Morning Media Menu With Squawk Box‘s Becky Quick

mornmm.gifToday on the Menu CNBC’s Becky Quick joins us straight off the set of Squawk Box, which she co-hosts every morning.

Quick talks about how she and her colleagues try to balance their coverage of the crisis so it can be understood by a larger audience: “We try not to dumb it down…to still appeal to that core customer who’s been with us for years and years, but we do catch ourselves from time to time maybe explaining these terms a little more slowly.”

Quick also talks about Facebook’s privacy concerns — she recently closed down her own account — and why we should be paying for content. You can listen to the podcast live every morning at 9amET on BlogTalkRadio.com/mediabistro and call in at 646-929-0321. You can also subscribe to the iTunes feed of the podcast by clicking the “iTunes” button.

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?

    The votes are in, and it appears Maria Bartiromo‘s “Money Honey” fears weren’t so irrational after all. Ladies and gentleman, your new “money honey”: Squawk Box co-anchor Becky Quick.

    Some fun facts about Ms. Quick — she’s 34, a Wall Street Journal vet and Rutgers University grad (class of ’93, Poli-Sci major). Quick was even editor-in-chief of the Daily Targum, Rutgers’ student newspaper. She joined CNBC in 2001. She even has a fan site maintained by “fans of Becky Quick, and most of us have never even met her.”

    But Quick wasn’t the only “money honey” candidate to garner praise. Some anonymous commentary:

    Poll Update: Dead Heat For Hottest ‘Money Honey’? Not Quite

    Who do you think is CNBC’s hottest “money honey”? Apparently not Maria Bartiromo, whose $50,000 flight on a Citigroup jet may have sent her “hottie” stock dropping. Bartiromo is currently in third behind up-and-comers Erin Burnett and the surging Becky Quick.

    But fear not, Bartiromo fans — there’s still time to vote:

    Polls close Sunday.
