This is an example of why conservative corporate media is stoking the flames raging in America that causes some people to become unhinged.  She interviewed Senator Ben Cardin this afternoon, and hardly let him speak as you'll see after the squiggle...

Maria's behavior toward Senator Cardin was over the top.  CNBC has a slogan called "Rise Above" to try to be an activist network and get a compromise fiscal cliff agreement.  Of course, to corporatist conservatives like Bartiromo, the DEMS are the ones in the way of any agreement and she hates, HATES, that senators actually would like to raise taxes on the rich as this video clip shows clearly...

How many times did Maria interrupt Senator Cardin, mid-sentence?  How could she get away with asking him to step down if we can't get an agreement?  How does she get off questioning his competence?  The people of Maryland may have a different idea.

I think Maria Bartiromo should apologize to Senator Cardin on-air for her cheapshots and uncivil performance, mainly meant to get ratings, I'm sure.  Short of that, I think SHE should step down.  Or Comcast/CNBC should fire her.  We've had enough of her and other conservative media vitriol.  To her, "Rise Above" must mean rising above 60 decibels.


Should Maria Bartiromo apologize on air to Senator Cardin?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
