Jon Stewart & The Daily Show Video: Rick Santelli & CNBC Financial Advice
What's amazing about this video is that Jon Stewart in 8 minutes shows you what a fraud Santelli and many of his CNBC cohorts are and yet the mainstream media treats these people with kid gloves. Almost as if they are such vast reservoirs of knowledge and so right on the money with predictions of the future that anything they say cannot be in doubt. Jon Stewart and his writers are better at showing you what is really going on in this country than the "real" journalists, who practice "real" journalism, are doing.
Why would that be?
Is it because all these "serious" and somber "real" journalists you see on TV everyday, are in fact, millionaires and are part of the establishment and elite of the country? And they have no more in common with the vast majority of the country than any of the other wealthy elite does?
I would think the answer is rather obvious.
When you are watching these people on TV, it is good to remember, that when it comes to rolling back the Bush tax cuts they are directly being hit right in their pocket books. Every single one of them. They are the top 1 or 2 percent of income earners in this country and until recently were making out quite well.
