Jon Stewart Skewers CNBC

Last night the Daily Show tore into CNBC after Squawk Box anchor Rick Santelli cancelled a scheduled appearance on the show. Santelli recently gained notoriety for what Stewart called a “cheap populist” outburst opposing bailouts for homeowners.

In a segment called “CNBC Gives Financial Advice,” no talking head was safe, as Stewart calls out Jim Cramer, the entire Fast Money crew, Maria Bartiromo, Charlie Gasparino, and others for throwing softballs to CEOS, creating panic in the markets, missing the warning signs of the banking crisis, and being just plain wrong.

He ends the rant with the wonderfully evil line, “If only I had followed CNBC’s advice, I’d have a million dollars… provided I had started with a hundred million dollars.”
