Stewart creams Cramer on ‘Daily Show’

Comedy Central host hammers CNBC personality

Jon Stewart hammered Jim Cramer and his network, CNBC, in their anticipated face-off on “The Daily Show.”

In an interview taped Thursday afternoon that went far beyond its allotted time, Stewart repeatedly chastised the “Mad Money” host and CNBC for putting entertainment above journalism. He also accused the financial news network of willfully ignoring corporate dishonesty.

For his part, Cramer disagreed with Stewart on a few points, but mostly agreed that he could have done a better job foreseeing the economic collapse. Cramer called himself a “fan of the show” and said his network was “fair game” to Stewart’s criticism.

“The Daily Show” otherwise cloaked their headline-grabbing feud in humor, calling it “the weeklong feud of the century.”
