Cramer took illegal actions?

In a webcast on that has been widely viewed on YouTube, Mr. Cramer spoke about bringing down the prices of a high-flying stock and admitted that his actions might have been illegal.
"might have been"... Read "were."

Re: Cramer took illegal actions?

I could not get to the link, but I am REALLY very surprised Cramer has gotten away with so much "sarcasm". His "act"has really gotten out hand the last six months or so. I used to listen to him just for ideas, then he just became entertainment, now he's outta control

Re: Cramer took illegal actions?

Somewhere in the last 6 months I read an article about Cramer and his "show". It is the brainchild (!) of his producer. She gives him signals during the show to juice it up, that on his own he starts to quiet down. And the whole "catch" to the show is all of his antics. Notta forme a :P

I saw the clip, or part of it on TV where Cramer is talking to a guy, they are sitting at a table for two, and Cramer is touching on unethical methods he did in the past when he was a trader. This is the clip in question.

What is the background on this video? Was it done with a spy camera, or was Cramer aware he was being filmed?
