Last week, Jon Stewart poked fun at the media who cheer-led the housing and stockmarket bubbles and are now blaming the people who took on subprime mortgages for the financial crisis. They bit back with hilarious results.

Jon is interviewing Cramer today, it will screen Friday night here on C4.

    Why are we laughing at this? Its outrageous. Still, even in the bleakest moments its often the black humour that gets me through.

    Fuck the MSM!

    That’s some of the best American TV I have EVER seen… Thanks.

    Fantastic. I actually laughed till I cried when I saw this over the last few nights. I can’t wait to see Cramer on there.

    Capcha : inter candidates…

      It’s great but the thing is Jon is just too nice a guy to really hammer him in the interview.

    Laughed till I fell off my chair.

    Brilliant! I can’t imagine what Cramer will have to say.

    “It?s great but the thing is Jon is just too nice a guy to really hammer him in the interview.”

    Stewart can hold his own in an interview and I suspect Cramer has wound him up enough to really get him going! Check out the link below – Stewart was invited on Crossfire (a now defunct CNN political “debate” show) to talk about his book (and the fact that he slams them regularly on his show) and they clearly underestimated him, thinking he’d just be a funny guy.

    have you seen the aristocrats?

    Jon’s the only comedian who won’t do a dirty version of the joke. I wondered at the time if he didn’t want that kind of thing hanging around for a political run. Politically, it’s one thing to make slighty dodgy jokes on his show, another to tell a version of the world’s filfthiest joke.

    I’m too tired to type a long comment right now; but here is my bottom line.

    I am now convinced that the ONLY way this global collapse will be turned around is when the private banks, and finance companies are wiped out. Their boards, shareholders and bondholders must be shown the door empty-handed; massive amounts of unrepayable debt reset to zero, and their remaining essential banking business nationalised and run according to strict prudential standards. It be will ugly, painful and dangerous; but unless this gangrenous limb is cut off, it will kill us.

    The power and tyranny of money must be broken. It must be made to serve humanity instead of enslaving us.

      Snarky post, with link to more bad news on this front.

      Sure let the crap institutions fail but I don’t know why you would want to include the good institutions in your cull – what have they done wrong ?

      I’d also caution against –

      1. Letting the punters who invested with some of those cak institutions off scott free
      2. Expecting nationalisation of the banking sector to solve the problem as there have been notable failures in the public sector over the years as well, governance can be just as bad in public institutions as in private ones.

      Certainly running the banks to stricter standards whether public or private you would imagine could’ve prevented the vast amount of the current problems worldwide.

      • BLiP 8.2.1

        What! You are saying government has a role to play in the regulation and monitoring of banks? That the market cannot sustain banks within a loose regulatory environment?

        Surely not . . .

    Bloody hell, there I was thinking it was all Michael Cullen’s fault. Shows how wrong you can be I guess 🙂

    RedLogix: I understand what you are saying as I have been thinking the same thing for months now. As there is stiil no end in sight, at what point will the money run out, if it hasn’t already?

    i never knew all that stuff
    I always thought recessions were organised by the government to curb the limitless expectations of runaway optimism by hoodwinked masses of people who think the goodtimes are gunna last forever and moreover their rights a s consumers are superior to any other claims on the earths resources
    silly me
    carbon particulates
    ozone layers
    acid oceans
    lost species
    an all the rest notwithstanding
