Cramer-Jon Stewart: Altucher's Take

 

It's 4 in the morning, and in a fit of insomnia, I decided to watch the Jim Cramer-Jon Stewart interview on The Daily Show. I hadn't seen any of the buildup to this interview, so first I watched all the clips leading up to this moment. The intro to "Brawl Street" was particularly funny. But the interview itself was not.

Jim and I went back and forth on IM at that time (he starts his work day at 3 a.m.). I wanted to know why he didn't dive into three really important items with Stewart.

Cramer vs. Stewart; Defending Jim

I hate trying to convince Jim of anything. Sometimes he's stubborn on issues like this. Finally, I wrote some unspeakable things that can't be reprinted here and he responded, "Don't kid yourself. I have spent my whole life blowing open how it really works ... and I will continue to do so."

Well, I did this video anyway.
