If you missed yesterday’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, then do yourself a favor and watch it online. Not only does Jon rip CNBC and Jim Cramer a new one, he devotes a good part of the whole show to the “Decession”.
My American readers can watch the episode here:

There is the usual Daily Show edit cuts but the most damning satire is reserved for CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla interviewing Sir Allen Stanford. But more than satirizing CNBC, Stewart asks some incredibly cogent questions like, why are we, in effect, buying the same toxic assets twice?
I stopped watching CNBC, even for entertainment purposes, years ago. When the history of our time is written, I hope they and the general mainstream media get the treatment they so richly deserve.
Does anyone really watch CNBC anymore? seriously? If you do, please tell me what I might be missing. I’m sincerely curious if they have any saving graces at this point.
