Bloomberg TV’s Stephanie Ruhle Responds to On-Air Sexist Comment

stephanie ruhle cliff asnessStephanie Ruhle is speaking out about a sexist comment made by a guest on her Bloomberg TV show yesterday. AQR Capital founder Cliff Asness, who was guest co-hosting Ruhle’s show, said to her, “You’re giving me the look that I get when I talk to women about quant stuff.”

Ruhle immediately stopped the conversation and said good-naturedly, “Are you hitting me with a sexist line right there? Let me have a time out. I’m like ringing a foul ball bell here.” The comment came two minutes into the two-hour show that Asness was guest-hosting with Ruhle.

In a post on The Daily Beast today, Ruhle explains why she chose to defuse the moment with humor:

I happen to know Cliff, and the truth is he just made a dumb joke at a moment when his mouth and brain weren’t connecting. Which means the relevant issue isn’t the damage done, but the proper response. For me, in the moment, it was to stop the interview and call him out, with as much humor as possible, for a comment even the most ancient chauvinist knows is out of date. And to his credit, Cliff apologized and blushed and made all the proper gestures and noises a moral person should make when they’ve done something stupid. In the end, we both laughed.

I’m quite sure Cliff wasn’t trying to insult me specifically, or women in general. But it’s on everyone—men and women—to knock down stereotypes and outdated assumptions, even when they’re just proffered to fill a little air-time. We don’t need to respond with rage. But we still haven’t come far enough to let such things go unacknowledged.

The World Economic Forum annual meeting is underway in Switzerland, and all three business networks have correspondents in Davos for the week.

Liz Claman is in Davos for FBN. Claman will interview several executives, including the CEOs of Aetna, NASDAQ, Citigroup and Coca-Cola. Also in Davos this week: Maria Bartiromo, who is expected to join FBN next month. Bartiromo will moderate a panel discussion Thursday.

Bloomberg TV has several correspondents at the forum: Francine Lacqua, Tom Keene, Erik Schatzker, Stephanie Ruhle and Hans Nichols.

Andrew Ross Sorkin is in Davos for CNBC. Becky Quick and Joe Kernen will join him tomorrow and the three will host “Squawk Box” live from Switzerland this week.

Bloomberg TV’s Stephanie Ruhle is Pregnant

Ruhle joined Bloomberg in 2011 after 14 years at Deutsche Bank, where she was managing director in global markets senior relationship management.

With Markets Closed, Business Networks Shift to Hurricane Coverage

The three business networks have turned their focus to severe weather coverage today as Hurricane Sandy forced the close of the stock markets. Bloomberg TV, Fox Business and CNBC have all set special coverage plans for today that focus on the economic impact of the storm, expected to make landfall later today.

Bloomberg TV will shift into special Hurricane Sandy coverage at 1pmET, which is when the storm’s intensity is supposed to increase on the East Coast. Stephanie Ruhle and Erik Schatzker anchor the 1pmET hour, Betty Liu anchors the 2pmET hour and Trish Regan and Adam Johnson anchor from 3-6pmET. Meteorologist Bonnie Schneider is handling weather forecasts.

Fox Business broadcast a special report in place of “Imus in the Morning” this morning, anchored by Dagen McDowell and Connell McShane. FBN’s Robert Gray is in Battery Park and Sandra Smith is at the CME throughout the day. Neil Cavuto will host primetime coverage of the storm tonight beginning at 7pmET.

CNBC will have regular programming until 7pmET. The network is replacing “The Kudlow Report” with a live two-hour special report anchored by Bill Griffeth and Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.

The Ticker: Ruhle, CNN en Español, iReporters

  • Stephanie Ruhle joined Bloomberg TV from a Wall Street job less than a year ago. How did that come to be? “I met with [Bloomberg Media Group CEO] Andy Lack. He said, “If you’re in, I’m in. This is a leap for me, too. Close your eyes and let’s do it,’” she tells I Want Her Job.
  • CNN is sending six iReporters, the winners of the “Your Political Ticket” iReport contest, to the political conventions.. Three winners each will be sent to the DNC and the RNC, where they will report live from the CNN Grill on Brooke Baldwin‘s afternoon program.

Barney Frank Vs. Cable Business News, Part 2

Last week we linked to an interview CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo conducted with Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), in which Frank lost his cool with the interviewer. This week, he did it again, this time with Bloomberg TV’s Stephanie Ruhle. It may not have been quite as dramatic as the CNBC flap, but nobody gets PO’d over derivatives quite like the Congressman from Massachusetts. Update: I forgot Frank’s June battle with Fox Business Network’s Melissa Francis. Watch it here.

Bloomberg TV’s New Lineup Launches Tomorrow

Back in April we noted that Bloomberg TV would be shaking up its daytime lineup after the departure of Margaret Brennan. Now we have a date for the new lineup: tomorrow, Monday June 18th.

What are the changes? A refresher:

A simulcast of Tom Keene‘s radio program “Surveillance” which airs from 6-8amET replacing “Inside Track” which was hosted by Erik Schatzker and Stephanie Ruhle

Betty Liu will continue to anchor “In the Loop” from 8-10amET. Then, Schatzker and Ruhle will host a new show at 10am, replacing Brennan’s “In Business.”

We have more details now: Keene’s show will actually be an all-new show across TV, radio and digital, not just a simulcast of his existing radio show. In addition Bloomberg is launching a new noon show called “Lunch Money.”

The Weekend Ticker: Emanuel, Ruhle, Wallace

  • Fox News Channel chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel will receive the Humanitarian Media Achievement Award at the Hellenic Times Scholarship Fund gala tonight. “I never imagined receiving awards, or [having gone to] half the places I’ve been over the years,” he tells the National Herald.
  • Stephanie Ruhle says her transition from Wall Street to Bloomberg TV has been easy. “It’s great because it’s the same stuff I’ve focused on my whole career, and now I get to do it on television,” she tells 201 Magazine. “It’s not even that big of a change because I spent years surrounded by unbelievably talented people in the financial industry, learning from them, working with them.”
  • Jay Wallace, Fox News’ VP of News and senior executive producer of news and politics, talks to Lost Remote about how “America Live with Megyn Kelly” is leveraging social media. “The amazing thing about this social media age is that it’s usage on Megyn’s show and in the newsroom has grown to a point where it is hard to imagine what life was without it,” he said. “It has become second nature in news production.”

JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to FBN: We Screwed Up

The business networks have been in overdrive after J.P. Morgan revealed a $2 billion loss at a London trading unit yesterday. During a live special report last night on Fox Business, Charlie Gasparino reported he talked to CEO Jamie Dimon after the news broke.

“I find him to be refreshingly frank, and that’s essentially what he was,” Gasparino said of the conversation. “He said, ‘listen, we screwed up.’” Watch:

FBN also preempted “Imus in the Morning” today for a special report on the J.P. Morgan news.

Dimon acknowledged on a conference call yesterday that the losses were “somewhat related” to a single London-based trader nicknamed “the London whale,” who was making large bets on credit derivatives. Bloomberg TV’s Stephanie Ruhle broke that story in April.
