Mindblowingly good Jon Stewart rant about CNBC

The States' blogo/mediasphere is buzzing with reaction to Jon Stewart's monstering of CNBC last night (on Comedy Central's Daily Show). I have now watched the videos (below in three parts). I have watched CNBC a few times, but I am not familiar with a lot of the stuff they talk about here.

However, as a shining example of passionate journalism and sheer mind-blowingly dramatic TV, this is breathtaking. It particularly takes off in part three. Full marks to Jim Cramer (presenter of CNBC's "Mad Money") for sitting there and taking it like a man (although his voice rises, at one point, to almost a pitch which can only be detected by dogs).
