Is Jon Stewart America's most trusted financial voice?

On Tuesday, Jim Cramer appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe and NBC's Today Show to respond to Jon Stewart's latest attacks. This follows an increasingly heated exchange between the two, which Stewart has titled "Cramer vs. Not Cramer: Basic Cable Personality Clash Skirmish '09." Cramer's response to Stewart has largely relied on belittling comments, notably that Stewart is merely "a comedian," and his program is "a variety show."

Responding to the Today segment, Stewart stated that "The Today Show forced me to watch him watching me. It put a human face on my mocking. It gave me a sense of the damage that I had done to a real person. Do I need to see that? It would be like him having to watch me as his Bear Stearns advice wiped out my parents' 401(K)."
