Posted on 02/19/2014 7:35:14 AM PST by Cringing Negativism Network

Just heard. At least I think I did, can anyone confirm this?

Maria Bartiromo is going to Fox Business News, and (if I heard right) will chair the news desk, starting next Monday morning.

Is this true? (hoping so)

All I heard was that Stuart Varney said he was moving to 11:00 eastern time soon. So maybe it is true.

She had already joined FBN prior to this.

She’s a (star) business anchor at another network. Or perhaps more accurately, was a star business anchor at another network.

Big-time.

Just saying.

Bloomberg and CNBC, you’ve got competition.

Finally. If this is true anyway... Still hoping for confirmation.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS !!!!!!!!!!!!

Women in America spend most of the money in a typical Family, so good for FOX for showcasing such a well-known, and highly respected, objective, financial motor-mouth to connect with Women.

Hopefully, FOX’s Empty Suits will not continue trying to subject us to the insanity of their failed “fair and balanced” policy by pairing Maria with a proponent of the failed Keynesian “Liberal Intelligentsia Economics,” (LIE), that Commie Obama has used to harm America so successfully for the last 5 years.

The “Money Honey” came on board at FBN a while back.

a star business anchor at another network

She was a big fish in a very little pond over there. What value she brings to Fox Business is beyond me.

Great, another Fox Hottie.

Ailes is building FBN the same way he built FNC;
Anchors with solid business acumen;
Analysts who actually understand business and economics;
As many anchors and analysts as possible are hot babes;
Success.

It’s a brilliant, unbeatable strategy.

I dunno.

I believe this (if true) is a brilliant strategy and will launch FBN into the lead.

So, they’re going to bump Varney? Doesn’t sound like a good move to me.

“bump” as in move him later in the morning I believe.

Again all of this is unsubstantiated.

I’m not a fan of her style so I’m not impressed with this move. I also wonder about the wisdom of bringing in someone from a weak and ideologiclly driven competitor like CNBC.

IMHO FB already has a great team of talented people who offer good insights into the financial/economic issues of the day. She needs FB a lot more than FB needs her.

“Bumping” him would mean he doesn’t cover one of the most important daily events on Fox Business Channel: The opening of the market. That’s not a simple move, it’s a major demotion.

Amen! She is a loud motor mouth, who may be very liberal.

She starts the “Opening Bell” at 9am Monday the 24th. From watching her she’s no lib and pro business. She’s friends with Roger Ailes.

But does she have the “star” impact with Warren Buffett interviews, that Liz Clayman does? /s

I can’t imagine that the rest of the FB staff is too thrilled about her arrival. I may be proven wrong but I don’t see the upside of this, especially given that Fox is undoubtablly paying her big time to come onboard. The change in viewership won’t justify the investment.

It appears to be more of a case of Fox wanting to stick it to rival CNBC than being a sound business decision with a good payback.

Well I’m all for him holding a good job, but I (never) watch FBN. Ever.

It is always switching between Bloomburg and CNBC.

Until next week...

Now I’ve finally got a real competitor. I hope he does well, but I also hope Maria Bartiromo is on the morning on Fox Business Channel.

Nothing against him mind you. But I’m strongly for Maria.

Bump.

I used to watch the CNBC financial people sometimes before Fox Business was available.

My wife couldn’t believe that I ever watched the Motor Mouth. She is very supportive of women in business as long as they have the skills and personalities to do the job. Her evaluation of Motor Mouth and naming her as such was on target then.
