On Jon Stewart mocking CNBC and Cramer

Jon Stewart openly mocking CNBC and its unquestioning groupie worship of the financial world is something both new and welcome, especially considering that it has gotten such major attention. This signals, I think, a sea change in how the public views the world of finance.

  1. I would dispute that, Bob. I don’t think this is a sea change. I think this is a sign of the end. We have the FCC, watchdog groups and, ostensibly, competition in the news media, yet it had become incumbent upon a comedian to hold broadcasters of “news” accountable.

    This is the ultimate signs that our institutions are effectively dead. There is no enforcement and no accountability.

    That said, thank God for Stewart.
