Hell why not bring on Buffett and Soros and lampoon them for all the bad calls they've made over their careers? Then fanboys could get off to Jon Stewart exposing them too. Of course Cramer is an idiot but digging up bad calls he's made doesn't prove anything. Do you really believe people watch CNBC because they think a television station can "anticipate what the markets will do"? Go to any major trading floor and almost everyone will have CNBC on. Do you think ANY of them are watching it to get stock tips or "weather forecasts"? Of course not, its an outlet for business news. People use CNBC for different things. Some people use it solely for news and others use the news gained from CNBC as a guide to what the markets will do.
