Stewart takes on CNBC

In my Reflections post below I ask why we are enthralled with so-called experts. The talk of the journalistic world today is Jon Stewart's eight-minute mocking tyrade against CNBC on the Daily Show Wednesday night. In typically devastating fashion, Stewart unmasks the network as little more than a chearleading squad for Wall Street.

Phil Bunch of the Philadephia Daily News uses Stewart's piece as an example of what journalism could be but rarely is and why main stream news media is fading so fast.
