Another Daily Show, another CNBC takedown. Jon Stewart started the show last night discussing the reaction to his CNBC rant — which he said was slated to run even if Rick Santelli hadn’t canceled. Then Stewart responded to Jim Cramer’s Cramer’s column yesterday, which said Stewart had misrepresented the CNBC host’s point when it came to the much-replayed Bear Stearns clip. “I apologize, that was out of context, technically,” said Stewart. But then he played a clip of Cramer five days earlier during a “buy or sell” segment, praising Bear. And it was on:
