Hot ladies, bald dudes

C'mon, that's what the cable business channels really boil down to, right? Or, putting it another way: Young babes interviewing old farts. Jon Stewart has the video to prove it. Later in his shtick, he takes aim at Fox's Neil Cavuto, whose name - CAVUTO - actually appears bigger in his Fox background graphic than the entire map of the United States. By the way, Cavuto's takeaway from this week's market madness is that America remains the global powerhouse - and that the U.S. economy, no matter how crappy it turns out to be, still matters the most. "And it's killing them," he adds, referring to dem dang ferners. (Hat tip to Peter Kafka at Silicon Alley Insider)
