The Daily Show: Stickin’ It to CNBC

Jeff VanderMeer • March 5th, 2009 @ 11:51 am • Culture, Videos

If you missed last night’s Daily Show, you owe it to yourself to check out this instant classic online. Rick Santelli, a CNBC analyst who’d gone off on a rant against homeowners, was supposed to be the guest. Then he backed out. So instead Jon Stewart devoted the whole show to a take-down of CNBC. It’s brutal, vicious, deserved, and an example of the only TV-based investigative journalism worth watching besides Frontline. I’m sure Santelli wishes he’d gone on the show instead. (Starts after 30 seconds of commercials and one minute of schtick.)

Stewart: “Hmmm. If only I’d listened to CNBC, I would have a million dollars now…if I’d started out with a hundred million dollars.”
