After Months of Pushing Trump’s Election Lies, Fox’s Bartiromo is Getting a Promotion
For years, Donald Trump had his favorites at the Fox News network. He gave Fox and Friends regular access, frequently calling into the show for interviews. Sean Hannity was such a favorite that Trump brought him on stage during a rally in Missouri.
Since he’s lost the November election, though, Trump has had a new Fox favorite. Maria Bartiromo has relentlessly pushed Trump’s claims of election fraud. The President said thank you by granting her an interview shortly after the election. Now the Fox network will be rewarding the anchor as well, by giving her the opportunity to host a show on the main network.
According to the LA Times, Martha McCallum’s 7:00 show will be be replaced. “The new show called ‘Fox News Primetime’ launches tonight with “Fox & Friends” morning show co-host Brian Kilmeade, as previously announced. The Times has learned that other names lined up to helm the program are ‘Sunday Morning Futures’ host Maria Bartiromo and regular contributors to the network Katie Pavlich, Rachel Campos-Duffy, Mark Steyn and former congressman Trey Gowdy.”
Vox’s Aaron Rupar responded to the news, “Imagine promoting Maria Bartiromo after all the nonsense she’s peddled during the Trump years.”
