John Stewart vs. CNBC / Jim Cramer, Part III

The extended version of the Jim Cramer appearance on the Daily Show. Jon Stewart destroyed him. And Megan McArdle seems annoyed by it all. How dare primetime TV transcend empty entertainment?

John Stewart vs. CNBC / Jim Cramer, Part II

Jon Stewart Still At His Peak

Leave it Jon Stewart and the staff at The Daily Show to nail CNBC's Rick Santelli and his faux, bullshit populism. Jon Stewart is one of the only people in the mainstream media to have a rebuttal for Mr. Santelli's absurd, yet highly popular rant from the floor of the CME in February.

Jon Stewart Rips Nancy Grace Over The Duke Case Fiasco

Last Thursday, Jon Stewart was absolutely brilliant (well, he usually is). I love his anger. Here, he gives Nancy Grace a long-overdue smackdown. This is as good as a Media Matters essay, just with more humor.

Nancy Grace took a convenient vacation day on Wednesday, when the charges were dropped. She will never apologize to the three boys who were charged. This simply highlights how she has no respect for our legal system or the concept of 'innocent until proven guilty' at all. She's entertaining as hell. But she is not a legal scholar or even a decent journalist. She's what I call a raving 'victims rights' fanatic run amok. And never mind she launched her media career by capitalizing on (and embelishing) the murder of her fiance in 1979.
