I’m seriously late in joining the bandwagon coverage of Jon Stewart’s take down of Rick Santelli and CNBC last night, but I couldn’t resist. Santelli, “bailed out” on appearing live on the show at the last minute (never a good idea), but that didn’t stop Stewart from launching an 8 minute-plus rant at the ineptitude of CNBC’s coverage of the financial meltdown. The Columbia Journalism Review is calling it a much needed mirror holding on the business media, and their role in letting down consumers across the country. Barry Ritholtz, wonders aloud what CNBC’s PR meetings were like today. I wonder the same.
