James Fallows e Andrew Sullivan, che poi sono due delle colonne di The Atlantic, commentano la spietata demolizione (mereiless demolition) di Cramer da parte di Jon Stewart e la considerano una grande lezione di giornalismo.
Just before leaving China — ie, two days ago — I saw with my wife the pirate-video version of Frost/Nixon, showing how difficult it is in real time to ask the kind of questions Stewart did. I know, Frost was dealing with a former president. Still, it couldn’t have been easy to do what Stewart just did. Seeing this interview justified the three-day trip in itself.
Nel frattempo David Swensen, chief investment officer di Yale University, di cui Cramer è Alumno, dice la sua sui suggerimenti finanziari di Cramer.
Educated at Harvard College and Harvard Law School, Cramer squanders his extraordinary credentials and shamelessly promotes stunningly inappropriate investment advice to an all-too-gullible audience. Jim Cramer exemplifies everything that’s wrong with the advice that is given to individual investors. Investing is a serious business. We’re talking about retirement security of American citizens, and he turns it into a game. It’s a game where his listeners lose. It’s ridiculous. These high-turnover, rapid trading strategies enrich the brokers. If you look at Jim Cramer’s approach on an after-fee, after-tax basis, the individual doesn’t have a chance.
