NBC Defends Cramer

Someone has CNBC host Jim Cramer’s back: His boss. NBC Chief Jeff Zucker recently complained to a keynote audience that Jon Stewart’s lambasting of Cramer was “totally unfair” and “completely out of line,” adding that, :Just because someone who mocks authority says something doesn’t mean it's true." He defended CNBC against Stewart’s broader attacks, asserting that for the Daily Show host “to suggest that the business media is responsible for what’s going on now is absurd.”
