Should Fox News Fire Maria Bartiromo?
As of this writing, Maria Bartiromo and Judge Jeanine Pirro are still employed for Rupert Murdoch, who lost nearly $800 million in a defamation settlement with Dominion Voting Systems.
Social media was on fire about whether Bartiromo and Pirro would be fired. My permanent gues John LeBoutillier, was also at Fox for a dozen years, appearing with his compeers Doug Shoen and the late Pat Caddell on Political Insiders.
Bartiromo, of Mornings with Maria Bartiromo on the Fox Business Network as well as Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo on the Fox News Channel is a major player for Fox.
"Oh, God yeah! She's very nice. I've dealt with Maria, and she's very, very nice," LeBoutillier said. "But Jeanine, who I've dealt with a lot – we'd share makeup rooms, and she's a nasty woman. Everybody hates her. She's a witch!"
"If you try to talk with her in the the makeup room, you're in one chair and she's in the chair next to you, she won't talk to you," LeBoutillier said. "And she has these staff people coming over and telling me to get out," he said, bursting out in laughter.
He went on to interestingly point out that the celebs open up with their makeup artists. For me, if I know the person, sure, but no if it's someone I have no connection with.
If Fox should fire Pirro, LeBoutillier couldn't care less.
"She's wicked!" he said. "But Bartiromo has the throne, and I'll be loyal to the queen."
