Jon Stewart vs. Jim Cramer  Reply with quote  

Did anyone watch Jon Stewart last night? He brought on Jim Cramer and they had a small discussion about the networks and how they portray the markets. If you didn't I believe you can stream the episode from Jon Stewart's website and I recommend watching it.

Anyhow, I had a few laughs but one thing caught my attention, it was when Jon Stewart said this (and I'm paraphrasing) "This is not a game, not when people's 401ks are being used by fund managers to fund their short term strategies when in fact a 401k is supposed to be a long term investment vehicle"

When I was laughing at the jokes and punch lines last night, I couldn't tell if I was laughing because what was being said was funny or because some of it was actually true.

One of the members on my forum posted about this too, saying something about Jon Stewart doing a better job of asking the tough questions than all the regular journalists.

Thanks for mentioning the link; I'm going to go look for that. Smile
