In this Cramer video (below) he talks about how he used to manipulate the stock market when he was a Hedge Fund Manager.
Cramer apparently didn't realize his comments in this video were going to be broadcast on the internet or tv, because he even says "I would never say this on tv."
Notice how Cramer talks about telephoning writers at the Wall Street Journal (who he affectionately calls "Bozos"), so he could spread mis-information about a particular stock. Mis-information that gets printed in the paper, the next day.
