Submission + - Jon Stewart Exposes Apple Stock Manipulation (appleinsider.com) 1

WebManWalking writes: AppleInsider is running a report by Prince McLean about how deliberate misinformation is being used to manipulate Apple stock prices. As usual, traditional journalists, whose job ought to be to inform us, have dropped the ball, and it fell to Jon Stewart of The Daily Show to tear Wall Street yet another new one. I'm getting pretty sick of traditional journalists' reluctance to go for the throat when they see corruption, and ostensibly hide behind the skirts of fairness. Looks more like cowardice to me. I don't own Apple stock, but if I did, I'd be thanking The Daily Show.
