Stewart vs. Cramer

Honestly, we're way behind this story, the feud between The Daily Show's Jon Stewart and Mr. Mad Money, Jim Cramer. Stewart has called out Cramer for doing his viewers a journalistic disservice by misrepresenting the market and offering enthusiastic advice. Last Thursday, Cramer visited Stewart's studio, to defend himself.

We've discussed it in a couple of morning meetings — just like the funny intro says, people are talking about it. But what do you think? Is it a bunch of hot air to promote a couple of cable personalities, or is there a more serious critique here? Did the media fall asleep on the biggest news story since Iraq?
