Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman backed up Jon Stewart and his criticism of CNBC
star Jim Cramer, the Hollywood Reporter says. Stewart, whose “Daily Show”
airs on Viacom’s Comedy Central, voice what many people were thinking,
Dauman said at a keynote appearance at the 2009 Media Summit New York. “He
has a connection with the zeitgeist, which makes him so successful. He did a
great job as usual, and we are happy to have him in family,” Dauman said,
the trade paper reports.
