Inspired by Jon Stewart, activists hound CNBC


Jon Stewart's battle with CNBC began the night Rick Santelli, who had just called for "another tea party" to protest President Obama's proposed homeowner assistance program, backed out of an appearance on the Daily Show. Can Stewart inspire his own uprising?

Hoping to build a movement out of Stewart's bitingly funny and often caustic campaign, a group of political activists have launched, where visitors can sign an open letter calling on the network to "publicly declare that its new overriding mission will be responsible journalism that holds Wall Street accountable."
