There's nothing like being an online pundit, yours truly included, because your views are on record and, if you call the future and get it wrong, boy, are you dead meat.
Jim Cramer knows this when he cried "do not take your money out of Bear Stearns" last March, just days before the broker was dead meat.
Ever since, Cramer's been the target of humour and derision and Jon Stewart on Comedy Central laid into Cramer last week as blogged a few days ago.
The argument has rumbled on and this CNN report is a must watch, for no other reason than the second half of the clip where Jim Cramer appears on the US Breakfast Today Show and watches Jon Stewart lay into him again live and on air.
Also note that Jim Cramer, whose smile disappeared fairly rapidly there, rallied back with the cry that no-one noted his call to sell all your stocks.
Here's that clip:
This was on October 6th 2008, just after Lehmans collapse, and days after WaMu, Wachovia, Merrill Lynch and company had disappeared.
Back on October 6th, the Dow Jones closed at 9,955.50. Cramer said he thought there may be a 20% drop in the Dow. Yesterday the Dow closed at 6,926.49, an almost 30% drop.
