All over the networks, except the obvious two

On every network news, except NBC for obvious reasons, and Fox.

Cramer was skipping scheduled TV apperances this morning

http://thinkprogress.org/2009/03/13/cramer-morning/

It started with a staged rant from a former unknown Rick Santelli.

With a jump on the bandwagon from Cramer calling Obama a commy etc etc etc.

John Stewart cleaned house, this is the funny one that went viral. No idea how many views, youtube yanked it due to copy right issues.

Wonder what people will be talking about on Sunday morning.

I saw this on Fox.

Jon Stewart is a comedian and this was a Comedy Central clip! neener!
This is your idea of news? So Stewart vented on Cramer - big deal! I think its hilarious that all the MSM has made a big deal of it.

I agree with the Rick Santelli rant. Thumbs up

Actually that is not true.
Fox covered it but not as news, which is what Fox is known for, unbiased, truthful and accurate news. That can't be said for others you mentioned

It also appears as the video of the day and was discussed on the Bill O'reilly Show which airs on...you guessed it, Fox News.

The telling part was that the news talk shows were covering it in such detail through the week, Stewart the comedian was saying the things everyone else was afraid to, and Santelli was so scared of going on the show that he canceled.

All of the major networks are owned by large companies, it's infotainment. The one thing you aren't supposed to do is say anything bad about one of the companies.

Fox was late in covering because it shows a liberal taking down a wall street insider. Who else would be scared to go on the show? Now an invite will be even harder to turn down and a lot more scary.

I guess Fox really is the most fair and balanced, every word the most unbiased gospel truth.

Have you seen Jim Cramer show? If you would have you would have not classified him as a wall street insider, he is also an entertainer.
So now we have Rush as the Rep party leader, and now it is Jim Cramer the Rep......what will he be, Secretary Of Treasury?

You really should look at what you post before hitting the "submit" button.

Cramer and Stewart are entertainers! Civet, why are you and the liberal media making such a big deal about this? To distract from the real issues - yet again.

So Stewart went on a stinkin' rant against Cramer. He should have ranted against the REAL people responsible for this mess. Oh I forgot - Obama is on record as stating that this really is not as bad as we think it is.

Next thing you know, Civet and the MSM are going to start looking to Saturday Night Live for news.

Hello? It's a PARODY show. In my mind, it says a lot about somebody when they're looking to a comedy routine for political analysis.

The truths according to civetcat

The Obama will lead us to the promised land,
He will not take our guns
He will not tax me
Polls are facts
Rush is the leader of the Republican party
Comedy shows are news

Have I missed any?

As a matter of fact, you forgot:

Investment doesn't contribute much to the economy
Investors are rarely needed to get businesses going
The Wall Street Journal isn't a credible publication
The validity of any story is determined not by the content of the article, but by the owner of the publication
Dogma is more important than critical analysis as a test of truth
Semi-auto converted carbines exist

I knew all of you wouldn't like it.

What's being laughed at is the shouting people pretending to be journos, and the drivel they try to serve up. Ultimately I guess the people who agree with Santelli are the but of the joke. And that's you.

Pretty hard to get laughed at.
