SAN FRANCISCO -- The Street's Jim Cramer was asked Monday about Twitter. He called the money-losing social media high flier a “love stock.” If that's the case, the honeymoon may soon be over. Twitter shares fell sharply Monday after a Morgan Stanley analyst cut his investment rating to the equivalent of sell and warned that advertisers are more likely to spend their dollars on Twitter's competitors. Shares closed down 4% to $66.29. But they have nearly tripled since Twitter went public at $26 on Nov. 7. Twitter's stock market value is a heady $37 billion.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The reality of Facebook's $2-billion-plus acquisition of Oculus VR set in on Wall Street on Wednesday, dragging down Facebook shares and the Nasdaq. Facebook fell nearly 7% to $60.38 one day after it announced its second blockbuster acquisition this year. Last month the giant social network made jaws drop when it said it would pay $19 billion for mobile messaging service WhatsApp. The tech-heavy Nasdaq fell 1.4% Wednesday to 4,173.58, its lowest close in more than a month.

You would have thought news was slow on Wall Street last week, when the hottest item on the ticker was that television personality Maria Bartiromo was jumping from CNBC, her onscreen home for two decades, to the Fox Business Channel. Financial and media pundits struggled to place the event in cosmic context. Michael Wolff of the  Guardian called it a " tectonic shift ," which was a bit of an overstatement even for him, though it's possible he was being facetious. (It's sometimes hard to tell.)

Anyone who's watched "The Daily Show" long enough will have seen plenty of Fox News clips of the perpetually disapproving scowl of Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer. So his appearance as a guest on Wednesday's show had all the promise of one of Stewart's classic faceoffs. Remember Jim Cramer? However, the debate between Stewart and Krauthammer, though spirited, was reasonable and respectful above all things. And because of that, both were allowed to make good points for their cause, absent the sound and fury of the modern media circus.

The "weeklong feud of the century" reached its climax Thursday night as Jon Stewart welcomed freshly minted nemesis Jim Cramer to "The Daily Show." Cramer, who hosts the CNBC show "Mad Money," had figured heavily in a "Daily Show" piece highlighting that network's poor track record on the financial apocalypse, an attack originally inspired by reporter Rick Santelli's diatribe against over-leveraged homeowners.

STUMBLE across Jim Cramer's show on CNBC and you may think you've come upon a music video featuring a balding, manic businessman. Lights pulsate as cameras sweep the set, lightning crackling on a flat-panel screen while booms of thunder punctuate a loud electronic guitar riff. Then a middle-aged man in rolled-up shirt sleeves flings his chair across the room, gesticulating wildly as he shouts: "Are you reaaddyyy SKIDADDYYY?!?" This is not your father's finance show.

CNBC HOST Jim Cramer is back in the news. For most TV personalities, that would be a good thing. But since it's Cramer we're talking about, PR can get a little dicey. Especially at such a critical time for his employer. As you may have heard, the legendarily excitable Cramer has been telling viewers, on NBC's “Today" and elsewhere, to bail out of stocks and grab any cash they'll need over the next five years.

The verdict from critics Friday was quick and unsparing: Comedian Jon Stewart trounced CNBC pundit Jim Cramer in their televised encounter Thursday night. Forgoing his typically caustic humor, a serious and at times angry Stewart eviscerated Cramer for jocularly discussing how to manipulate the stock market and slammed CNBC as an ineffective watchdog of Wall Street.

Jon Stewart didn't take kindly to CNBC pundit Jim Cramer dismissing his Comedy Central program as a mere "variety show." "You make me sound like I'm some kind of buffoon, just flapping my arms with crazy buttons and wacky sound effects," the host of "The Daily Show" said Tuesday night. He then cut to a clip of Cramer on his CNBC show "Mad Money," punching buttons that make wacky sound effects. Ouch.
