Loser Financial Advice

CNBC turns hypocrisy into a fine art, and Jon Stewart is on a roll:

Wasn’t it only a few weeks ago that comedians were worried that with Bush gone, they would not have enough material?

All their slogans are like, ‘We know what’s going on on Wall Street.’ But then you turn it on during the crisis, and they’re like, ‘We don’t know what’s going on!’ It’d be like turning on The Weather Channel in a hurricane, and they’re just doing this: ‘Why am I wet? What’s happening to me? And it’s so windy! What’s going on, I’m scared!’ How do you not know?
