Read it here first: 'Mad Money' Madness in NYT

Monday, February 06, 2006 | 09:23 AM

Continuing on our going series of scooping the MSM, today we look at a mostly positive article in Monday's NYT on Jim Cramer's Mad Money , called Ego Unleashed, or Everyman of the Market?.

It is a follow up to our Friday pieces, The Thin Green Line and Monitoring the 'Mad Money' Madness. That column was actually well recieved by journalism blogs; Most media are not that introspective, and do not take very critical looks at themselves.

The NYT piece is also worth a read. The article concludes that while the markets may have been going sideways for a while, Cramer's stock has risen.

And as several readers have pointed out, since Mad Money started last year, the's stock has had a nice rally:

"Mr. Cramer can be and has been spectacularly wrong."

I think that might be a slight understatement. You would have lost 99% of your investment if you had actually invested in his "stocks for the new world".
