Jim Cramer vs. Jon Stewart

Here is the unedited version of the Jim Cramer Daily Show interview that aired last night.

Its always fun to see Jon Stewart go after those in the media for ignoring their journalistic responsibility (see his appearance on Crossfire for another example) and this was no exception. The interview is certainly not unbiased or objective, but it is incredibly (and terrifyingly) informative. Stewart takes financial journalism to task here and Cramer can do little more than apologize and promise that he'll do better.

As much as I like the Daily Show, and I like it a heck of a lot, its a bit sad that the best and most articulate political commentary is coming from a comedy show. What a weird world we live in where the only show to call out the financial news for its complicatedness in the events that led to the current financial crisis has Futurama as its lead in.

Not that I don't also really like Futurama...
