CNBC Jon Stewart Response: "Bizarrely Obsessed" With Santelli

Over at Dealbreaker, Bess Levin's got an on-the-record response from CNBC on the way Jon Stewart's been doing them like garbage bags -- that is, taking them out on a daily basis -- and she's filed it under "worst comeback of all time." I got Bess' back on that one. Basically, CNBC says that Santelli opted out of going on the "Daily Show" because he felt Stewart was "bizarrely obsessed" with him. You know, in the way that he kept trying to "book" him by "calling" him "repeatedly." Yeah, okay. There's also some stuff about how Santelli's "Grecian good looks" came into play here.

Anyway, aside from that response being an exceedingly lame one, let's note the timing. CNBC could have responded quickly to the "Daily Show" by issuing a response yesterday. But this way, they don't have to face the immediate wrath of Stewart and his writers. Pure guts, this CNBC, eh?

CNBC: "It's not my fault you're like, in love with me, or something!" [Dealbreaker]

Stewart/Santelli OMFG... ewww

"Excuse me... *long pause while Stewart collects himself* but I find cheap populism strangely arousing."

This is one of my irrational moments when I forget these guys are people with lives but:

WHY ISN'T THE DAILY SHOW ON EVERY NIGHT OF THE WEEK!?

I DON'T KNOW, BUT IF WE TRY HARD ENOUGH MAYBE WE CAN GET HIM ON SNL TONIGHT.


CALL NBC. TELLLLL THEM YOU WANT HIM ON WEEKEND UPDATE.

BECAUSE HE CAN'T HAVE ANYTHING BETTER TO DO TONIGHT, LIKE BE WITH HIS FAMILY.

AND IF HE IS ON SNL TONIGHT, MONDAY HE CAN RECAP WHAT HAPPENED ON SNL AND CONTINUE ON ABOUT IT MUCH MORE EASILY.

ALSO: I CAN PROPERLY SLASH SETH/JON IF THIS HAPPENS.
dagnirovanaliel 7th-Mar-2009 04:43 pm (UTC)
I KEEP HAVING THIS IMAGE OF HIM ON MONDAY "SO I WAS CALLED TO APPEAR ON SNL TWO HOURS BEFORE FILMING. APPARENTLY A BUNCH OF PEOPLE CALLED NBC. TO WHICH I SAY: WHY?"

OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. :D
