On "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart blasted Jim Cramer in last night's face to face battle in the long-range war of words they have been fighting this week:
Stewart repeatedly bashed Crammer, the host of CNBC's "Mad Money" for putting entertainment above journalism:
- "I understand that you want to make finance entertaining, but it's not a ... game," Stewart told Cramer, adding in an expletive during the show's Thursday taping. The episode was scheduled to air at 11 p.m. EDT on Comedy Central.
- In his opening, Stewart announced that it was "go time." He played a video clip of Cramer's Thursday guest appearance on "The Martha Stewart Show" in which Cramer beat a mound of dough, pretending it was Stewart.Said Stewart: "Mr. Cramer, don't you destroy enough dough on your own show?"
- Stewart said he and Cramer are both snake-oil salesman, only "The Daily Show" is labeled as such. He claimed CNBC shirked its journalistic duty by believing corporate lies, rather than being an investigative "powerful tool of illumination." And he alleged CNBC was ultimately in bed with the businesses it covered - that regular people's stocks and 401Ks were "capitalizing your adventure."
