It was great to see Jon Stewart drop the goofy faces and get down to some journalistic nitty-gritty last night as he blasted "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer and CNBC for glib, irresponsible "reporting" on the brewing economic collapse that amounted to "selling snake oil as vitamin tonic." Urging regular people to misspend their stocks and 401Ks, he said, "is not a game."
"(Wall Street) burned the f------ house down with our money, and you guys knew!" he exclaimed, to loud applause. "It was disingenuous at best, and criminal at worst."
