Yes, Jon Stewart of Daily Show fame got in a nice jab at Jim Cramer last night. The crew was also able to tie in the Conan O’Brien debacle with Senator-elect Scott Brown.

    Lunch: Bill Bradley, Norman Pearlstine & The Media Mavens

    homepage_graphic04_large.jpg

    — DIANE CLEHANE

    It’s a lo-cal edition of lunch today. We’re chalking it up to near Spring-like weather (I don’t know about you, but I’m burning my winter coat when we finally have two days over 60) and plenty of recent rumblings about companies tightening the reins on expense accounts. What’s a media maven to do? You’ve still gotta eat. And if there’s business to be done — or you’re looking for your next big thing — Michael’s is still the place to be to connect with the power brokers that aren’t chained to their desks. Today, besides the regulars, the crowd was sprinkled with a liberal (no pun intended) dose of media mavens and business types with a former senator (Bill Bradley) thrown in for good measure. The mood in the dining room was a bit low-key, but I’m guessing there was still plenty of deals being struck over those burgers.

    I was lunching today with my pal Brian Balthazar, HGTV’s director of programming. Brian and I met at Michael’s when he was working as supervising producer of Today‘s fourth hour with those chatty gals Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. Now that Brian is getting up at a far more civilized hour, he’s got time for things besides television, including doing stand-up (His next gig is on April 15 at Comix). His new-ish job at HGTV is keeping him plenty busy, though, overseeing 18 shows with some great new projects in the works, including programming that will offer viewers an up close and personal look at celebrity homes. Brian also tells me he’s retooling the network’s popular House Hunters series to inject a bit “more reality” into the show and reflect more of what buyers are going through during these recessionary times. Still, though, there’s plenty of escapism (Thank God!) on offer. “During tough times, people really like to see beautiful homes and be inspired. There’s a voyeuristic quality to real estate that people love.”

    Here’s the rundown on today’s crowd:

    1. Laurie Tisch and a table full of pals

    2. Peter Brown

    3. Kerry Kennedy and James Wolfensohn, former head of The World Bank. Second seating: producers Jon Hart and Fred Zollo

    4. Steve Rubenstein and Norman Pearlstine

    The Main Event! Cramer Comes to The Daily Show

    So last night, in the most hotly anticipated interview of the week(!) Jim Cramer came out with his tail between his legs and Jon Stewart, who took a mostly serious tone, was actually far tougher than (we, for one) anticipated. And despite Cramer’s acquiescing, sometimes apologetic, sometimes squirming tone — he was clearly nervous and not looking for a fight — Stewart was fairly relentless with his criticism and clips.

    Says Stewart: “It feels like we are capitalizing your adventure, by our pension and our hard-earned…and it is a game that you know, that you know is going on, but that you go on television as a financial network and pretend isn’t happening.” Part two and three after the jump.

    Cramer Vs Not-Cramer

    The Stewart-CNBC/Cramer feud/distraction continues (hey, it beats Octo-mom). Jim Cramer — who is apparently slightly more media-savvy than everyone else at CNBC — will be on The Daily Show tonight. Probably best not to hold your breath for fireworks, however, Stewart has never been quite as sharp or accusatory when faced with the subject of his ridicule as he is in their absence. In the meantime, enjoy the distraction while it lasts!

    Yay! War of words! Sometimes there are winners in those!

    Jim Cramer tried to put down Jon Stewart as a ‘comedian with a variety show’. Watch how that worked out.

    “This is what I didn’t know, if I took on CNBC, Jim Cramer would take it personally and get the whole NBC family involved.” Said Stewart.

    Another CNBC Scandal? Jim Cramer Brags About Stock Manipulation

    Did Jim Cramer really go mad?

    It’s no intercontinental jet ride, but it could be even more damning to Jim Cramer. CNBC’s Mad Money man bragged during an interview with The Street.com [above] about manipulating stock prices during his days as a trader.

    It’s even crazier when you read the transcript:

    “A lot of times when I was short, I would create a level of activity beforehand that would drive the futures. … It’s a fun game,” Cramer said in the Webcast, which was moderated by TheStreet.com Executive Editor Aaron Task. Cramer later said that “no one else in the world would ever admit that, but I don’t care.” He added that the strategy — while illegal — was safe enough because, “the Securities and Exchange Commission never understands this.”
