Innovator or Addict?: Fox Biz Anchors Debate Elon Musk

FBN’s Stuart Varney and Liz Claman got into it a bit today during “Varney & Co.” today.

Claman was on to promote her interview with SpaceX founder Elon Musk around 3:30pmET. Varney says Musk “is addicted to tax breaks” and said a claim of creating more than 6,000 jobs at a new gigafactory in Nevada, is overblown. To which Claman said, “I’m so surprised to see you … You sound, now, like a democrat, actually.”

  • Katie Couric produced and narrated a documentary on childhood obesity that is being shown at Sundance Film Festival. “I have covered this story for all my years in television news, and I thought: ‘Why am I still talking about this, 30 years later?

Maria Bartiromo Just the Latest CNBC Talent to Jump to FBN

maria bartiromo_304x200For Maria Bartiromo, 20 years at CNBC was enough. We don’t know yet where on Fox Business she will be anchoring, but we do know the move, announced earlier today, will re-unite her with many of her former CNBC colleagues, including:

Liz Claman joined FBN just after it launched in Oct. 2007.

Charlie Gasparino joined in Feb. 2010

Dennis Kneale followed 8 months later.

Melissa Francis made the move in June 2012

Neil Cavuto worked for CNBC in the 1990s, and joined Roger Ailes at the launch of Fox News Channel in 1996. Since the launch of FBN in 2007, Cavuto has anchored a show on each of the networks.

Bartiromo’s EP at CNBC, Gary Schreier, made the move the other way. One of the founding producers of FBN, having also worked at Fox News, Schreir jumped to CNBC last year.

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo made the rounds on the business networks this morning, with one major exception: no Fox Business Network. Charlie Gasparino and Liz Claman are not amused by the snub.  “Somebody over there is hashtag spineless,” Claman said on her FBN program this afternoon. “Maybe it’s their PR. Charlie doesn’t think it’s the PR department, by the way.”

“Don’t blame the dumb flacks. You blame the skeevy, nerdy guy that runs the company,” Gasparino responded. Watch below (starting at the 2:40 mark):
