CNBC's Jim Cramer got defensive when NBC's Meredith Vieira asked him about continued criticism by Comedy Central's Jon Stewart, who on Monday night also dropped a censored 'f-bomb' on the Mad Money host.

"I just saw John Stewart rip Cramer for claiming that he didn't say Bear Stearns stock was a good buy days before it went bust," a blogger at The Daily Banter wrote after Monday's Daily Show aired. "After showing several clips in which Cramer does just that, the brilliant Mr. Stewart simply said 'FUCK YOU!.'"

Cramer admitted he isn't always right with his predictions.

"Did I make a mistake? Okay, first of all, any time you recommend a stock and it goes down, you've made a mistake," confessed Cramer.

The CNBC host tried to defend himself. "I did come on [The Today Show] and tell everyone to sell, and when Stewart makes that call, I'm all over him, but he won't do that, because he's a comedian," he said.

Gawker mocks, "Poor exasperated Cramer doesn't seem to understand why everybody's hassling him when all he's doing is his job, which is to predict the future! 'Jim has to go out every day and make these calls,' said his CNBC colleague Erin Burnett, leaping to his defense. He has to! You can't expect him to be correct all the time."

Last Wednesday, Stewart took aim at Cramer and his colleagues at CNBC, including newly minted populist and former derivatives trader Rick Santelli, by joking, I have to say I find cheap populism oddly arousing.
