Erin Burnett Says Her Former Colleague Maria Bartiromo Has ‘Lost Her Way’

There was a time several years ago when Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo and CNN host Erin Burnett were working for the same network, CNBC.

Since then, Burnett has gone on to host an evening show on CNN while Bartiromo currently works for Fox News, where she regularly disseminates all sorts of bizarre right-wing conspiracy theories.

Speaking with David Axelrod on The Axe Files, Mediaite reports, Burnett said she truly believes that Bartiromo has “lost her way.”

“I always thought her greatest strength was that she was a hard worker and I feel that she lost her way. Clearly, she’s lost her way. I’m obviously not personally close to her, but I think it’s sad what has happened to be honest because she was a very hard worker.”

Axelrod asked Burnett if she thought the two were in direct competition with each other during their time together at CNBC. She responded:

“We definitely were, and I don’t know, maybe as life goes on I’ll get more perspective on it, I think there is a desire out there for there to be a women versus women thing. I hope that that’s lessened over time, but when I was there that was certainly part of it.”

Recently, Bartiromo had this to say on her show:

“Some people have told me … this administration does not see Putin as the enemy, they see him as a partner on many issues.”

Really? Then why is the Biden administration arming the Ukrainian freedom fighters and the president making it clear he sees Putin as a war criminal? Bartiromo’s comment sounds like something she made up and decided to share with faithful Fox viewers who believe whatever BS the network is selling.

Maria Bartiromo is a hack. And she hasn’t only lost her way. She clearly sold her soul the day she arrived at Fox.

love the description of yourself Andrew Bradford. I know how you feel by living in Texas and the enemies re-elected their governor after all the stuff he did. Amazing.
