    So a couple of weeks ago, Vikram Pandit was canned as CEO of Citigroup.  Bartiromo got an "exclusive" interview with him soon after he "resigned".  She totally lapped up all his bullshit:  he was thinking about it for a while; it was his decision, blah, blah, blah.  I'm sure she got an "A" in stenography because she's sure no reporter.

    Then of course it comes out a few days later (after several more "exclusive" Pandit interviews to other media) that he was fired.

    These people have 0 credibility.  They are the "Entertainment Tonight" of business reporting.  And I say that with apologies to Entertainment Tonight.  They do nothing but tow the corporatists' line, and then wonder why the peasants want to hang them and their Wall Street overlords by their heels.

    •  She was instrumental (10+ / 0-)

      In the greatest pump & dump scam until that time, to wit the 2000 NASDAQ tech stock "boom", where loads of lousy investments were peddled to the public by investment bankers only too glad to get the crap off their balance sheets.  Bartiromo pushed this junk to a credulous audience who lost their shirts betting on her lousy calls.  I'm surprised she still has a job, but after Rick Santelli's scripted rant launching the teabaggers it seems obvious CNBC is rotten to the core.

        importance - or if the SEC was doing its job - Jim Cramer, Maria "Money Honey" Bartiromo, Rick Santelli and a few others would be somewhere not quite as comfortable as their studio chairs.

          don't throw Cramer in there. He is all about supporting the home gamers and tipping them off to the excesses of money managers-- his goal is to teach you to do it yourself so you make your own money. He knows how those guys operate and pulls the curtain back for the rest of us.

          Maria is the worst.  I got so sick of hearing her try to get all her interviewees to say the world would end if Obama won.

          And she is one of the main architects of the fiscal cliff mania. She acts like the whole thing is something Obama created. I have never once heard her mention how it was put in place.

          Amazing how someone so beautiful could be so dumb and toxic.

            one most deserving of mercy. I have a thing against former hedge fund managers and people who use their positions on air to profit themselves but hey...
            He did speak out quite eloquently against attempts at voter suppression.
