Genuine Stock Picks, Fake News . . . or Vice Versa

In The New York Times, Joe Nocera recalls when Jon Stewart, late of The Daily Show, took on Wall Street. Most famously, "the Cramer takedown."

Officially, Jim Cramer was an authentic stock analyst and Jon Stewart hosted a fake news program.  In reality, many a millennial looked to The Daily Show, not the networks, for news, and Cramer himself acknowledged his CNBC role as an entertainer.

Confusing? Not really. As George Burns might have said, "Authenticity - if you can fake that, you've got it made."
