Maria Bartiromo Donald Trump
At the outset, Bartiromo’s ratings at Fox Business were grim. During the 2016 Republican presidential nomination race, she formed an on-air friendship with Donald Trump. During Donald Trump’s presidency, she moved substantially to the right and became a champion of the Trump administration. Bartiromo agreed with and did not challenge, Trump’s statements, many of which were dismissed as misleading or unsubstantiated. She reported, without proof, that Trump had been overthrown in a “coup” in 2020. She called the unmasking of an American who was the target of a counter-intelligence investigation “the biggest political scandal we’ve ever seen”
Maria Bartiromo was blamed for not questioning Donald Trump’s false accusations of electoral fraud. She was also blamed for showing her confidence in his claims. Attorneys for Smartmatic, a voting machine corporation suspected baselessly of working with rival Dominion Voting Devices to rig the result, sent Fox News a letter urging legal action and seeking retrenchment. Fox News personalities Lou Dobbs and Jeanine Pirro have both encouraged falsehoods in their shows. One of the three shows ran the same three-minute video clip, refuting the false claims days later, but none of the three hosts individually gave retractions. The Fox News host justified himself by arguing that a substantial portion of the media was taking sides and involved in “election interference.”
