GOP Debate: Was Maria Bartiromo Campaigning For Hillary Clinton?

Maria BartiromoSomething rather remarkable happened a couple of nights ago.  I’ve only seen one small report on this little vignette from the GOP presidential debate last Tuesday.  To date I can find no YouTube video footage.  Perhaps in the grand scheme of things it’s really not that important.  However, it’s worth remembering that Fox Business News promised us an impartial debate, featuring the candidates, with no CNBC-style editorializing or discounting of the candidates’ credentials.  Remember that?

The brief episode to which I’m alluding here was sufficiently glaring that Business Insider’s reporters Brett LoGiurato and Colin Campbell found it worthy of publishing a very brief report about former CNBC anchor Maria Bartiromo’s venture into declaring what a highly qualified, impressive and worthy candidate Hillary Clinton is, when compared to the field of Republican candidates on the debate stage.  Her little Hillary-campaign speech drew some booing from the audience.  From the BI report:

Fox Business Network moderator Maria Bartiromo was briefly booed by a Republican-friendly debate crowd Tuesday night when she brought up former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s résumé.

There are some rather interesting items to study in that resume’, not the least of which are this – and this.

Near the end of the debate, Bartiromo was interrupted when she asked the candidates to compare their records against Clinton. Bartiromo said Clinton has an “impressive résumé,” provoking the audience reaction.

With Fox’s parent company now in the hands of Rupert Murdoch’s flaming leftist sons, I wondered how the FBN gang would ever be able to stay impartial through the entire broadcast.  True to form, Bartiromo cleverly threw a crafty left jab at all of the candidates, in favor of Hillary.  Apparently not too many reporters even noticed it.  Or, if they did notice it, they didn’t bother to mention it later.

The moderator pointed out that Clinton has spent “more time in government than almost all of you on stage tonight.”

(Except for perhaps Jeb Bush?  He’s long been the Fox News team’s odds-on fav for the nomination.)

“Why should the American people trust you to lead this country even though she has been so much closer to the office?” she [Bartiromo] asked.

Here’s a better question, Ms. Bartiromo.  With Mrs. Clinton’s long history of brazen mendacity, why would the American people trust her to lead this country?

Anyone have a guess as to who will get Ms. Bartiromo’s vote next year?


About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

    I also noticed the “moderator’s” campaign propaganda for Hillary Clinton. From what I recall, she said that Clinton has more “experience” than everyone on stage “combined.” I was shocked to see her so openly promote Clinton, especially with Clinton being such a catastrophe as Secretary of State- pushing the “Arab Spring” that has caused so many problems in Libya, Syria, Egypt, and now spills over with the great influx of Muslims into Europe. If she was really asking a question impartially, she would have said something like: “Clinton asserts that her many years of experience in office, be they viewed detrimental or beneficial to the nation, grants her greater credentials and insight for becoming the president; how do you weigh your public experience and accomplishments alongside hers?” But, no, clearly Maria was planting a biased image in viewers’ minds. I lost respect for her. Pathetic. People are waking-up to progressive media’s subtle manipulations.
