Cramer vs Stewart - KO Blow

John Stewart ran an amazing interview last night. It is the KO Blow in the Cramer vs Stewart series and needs to be seen. I will embed the three unedited not show on TV versions of the interview. Additionally I will put up the CBS Evening News summary and coverage of the interview. I won't be able to show any MSNBC coverage since the producers of MSNBC were told not to mention it today. Quite sad considering GE owns CNBC, NBC and MSNBC. For shame NBC, but it is a good illustration how ownership of multiple radio stations, TV stations and newspapers should be limited as it was in the 1980s. This mass ownership creates censorship rules favorable to their corporate master.

Just a quick note. I was very impressed with Jon Stewart, he was obviously in command of the materials and research. Play clip 202, play clip 212, etc, in response to Cramer's answers to various questions. Jon Stewart is what journalism should be and it is sad that he outshines those who make it their chosen profession. I do wish for real journalism on shows such as Meet the Press, but it is rarely evident.
