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.
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.
