are entitled to have a $500k home, flat screen TVs, and two SUVs. Since a middle-class lifestyle can't afford that, they borrow the difference and now we're seeing the result of it. Is this the case for everybody that lost their home? Of course not, but the vast majority of people who did lose their home overspent and overleveraged.

                            I'm not saying there is anything wrong with the Daily Show pointing out a mistake that Cramer made in his predictions. That's what the show does. I just don't get the argument that Cramer did something "wrong" or "unethical" when all he was doing was providing his opinion on the market. It's not like he was only one who was still bullish at that time.

                              Right, but there's no fee involved so it really has no bearing on this conversation.

                                I don't know? We will have to ask him. He is a strange kid though, Peruvian and a closeted homosexual who acts exactly like Butters from South Park.
