Bartiromo Interviews Ex-Citigroup CEO

bartiromo_money_honey_3.jpg

Jawdropping journalistic judgment out of Englewood Cliffs yesterday: CNBC’s “Honey Honey” scandalmonger Maria Bartiromo nabbed an “exclusive” interview with Citigroup chairman Sandy Weill.

You’ll recall Bartiromo’s, uh, sordid recent history with the company.

A pair of TVNewser readers agree: “Have they lost all ethical thought and reason in Englewood Cliffs? I sat there with a stunned look on my face the whole time the interview was going on.” … “Just the hint of scandal makes the interview stupid from a P.R. point of view. Why risk credibility with viewers by giving the interview to Bartiromo?”

Yeah, why not give the interview to newly-annointed “money honey” Becky Quick?
