The Messiah

I just watched Jon Stewart extract a full confession from Jim Cramer. Watch it at http://www.thedailyshow.com . He got the man to agree that financial news reporting has been "disingenuous at best, and criminal at worst". He got the man to agree to change.

He exposed him so bad, he almost made him cry.

I had never thought I'd see something like this on TV.

Is this the first crack in the glass that separates real news reporting and analysis from the dross that passes for it today?

One can only wish.

Classic, classic JS. Though I don't think this is the crack in the glass at all. Both CNBC and TDS are for niche audiences.

//"disingenuous at best"? That's an understatement.

true both shows are for niche audiences, but it's getting discussed all over the place.

i find it breathtaking that this morning i'm seeing people criticize jon stewart for being "too serious". they really are morons, aren't they? they still don't get it.

It made it to the front page of the Times today. This thing has some legs and will be on blogs and websites for at least a few more weeks.
