It is a truly sad state of affairs when the only group brave enough to chastise mainstream news outlets for dereliction of duty are a bunch of comedians.

The first thing Jon Stewart will remind Jim Cramer is the fact that Warren Buffett candidly upbraided himself in his annual letter to his shareholders. Nobody at CNBC has dared utter a word of apology or even describe a path to integrity. Everyone at CNBC--from Cramer to Santelli--is defending the total and painfully obvious journalistic incompetence of the entire CNBC franchise.

In a rational world, the government agency that allocates broadcast rights to these corporation would hold them to account for using a public resource (the airwaves) responsibly. In the United States, comedians are doing what the FCC ought to be doing.

It really can't get any stranger than this. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 173.51.1.106 (talkcontribs)

IS THIS REALLY NEWS?! Damn I just lost faith in humanity. Seriously Cramers defense is that every stock is down so anything you suggest buying is going to two dollars per share and need billions in bailout money but somehow you can't suggest buying nothing or getting out of the market. Really this is news?--151.196.21.231 02:02, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Take out "pundit," that screams a lack in neutrality and all editors know it. 71.217.2.128 09:39, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Okay, but can you fix some of the bits you've mangled with broken wikilinks and hanging sentence fragments? Then I'll sight the changes - oh, and please do not use blogs as a source. --Brian McNeil / talk 09:53, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

The sad part is of course is that the experts who put us in this mess are the same experts who have been called on to clean it up. Thankfully Stewart puts the fun ino what is really bloody sad. Experts.. who needs them! The Baldchemist —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.183.34.177 (talk) 10:58, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
