The Daily Show's Jon Stewart took a whack at the "monsters of money" at this year's World Economic Forum and at the financial networks for worshiping CEOs like rock stars. Stewart pointed out that nothing sums up the annual conference held in Davos, Switzerland better than the fact that there were 1700 private jets flown to a summit where one of the topics was climate change.

He went onto take a whack at the financial networks like CNBC, and their over the top hero worship of these "monsters of money" who all still seem to be a lot more worried about their own tender sensibilities and how terrible it is that their companies might be subject to some regulation than whether they might wreck the entire world's economy again.
