Men Kissing during CNN Lehman Brothers report - Howard Stern hijack turns financial story into a global spectacle

CNN's report on the collapse of Lehman Brothers bank was hijacked by Sal Governale and Richard Christy from the Howard Stern show and the clip has now gone on to get large views on YouTube.

Thousands of people lost their jobs this week when Lehman Brothers bank collapsed. Some people have found the kissing men an entertaining distraction and enjoyed watching CNN studio anchor Robin Meade trying to explain the kissing men: "Two guys trying to make light of the latest situation there, pretending to console each other."

Others have found it distasteful and think the kissing men behind CNN's Allan Chernoff showed disrespect for the Lehman Brothers employees that had lost their jobs.

Howard Stern still knows how to get media attention, but was this a harmless prank or a step too far?
