Jon Stewart To CNBC: STOP THE BS !!!

‘There’s an old saying in Tennessee–I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee–that says, fool me once, shame on–shame on you.  Fool me–you can’t get fooled again.’ — George Bush, Sept. 17, 2002

If you haven’t seen it, yet, I urge you to watch Jon Stewart’s interview with Jim Cramer of CNBC  (link at bottom of this posting…)  which in my view exemplifies well prepared, good interviewing skills, so very much lacking in today’s media world.  Those who want to dismiss Jon Stewart as a  ‘comedian with a variety show’ completely miss the mark.  Certainly, Jon Stewart is a comedian and hosts a  ‘fake news show,’  but he is so much more…and after bringing to the forefront the misdeeds of the financial network CNBC and the ensuing Jim Cramer interview, he certainly has catapulted himself into the category of serious and effective interviewers.

I consider myself somewhat of a political junkie, and try to catch the  ‘Daily Show’  whenever I can.  Even though they obviously try to make their points in a funny, often hilarious way, they most always hit the mark and point out the obvious, so often missed by the traditional media.  And by the way, statistics have shown that people who watch programs like  ‘The Daily Show’  can be counted among the politically best informed…  Maybe there is something to mixing serious news with laughs…

In his interview with Jim Cramer, who now has become the poster child for the ills of CNBC, Jon Stewart pointed out that CNBC, instead of being cheerleaders for CEOs and their failed companies, should be in the business of informing the public about what’s really going on… And he showed in detail, how  ‘financial experts’  like Jim Cramer, knowingly misled the viewing public, by telling them to buy a certain stock right before that company went bankrupt or had to be bailed out, and how they not only enabled fraud and market manipulation being committed, but actively participated in it, while people’s 401-k  funds were used as market manipulators’ personal piggy bank.  And that, as Stewart pointed out, is negligence at best, and bordering criminality at worst…

If you ask me, the likes of Jim Cramer and CNBC have done enough damage, and now, after some of them publicly attacked President Obama’s economic plan, have become flat out dangerous, and should be taken off the air.  I have a feeling that a lot of people who feel misled, will stop watching, and the free market that CNBC loves so much, will take care of it and we’ll soon be rid of all the  ‘experts’  who were so wrong about  EVERYTHING … and that’s a good thing …  🙂

Thank you, Jon Stewart…..  And message to CNBC:  You can’t fool us again!!!

Sarah And Joe: The Poster Children Of The GOP

‘Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.’ — Abraham Lincoln

….. Of the ‘Know-Nothing, Nutjob, Racist, Ignorant, Religious-Right, Extremist’ wing of the Republican Party.  After  getting only a short break in the aftermath of the election not being bombarded with them on TV, here they are back again, making ‘news.’

Sarah, Sweetheart, grow up and take responsibility for your own ignorance and inaptitude instead of whining and blaming others.  Everybody knows by now that you were completely unqualified for the position you were seeking and actually quite scary with your extremist views.  It didn’t have to take the media to point that out, you did a pretty good job yourself.

And Joe The Plumber ….. What can be said about you that hasn’t been pointed out already?  Just like Sarah, you have become a comic character.  When I heard that the conservative website ‘Pajamas News’ hired you as a ‘War Correspondent’ going to Israel, I laughed so hard, almost fell off my chair.

But it was nothing compared to the nonsense coming from you, yet again, when being interviewed about it.  Among other things, you obviously don’t feel in danger when you’re in the middle of an escalating conflict because you, as a Christian, have ‘special protection’ from GOD.  I urge you to make that statement repeatedly in the middle of Jewish and Muslim people while you’re over there, I’m sure they’ll appreciate speaking with somebody with ‘special protection.’  I mean, you can’t make this stuff up!  If it wasn’t so sad, it would be comical!

The ‘Religious and Loony Right’ has finally found their perfect poster children:  Sarah and Joe.  At this point I’m thinking, maybe I should suffer a little seeing them on TV, hopefully for a long time to come, out of pure self-interest.  The ‘Know-Nothing’ wing will feel empowered and make it very difficult for the normal Conservatives to rebuild a shattered party.

And that’s a good thing ….. It will ensure Democratic victories for a long time to come …..

So, keep it up, Sarah and Joe!

German paper ‘Hamburger Morgenpost’ celebrating Obama’s victory with this headline:

‘Bye-bye, Bush!  The end of insanity.
Starting today, there will be hope again in America —
And the world breathes a sigh of relief.’
