Getting crushed by Jon Stewart last week wasn't the end of the bad news for Jim Cramer. Last week,, the financial news site that Cramer co-founded and continues to oversee as chairman, lost its longtime CEO, Thomas Clarke. Today the company laid off 18 staffers as part of a plan to slash $2.4 million in costs.

Just a thought! [PaidContent]
