Continuing on our going series of scooping the MSM [1], 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 [2] and Monitoring
the ‘Mad Money’ Madness
. That column was actually well recieved by journalism blogs [3]; 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 Street.com’s stock has had a nice rally:
