John Stewart is one of the smartest comedienes around. His take on real world events (important stuff that effects us all) gives weight to the quotation that "many a truth is said in jest".
The recent showdown between Jon Stewart and Jim Cramer on "The Daily Show" highlighted the fact that Cramer's "Mad Money" show was nothing more than a ratings driven escapade, mocking the very audience it claimed to enlighten. There are disturbing video clips that question Cramer's ethics and credibility. I'm not a lawyer, but some of what Cramer said (and did) appeared to blur the boundary of what's legal and what's not.
I think John Stewart was brilliant as he said what many from the investing public would like to. Cramer on the other hand bumbled along and shrugged his way through the exchange. Take a look and decide for yourself.
