Time For One More Cramer/Stewart Analysis?

On Friday, my colleague Ryan wrote up what was wrong with the insta-coverage of Cramer v. Stewart (Last Thursday Night’s Edition), including what Ryan called the “superficial” take by New York Times TV critic Alessandra Stanley. For a thoughtful take by another TV critic, have a look at this blog post by Time’s James Poniewozik, who found the Stewart-on-Cramer interview “most fascinating as a discussion about how business journalism in particular and journalism in general are done in America,” and highlights “a few of Cramer’s responses” which he found “especially eye-opening, not just as they relate to business news but to problems that journalism has generally.” Worth a read.
