Maria Bartiromo and Erin Burnett both said in the latest issue of Vanity Fair that their rivalry is fabricated but for some reason, Rupert Murdoch i.e. Fox-owned Page Six isn't having it. The gossip column insists that the catfight is real, god damn it, real, and backs up the assertion with a quote from an insider, who says, of feud being faux, "That's bull[bleep]." It's sort of bizarre that the Post, whose business channel is CNBC's only competition, would want you believe that there is a hatred that exists between Burnett and Bartiromo that, at any second, could cause them to pull each other's hair and clothes off, and maybe kiss. Like, wouldn't that make people want to tune in to see what might happen on CNBC, as opposed to what might not happen on Fox Business? Anyway, not saying Page Six is wrong here but like we've said before, this catfight is getting boring. A few weeks ago, we asked you to inject some fresh fur flying capital into this supposed rivalry, but no one did. So, at this time, either take up that challenge again, or decide which duo we should pass the torch on to.
