Jon Stewart blasted the Congress and their unwillingness to really do anything about the insider trading which was featured in that badly flawed 60 Minutes piece on the subject and the watered down language in the STOCK Act they just passed.

It's a shame Stewart referenced the 60 Minutes piece since it was riddled with inaccuracies as we noted here, but that didn't make me any less happy to see him go after the Congress with their hypocrisy and unwillingness to do anything meaningful to prevent them from engaging in activities that would have the rest of us serving some jail time.
