Introducing “The Money Oscars” – Jon Stewart On The Davos Circus And Financial “Journalists”

Mike Krieger brings to our attention this clip from the Daily Show, in which Jon Stewart takes on the orgy of crony capitalists, vacuous celebrities and corrupt politicians that is the World Economic Forum in Davos, or as he calls it, “The Money Oscars.” Whatever opinion one may have of Stewart, he does have a knack of cutting to the chase especially when juxtaposed with such hard-hitting “journalism” as the following:


Off to Davos for the week…stay tuned for updates… #wef14 #Davos2014 @CNBC @dealbook

Then again, one can’t help but wonder what Stewart would say if he were invited (and compensated) to head a panel at next year’s Davos on the topic of comedy in finance, and just how quickly he would reject said invitation. Perhaps we will find out in 2015.
