Cramer is scheduled to appear on The Daily Show tomorrow too. Maybe Stewart should ask Cramer about his statement in 2006 that he deliberately manipulated the markets.
In light of the current economic crisis, and with the hullabaloo ignited recently by Jon Stewart over the accuracy of CNBC’s reporting, we thought it might be useful to revisit this 2006 interview Jim Cramer gave to TheStreet.com’s Aaron Task.
In it, the host of Mad Money says he regularly manipulated the market when he ran his hedge fund. He calls it “a fun game, and it’s a lucrative game.” He suggests all hedge fund managers do the same. “No one else in the world would ever admit that, but I could care. I am not going to say it on TV,” he quips in the video.
