I won’t go into any type colorful description of the “showdown” between Jon Stewart and CNBC’s Kim Cramer. If you’re reading this you already know about it.
What I want to talk about is the fact that this “highly anticipated showdown” was staged. In fact, it was the media that made it “highly anticipated.” It was the Hollywood theatrics used by the producers of both shows that made it a “showdown.” And chances are you feel for it.
It was obvious Cramer was showing his poor acting skills, while allowing Stewart to play the American hero. This was merely a publicity stunt that is likely to boost the ratings of both Cramer and Stewart’s respective shows.
And if you think Stewart is in some way “on your side,” you’ve been fooled once again. He’s in it all for ratings. If he really cared, he’d bring in credible experts to really expose the fraud behind CNBC.
Don’t you find it a bit odd how every media source, from newspaper and radio to TV was talking about the “showdown” the next day, as if it was the heavyweight fight of the century? It was featured on virtually every cover story of every media outlet.
Don’t you see what has happened?
Financial issues have replaced Paris Hilton and the media is all over the drama. But the same media tricks are being used…staging, flooding, etc. In the meantime, the real issues are being sidelined. It’s time for America’s sheep to wake up and smell the coffee.
