MSNBC Producers Asked Not To Highlight Cramer/Stewart

A TVNewser tipster tells us MSNBC producers were asked not to incorporate the Jim Cramer/Jon Stewart interview into their shows today. In fact, the only time it came up on MSNBC was during the White House briefing, when a member of the press corps asked Press Secretary Robert Gibbs if Pres. Obama watched. Gibbs wasn’t sure if the president had, but Gibbs did. “I enjoyed it thoroughly,” the Press Secretary said.

But I’m also a huge Jim Cramer fan. He sticks up for the little guy, he cares, he puts his neck out, and I respect that. I respect both those guys.”

Cramer appeared on his regular “Stop Trading” segment during “Street Signs.” But the Daily Show did not come up. With anchor Erin Burnett in Washington, the discussion was about banking policy and the Federal Reserve, ending with Cramer saying, “Ben Bernanke‘s got the magic.” (A far cry from Cramer’s “Wake-Up” call to Bernanke in August ’07.)

Insiders tell TVNewser Cramer will talk about Stewart tonight on “Mad Money” (6pmET & 11pmET).
