Talk About Incesteous Amplication and Groupthink...

Jon Stewart, in one eight-and-a-half segment, eviscated the reporting of CNBC's news department, leaving its reporters flailing in the wind like dingy laundry drying on a clothesline in the dirty breeze.

And if you think Rush Limbaugh and his "dittoheads" are virtual dildoes utterly lacking in wisdom and humanity, wait until you meet the sychopanic choir at CNBC, whose penchant for giving CEOs a hickey in the derriere and its incessant attacks on the Obama recovery plan is nauseating indeed.

Not only do you have the "scream queen" Rick Santelli vying with Jim Cramer for nutcase status (and a possible stint in the loony bin) You got a recovering cocaine addict (Larry Kudlow) a CEO worshipper (Maria Bartiromo) and its sycophants (Joe Kernan and Mark Haines, Melissa Francis and Dennis Kneale, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera) shutting down any dissent that does not toe the line with its agenda.

Instead of reporting the news objectively allowing for contrarian points of view, they've taken a page from the Fox News book and turned their newscasts into shoutfests where every honest discussion of the economic crisis immediately devolves into a partisan political harangue.

Two Aleve, please.
