      Niceoneniceoneniceone Sunny. I watched the whole thing. Jon Stewart is really gracious to the guy. He realises he has become the face of all this- and gives him a really good save for free at the end. If Kramer lives up to what he shook on progress can be made? I hope so, cheers for linking.

      I wouldn’t be too sure of Cramer learning his lesson…

      Thanks for this link - I do really like Stewart’s style of interviewing.

      Lol … I wouldn’t be surprised if Cramer’s colleagues at CNBC are ripping him a new one as well! Even though I think the blame needs to shared for the crisis, the public have lost a lot more money than they had any right to, and the guy’s ‘okay, okay, hands up, I’m guilty’ squirming was a joy to see, pitiful as it was. From Stewart’s perspective, JS had a strong view backed up by excellent research - from a comedy talk show host as well!

      Now, with Cramer doing what he did and Cameron apologising for not spotting the crisis earlier, are we going to see a flood of apologies as the next new thing? If the trend does take off, I imagine many will try to score points of fake humility.

      PS - Perhaps Cramer needs to rename his so ‘Sad Money’.

      “I wouldn’t be surprised if Cramer’s colleagues at CNBC are ripping him a new one as well!”

      I would not be too sure of that, the last thing CNBC wants is to prolong the confrontation and see their butts kicked even longer. No wonder Cramer is avoiding the issue.

      I watched the whole interview on More4 last night and I’ve got to say that Jon Stewart really opened fire with both barrels, didn’t he — he’s obviously an excellent comedian but he’s also a very tough cookie when necessary.

      Much smarter and tougher than some people may realise, I think (as Cramer found out). I don’t think I’d ever seen Jon Stewart so angry on his show before.

      Outstanding interview. He’s got guts.

      JR - my bad, I meant internally…it would be too much for CNBC to lambast one of their own infront of all of us.
