NBC chief defends Jim Cramer's honour

Stewart was "completely out of line"

Jeff Zucker, CEO of the NBC/Universal empire, says that Jon Stewart’s dissing of CNBC and Jim Cramer was “completely out of line” and “incredibly unfair to CNBC and the business media in general.” He added that there have been at least two times in the last six months when Jim Cramer was right about something. Of course, this is the same interview where Zucker predicted that NBC’s terrible ratings may help it adjust to the new realities of TV broadcasting, so he’s always looking on the bright side.
