Jon Stewart keeps up the pressure on CNBC

I mentioned Letterman's attack on McCain after McCain failed to show in my previous post on the Jon Stewart vs CNBC battle. Well Jon heard me and so appeared on Letterman and continued the onslaught.

His takedown is short and brutal, behold.
"The thing that upsets me the most, honesty, there are three 24-hour financial networks," Stewart complained. "All their slogans are like, 'We know what's going on on Wall Street.' But then you turn it on during the crisis, and they're like, 'We don't know what's going on!' It'd be like turning on The Weather Channel in a hurricane, and they're just doing this: 'Why am I wet? What's happening to me? And it's so windy! What's going on, I'm scared!' How do you not know?
