CNBC's Jim Cramer got defensive when NBC's Meredith Vieira asked him about criticism by late-nite comic Jon Stewart. "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.
