Video: Jon Stewart Bangs the CNBC Drum, Again

Can’t get enough of Jon Stewart’s CNBC rant from earlier this week? CBS hopes not: It had Stewart on David Letterman’s show last night, and was lucky enough to get “The Daily Show” host to riff on the topic yet again.

And kudos to CBS (CBS) for getting the bit on Google’s (GOOG) YouTube, where it will get in front of many more eyeballs than the network’s own sites alone. And double kudos for allowing the likes of us to embed the clip, so we can promote the show for them (see, music dudes?).

Truth in advertising: The CNBC stuff only comprises a couple seconds of this clip. But what the heck–the whole thing is barely a couple minutes long. It’s the end of a long week. You can spare the time.
