Jim Cramer set to appear on "The Daily Show" Thursday night

Somebody at CNBC finally woke up and smelled the coffee.

Or perhaps Jim Cramer realized he had to fight this battle alone.

According to the LA Times web site, Cramer is set to appear on Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show" on Thursday night to discuss (defend?) the talk show host's ongoing and unnecessarily provoked take down of the network since Rick Santelli backed out of appearing on the show.

From a purely public relations point, this should have been done by Santelli in the first place.

I have a theory: CNBC didn't trust Santelli and everybody knows Cramer can think on his feet faster than most TV news personalities.

It's now Cramer's job to lift CNBC's respect back up in the eyes of the public. Whatever you think about him, you've got to admire Cramer for sucking it up and DH'ing for Santelli.

If Cramer takes the same stance on The Daily Show he is going to wind up like Tucker on Crossfire!
