Why is he a douche for wanting satellite radio to survive?
Is he a douche for wanting to expose corrupt politicians? Oh the humanity! :icon_roll

You do realize that this technology will be obsolete in 10 years anyway, right? If either company wants to survive that 10 years they need to reduce costs.

90% of the American people will NEVER pay to listen to radio. Subscription based radio was doomed from the start. When coast to coast wifi is available, all radio will be dead. People will be watching fucking Youtube videos in their cars. For free.

I do not care one way or the other for the merger, but if congressman are taking money into their campaign funds or their own pockets from terrestrial radio and have a say on whether or not this deal goes through then I am all for naming names. More transparency is always better, and if a douche like Cramer has to be the one to expose it then I'm fine with that.

Oh I didn't say Cramer wasn't a douche, just that this doesn't make him one.

Encouraging people to waste their hard earned money speculating on single stocks is enough for me to hate him. Index fund > Speculating douche.

"They" say by the end of the month we will know.
That it was said on that other morning show on that other satellite radio company isn't good to hear however.

http://www.orbitcast.com/archives/sen-arlen-spector-merger-decision-by-end-of-month.html
Senator Arlen Spector (R-PA) today said that while the process on the Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. and XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc. merger has taken a long time, a decision should reached by the end of the month to his knowledge.

Spector, who is the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, made the comment during an interview on The Howard Stern Show.

He also said to sell bear stearns less than a week before it dropped.

Here's a few names.

NAB spends $4MM to block XM/Sirus

Oh wait. XM and Sirius are doing it too!
http://www.orbitcast.com/archives/satellite-radio-hires-their-own-lobbyists.html
Sirus/XM pay $820K

This isn't a big secret. Stupid Cramer just wants everyone to think so.

XM/Sirius or the NAB can pay lobbyists all they want. That is not really a frowned upon practice. When these lobbyists then pay individual campaigns, specifically individual campaigns that have a sway in whether or not the merger goes through, then this should be highlighted. If XM is doing the same thing then call out the names of those that received contributions from XM.

Sure you can still here them, in between the FM size commercial loads that will be featured on their sattelite show after the merger.

kinda off topic, but what exactly is/was Bear Sterns? I was looking it up on Wikipedia, and I got the impression that it was one of those places where they tell you what stocks to buy and shit. Is that what it was/is?

They are an investment bank, they typically do new issues of stock and also were the main driving force in packaging the subprime loans and selling them as securities.

Wifi and the internet are just a fad. Once it blows over, everyone will be signing up for satellite!

Not to be Ned Nitpicker here, but he actually said don't move your account from Bear Sterns. The actual stock was not discussed in that clip. The caller was asking if they should move their investment account to another brokerage based on speculation about Bear's liquidity.

Cramer spoke about the DOJ approving the merger last night and in his tirade said that Howard is worth every penny unlike other personalities that are overpaid, and that Howard will drive even more people to satellite radio. Howie the savior
