A White House correspondent asked White House press secretary Robert Gibbs if President Obama had watched Jon Stewart’s interview with Jim Cramer.

REPORTER: I don’t know if you or the president saw the Jon Stewart piece last night, but in journalism, does the White House believe it’s the obligation of journalists to point out the lies and warn of dangers ahead.

GIBBS: We talked about watching it. I forgot to e-mail to remind him it was on. I don’t know if he saw it. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Despite, even as Mr. Stewart said, it may have been uncomfortable to conduct and uncomfortable to watch. I thought it was — I thought somebody asked a lot of tough questions. I am not surprised that the video of Mr. Kramer’s appearance doesn’t appear on CNBC’s website today.

This video is from CNN.com, broadcast Mar. 13, 2009.
