WARNING: NOT SAFE FOR WORK!
Hmm... I'll let this speak for itself. I can't think of anything to add to this except that there's absolutely no way that we don't hold much of the media accountable for this crap, as much as they want to hold the average middle-class citizen accountable for not only their houses being foreclosed on and their jobs disappearing into thin air, but also for financing the clearly undeserved bonuses of corporate executives who eagerly await their share of TARP funds.
But Stewart also makes an excellent point; it's not fair to blame one person in particular, as it may seem he's doing. If anything, we should all take the self-proclaimed experts to task for not reporting what they obviously knew. I had a felling too, but who's gonna believe me? But you'll believe a TV personality with experience in the markets, and he was among many who either dropped the ball, or hid it in the cellar. The same can go clearly to another area of the media that is clearly spurring a witch hunt against certain individuals to mask their own irrepsonisbilities (cough-cough-steroids-cough)... Breathe in, breathe out. Enjoy >;)
