Passions are running high in the finance world following a stunning
civil suit filed
by the SEC against Goldman Sachs. A
little bit of that emotion spilled over onto CNBC's Street Signs with
Erin Burnett. Her guest Sylvain Raynes takes a broad swipe at Jim Cramer
referring to him as a "public relations officer" for Goldman Sachs.
Kramer explodes on Raynes but Raynes keeps going. He smugly corrects
Cramer's pronunciation of "Abacus" (the technical name for one of
Goldman's allegedly nefarious deals) and says he won't get into details
because he wants to "remain shallow in deference to Mr. Cramer."
Raynes's badmouthing gets a little too rough for Burnett who scolds him
saying "you've got to be more polite than that."
