Cramer Just Won't Give Up

Jim Cramer spoke out against his Jon Stewart interview on the Today show.

I think it was a naive and misleading thing to attack the media. We weren’t behind this. CNBC, in particular, has been out front on this. … I think there are people who bear so much more responsibility [than the media] that it’s just wrong-headed: the politicians, the regulators, the SEC, the lenders, the investment banks. … It’s just a naive focus, it really is Meredith.

My question to Cramer is: why didn't you say any of this when you were on Stewart's show? By the way, during that interview, Jon Stewart did say that there were a few good journalists at CNBC and included David Faber, or don't you remember because of the drubbing you were in the midst of?

Cramer's comment of taking the "high road" when he said he would try to do better sticks in my craw when the following day on his show, he did this. So much for the high road OR actually trying to do better. Sorry, Jim. This defense was weak.

I don't believe him, never believed him, still don't believe him. I don't think he really supported Pres. Obama.. if he did he sure has a funny way of showing it.
