Jon Stewart and Jim Cramer: Where's the Independence???

I guess I can't resist.... Jon Stewart's interview of Jim Cramer --the full episode...

I thought Cramer was incredibly non-defensive, meaning he accepted Jon Stewart's challenges gracefully and thoughtfully. Believe me, nobody in 21st century America thinks the media -- whether it's CNBC or the Comedy Channel -- is speaking for the people! Ha Ha! Only the people speak for the people. We get to do that on Election Day, and then everything goes back to clever reparte on cable tv.... 

I watch Jon Stewart as often as I can and really enjoy the show. But is Jon Stewart a watchdog of democracy? Hardly. If he was, he'd have some independents on, and I haven't really seen that yet. I view Stewart, as attractive as he is, as partisan as the 2 parties when it comes to political views--namely duopolistic. Of course there's always another tomorrow night at 11pm.... Jon, get with it!! There's more going on than 2 sides to every issue!!! Where's your independence, man?

Great points in your take on the interview. I saw an interesting take about it also on www.obamalian.com. It is almost like Stewart was doing t his as a favor to the White House. Hello?
