    This is a total bombshell for the financial media world. CNBC's "Money Honey" Maria Bartiromo is headed to Fox Business Network, Matt Drudge first reported while she was anchoring "Closing Bell" this afternoon. CNBC has confirmed this for us. "After 20 years of groundbreaking work at CNBC, Maria Bartiromo will be leaving the company as her contract expires on November 24th. Her contributions to CNBC are too numerous to list but we thank her for all of her hard work over the years and wish her the best," CNBC's Brian Steel said in a statement to Business Insider. This summer,...

  • Starbucks’ Schultz: Obamacare Execution Is “Off the Rails”

    10/31/2013 1:04:42 PM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 43 replies
    Schultz was interviewed by CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo Wednesday, and during his time on the air, he explained how his support of the health law has turned stale on account of its poor execution. He told CNBC that, ”Unfortunately, in this kind of situation, execution trumps strategy. It might be a great strategy, but the execution is really flawed. It’s off the rails.” The statement is surprising coming from Schultz, considering he has long been a firm supporter of President Barack Obama’s health law. This reality is highlighted by the Huffington Post, which reports that he described the Affordable Care Act...

    Bartiromo Takes Frank to Task Over Lack of ’08 Financial Crisis Prosecutions • Frank: 'Individuals' should be prosecuted on Wall Street, will not say who Former Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank (D., Mass.) advocated criminal prosecutions against “individuals” involved in the 2008 financial crisis and the subsequent collapse on Wall Street Friday on CNBC. Maria Bartiromo reacted incredulously to Frank’s refusal to name specific individuals who may have perpetrated criminal wrongdoing, accusing the former Congressman of playing populist politics by making specious allegations against the financial industry. Frank attempted to deflect the criticism by stating as Chair of House Financial Services...

    Maria Bartiromo cuffed Senator Ben Cardin (D., MD) about the ears when he turned up on her show to peddle the party line on the fiscal cliff negotiations. Having unsuccessfully explored alternatives to raising tax rates with him, she commented: “That’s all you want to do. That’s it. It’s your way or the highway. Raise the rates on the rich. No other way. Your way or the highway. That’s it. That’s where we are. Thank you, Senator.”Bartiromo was not amused. She heatedly observed: “You’re talking about $1.2 trillion in revenue, but you’re not prepared to put anything on the...

    Liberal fascism, anyone? Add Barney Frank to the list of Thomas Friedman and Ray LaHood who regret that in the United States, that darn Constitution gets in the way of the enlightened class imposing its will on the rest of us benighted peons. Sparring with Mario Bartiromo on CNBC this afternoon, Dem congressman Frank, expressing frustration at his inability to get through legislation he favors, lamented: "unfortunately, under this American system of government, you have these checks and balances." Yeah, so unfortunate. If only Barney could be king for a day. View the video here.

    If there were any doubt that Eliot “Client 9” Spitzer has spiraled down into further delusion and irrelevance, it was erased Friday afternoon in an embarrassing and bizarre shootout between the disgraced former NY Attorney General and CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo. At issue were allegations that a trove of private emails may exist showing the former purchaser of high-priced prostitutes launched a personally motivated prosecution against former AIG chief Hank Greenberg. Of the eight charges Spitzer brought against Greenberg, six have been dropped, with the last two in the process of being dismissed, according to Greenberg’s lawyer. Still, throughout the interview...

    Herman Cain's presidential campaign had basically been left for dead when the 2012 Republican presidential candidates took the debate stage in Michigan Wednesday. Sexual harassment accusations had plagued his campaign for nearly two weeks, and his deny-to-the-death strategy was not going as planned. But divine providence stepped in on Cain's behalf tonight, in the form of Rick Perry. The Texas Governor's spectacular meltdown on stage at the debate did what many in the media had believed impossible — divert the spotlight away from the Cain affair and on to the embarrassing shortcomings of a lower-tier candidate, as reporters gleefully hopped...

    During Wednesday night's presidential debate, Newt Gingrich could barely restrain his amusement as co-moderator Maria Bartiromo defended the liberal media's reporting of the economy. Bartiromo took umbrage after Gingrich's asserted, "What is amazing to me is the inability of much of our academic world and much of our news media and most of the people on Occupy Wall Street to have a clue about history." The CNBC journalist responded by huffing, "I'm sorry, but what is the media reporting inaccurately about the economy?" An incredulous Gingrich mocked, "I love humor disguised as a question. That's terrific." [ See video below....

    From what I read today at the Chicago Tribune and the LA Times: "The CNBC host asked that if corporations care about the character of their chief executive officers, why shouldn't Americans care about the character of their presidential candidates?" 1.) Why shouldn't Americans care about the character of their presidential candidates... When did Cain ever say that Americans don't care about the character of their presidential candidates? 2.) On top of this apparently loaded question, this was shifted to Romney, who was - somehow - fortuitously placed right next to Cain during this debate. Coincidence? 3.) Now the MSM...

    CAIN: Yes. BARTIROMO: You know that shareholders are reluctant to hire a CEO where there are character issues. Why should the American people hire a president if they feel there are character issues? CAIN: The American people deserve better than someone being tried in the court of public opinion based on unfounded accusations. That's... (APPLAUSE) And I value my character and my integrity more than anything else. And for every -- one person that comes forward with a false accusation, there are probably -- there are thousands who would say none of that sort of activity ever came from Herman...

    While everyone is scratching their heads and trying to figure out how the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) lost nearly 1,000 points before rallying back to lose only 347 points - it appears not to be limited to just one stock. On CNBC's May 6 "Closing Bell," correspondent Matt Nesto explained that investigators for both the stock exchanges and for Citigroup, the firm that some are pointing fingers at for a so-called trader error, have narrowed it down to a futures index called the E-mini S&P 500. "A person familiar with the Citi investigation said one focus of the trading...

    But silver is where the real opportunity lies. Jim Rogers has been doing the media rounds lately, and yesterday evening he showed up on CNBC talking to Maria Bartiromo. He remains -- not surprisingly at all -- bullish on gold and silver. CNBC: With central banks now buying gold and many people worried about paper money, gold will be a great investment over the next decade and relatively few people are invested in it, he said. At a speech in Prague Rogers surveyed about 300 people, including big money managers, and 76 percent had never owned gold, he said. "So...

    At least one journalist isn't impressed by the health care initiatives of the White House and congressional Democrats, and is warning of consequences should they succeed. CNBC's Maria Bartiromo was on MSNBC's July 27 "Morning Joe" to preview her upcoming special "Meeting of the Minds: The Future of Health Care," set to debut on July 27. According to the Bartiromo, who also anchors "Closing Bell" and "Wall Street Journal Report with Maria Bartiromo," much of the increased costs of health care could be prevented with changes in lifestyle and behavior. "You know, I mean the issue is - 70 percent...

    Good thing Jack Welch criticized Barack Obama on national TV and not at a toney New York party: he might never have been invited to sip Cosmos with the cocktail set again . . . Appearing on Morning Joe today, the former GE CEO lambasted Pres. Obama’s lack of focus, calling it “crazy.” But he observed that people who broach even the slightest criticism of Obama do so at peril of becoming pariahs in the New York set. Even his own “trust-fund daughters” will hear no evil when it comes to the prez. JACK WELCH: This guy is locked in...

    Call it "The Wild 'n Crazy Guy–Billionaire Style." Maria Bartiromo's interview of Prince Alwaleed, the largest shareholder of Citigroup, is literally a Saturday Night Live skit waiting—begging—to be made. CNBC's Bartiromo conducted the interview by remote this afternoon. When the camera went to the prince, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, you might have expected to find him in a TV studio, or perhaps in his business office, or even in one of his palace rooms. But no, there he was sitting outdoors apparently by his stables, with seated camels and sleek horses very visible in the background. And rather than being...

    Shades of McCain from an unlikely corner . . . When at the beginning of the current financial mess John McCain declared that "the fundamentals of the economy are strong," he was roundly lambasted by the MSM, while the Obama campaign called his statement "an enormous mistake." So, should we expect the liberal media and the Obama campaign to go after Barney Frank . . . now that he has said something remarkably similar? Discussing the markets with Maria Bartiromo on CNBC this afternoon, Frank declared: "I think it's clear that the fundamentals are better than the psychology." View video...

    CNBC yesterday moved to defend its star anchor Maria Bartiromo, amid increasing questions about her relationship with a former top Citigroup executive. Earlier this week, the financial-services conglomerate ousted Todd Thomson, chief of its wealth-management unit, after Mr. Thomson's spending and friendship with Ms. Bartiromo angered Citigroup Chairman and Chief Executive Charles Prince. His concerns related to judgment issues, including improper use of the corporate jet -- one case involving a trip from Asia with Ms. Bartiromo -- and a decision to spend $5 million on a Sundance Channel program in which she would appear, according to a person familiar...

    I was stunned to tune in to the Chris Matthews show on NBC Sunday morning, where the irrepressible Dem-shill Matthews was defanged by Maria Bartiromo, Norah O'Donnell, Clarence Page (!), and Cokie Roberts. The overall tenor of the show was thus: Kerry is done. Faster than I could reach for the bowl of Cap'n Cruch I was fumbling out of my hands, O'Donnell and Roberts conceded that the Kerry Campaign was going down the toilet with little hope for a turnaround. Both pointed out that Bush's lead was historically insurmountable with only 50 days left until the election. Maria B....
