CNBC's Cramer skips morning show
Jim Cramer of CNBC skipped the morning show this morning. The night before, the host of Mad Money decisively lost his much-hyped showdown with Daily Show host Jon Stewart.
Last night's appearance was the culmination of a feud between Cramer and Stewart. In recent weeks, Stewart has been sharply critical of CNBC's financial journalism in the run-up to the economic meltown. CNBC :
It's ironic that this whole thing started after CNBC's Rick Santelli agreed to go on The Daily Show show to discuss a televised trading floor tantrum in which he called struggling mortgage holders "losers." Santelli bailed on Stewart, sparking even more criticism of Santelli, and CNBC including Jim Cramer.
