Jim Cramer Comes Out of Hiding, Responds to Getting Trounced By Jon Stewart

This morning, CNBC host Jim Cramer went on NBC’s Today Show and made some of his first public comments about his brutal face-off with the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart. (The morning after the evisceration, Cramer unexpectedly skipped a planned appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.) Today, Cramer dismissed Stewart’s attacks, calling them “naive” and saying that CNBC had been "out front" in identifying financial malfeasance:


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.
