Fox Business Network has been attacking CNBC’s Mad Money host Jim Cramer for a while now. New ads take aim at his "irresponsible, sloppy commentary and wildly inaccurate predictions." CNBC has struck back, possibly while taking brandy and cigars in the lounge, calling the ads "a predictably desperate attempt by a completely irrelevant network with ratings so pathetically small they refuse to make them public." Nice comeback! Not that any of this sententious drabble actually matters. The economy is bobbing in and out of the tank on an hourly basis no matter whose idle speculation gets better ratings. But we’re glad the pundits are keeping themselves occupied. We’ve seen what happens when they get angry and turn on us.
