Is Jon Stewart Gonna Have to Choke a Bitch?

It started with this brilliant clip from the Daily Show last week where Jon Stewart rips CNBC to shreds for being so wrong leading up to the financial crisis.
CNBC's Rick Santelli had declared his disgust over Obama giving money to bail out people who couldn't pay their mortgages. The ridiculous hypocrisy in Santelli's stance (bailing out individuals that have made bad decisions is abhorrent, yet multi-billion dollar bailouts for corporations that consistently were mismanaged and swindling is fine) annoyed Stewart and he was invited on the Daily Show to talk about it. This clip is from the show he was to appear on.

This launched a bit of a feud between Stewart and CNBCs most famous face Jim "Mad Money" Cramer

Trying to save the reputation of the network Cramer came on the daily show last night, the discussion took up the whole show was one the greatest ass kickings I've ever seen. The full interviews went on for much longer than expected, so linked below is not the full episode, but rather the complete unedited interview.

Part 2
Part 3

Even more impressive than this classic clip where Stewart tears up Tucker Carlson and the CNN punditry in 2004
