Zucker criticizes Stewart

Thursday, March 19 2009

by Kaustav Das Modak


Jeff Zucker, CEO and President of NBC Universal, said at a conference in front of the media on Wednesday that it was absurd for Jon Stewart to suggest that the CNBC or the business media was responsible for present situation. Zucker was quoted as saying, "Everybody wants to find a scapegoat. That's human nature... But to suggest that the business media or CNBC was responsible for what is going on now is absurd."


Zucker feels what Stewart said on The Daily Show was "unfair" and "completely out of line". Stewart had said that CNBC's journalists have a soft attitude towards high ranking government officers and corporates. Stewart mentioned that CNBC didn't question those authorities as strictly as they should. Last week, Stewart had invited Jim Cramer, a CNBC commentator, to the show and had a tough battle of words against him.


On the other hand, Philippe Dauman, CEO of Viacom, backed Jon Stewart and said that Stewart spoke the minds of people.
