Jon Stewart Rips CNBC in Epic Rant

By March 5, 2009

Follow me on:

Jon Stewart vs. CNBC No one is better at holding the media accountable for peddling BS than Jon Stewart, and last night, he subjected CNBC to one of the greatest beat-downs of all time.

Stewart's guest was supposed to be CNBC's Rick Santelli, who recently made headlines for delivering an angry on-air tirade against homeowner bailouts. But after he canceled his Daily Show appearance, Stewart used the opportunity to blast CNBC for its unapologetic Wall Street cheerleading, softball interviews with CEOs, and general worthlessness.

The money quote: "If I had only followed CNBC's advice, I'd have a million dollars today -- provided I started out with $100 million dollars."

Watch Jon Stewart's epic rant against CNBC.

I was so happy to see that last night. One of the best pieces The Daily Show has ever done. CNBC makes Faux Noise look moderate. Anyone remember how they begged to have TARP go through but now cry over a people without much money losing their homes? Great job. Santelli not showing up and angering Stewart was the best thing to happen to The Daily Show in a long time.

Wouldn’t we all be better off if William Kristol and James Cramer changed jobs?

Jon stewart is just using Cramer to cover up the Bernie Madeoff scandel.

what would eliel Weissel say to that.

Why not just accept responcibility for the crimes that madeoff has perptrated on the world and stop trying to cover up by airing other peoples landry and diverting attention.

it would be cathartic for him and his people.

typical Jon stewart. He is a trojan comedian who gets into your living room with humor then spills his agenda and supports his narrow constituency.
