John Stewart vs. Rick Santelli

Don't mess with John Stewart and The Daily Show.

Rick Santelli of CNBC was supposed to be on The Daily Show last night, but CNBC nixed that after Santelli's recent rant against President Obama and the firestorm that has occurred. John Stewart then lit into Santelli, Jim Kramer, and all of CNBC.

While it was depressing to see just how far we've fallen over the last 2 years, Stewart, as always, was spot on and the result was hilarious.

Score one for John Stewart and The Daily Show. Rick Santelli, the ball is in your court.

Update: Read "What Battered Newsrooms Can Learn from Stewart's CNBC Takedown" by Will Bunch on the Huffington Post.


  1. He gutted CNBC last night and they were completely deserving of it. Like the rest of press, CNBC fell down in their coverage of the financial world. Their lack of curiosity in regards to Allan Stanford's miracle investments was particularly appalling.

  2. I sooooo love Jon Stewart. He has such a gift for seeing thru the B.S. and just cutting to the chase.

    I think he should be required viewing. Remember the saying, "A chicken in every pot?". I think it should now be: "Jon Stewart in every home."

    Last night Keith Olberman made me laugh out loud. He calls Ann Coulter: Coultergeist
