I haven't written about CNBC's Rick Santelli's faux-populist anti-Obama rant, or mad man Jim Cramer's slurring Obama as a "Bolshevik." They're both repellent. Robert Reich says it all here.

But in eight minutes, Jon Stewart destroys them both, along with CNBC, for the way they all flacked the financial and real estate bubbles right up until the brink of disaster. The most trusted name in financial news? Not.
