Corbin Bolies of The Daily Beast writes about Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo and her future at the company given her involvement in questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election.

Bolies writes, “Bartiromo in particular has emerged as a central figure in Fox’s ongoing woes. She was a key on-air booster of former President Donald Trump’s 2020 election-fraud lies and, in internal documents made public last month in the Dominion case, she said she was ‘depressed’ by Joe Biden’s election win and texted Trump aides such as Steve Bannon that she simply refused to accept his victory.

“‘I want to see massive fraud exposed. Will [Trump] be able to turn this around,’ she asked Bannon on Nov. 10, three days after Fox projected Biden as the winner. ‘I told my team we’re not allowed to say pres elect. Not in scripts. Not in banners on air. Until this moves through the courts.’

“Bartiromo was also named as a defendant in a separate defamation lawsuit filed by another voting tech company, Smartmatic, and she was heard on tapes produced by Grossberg, the former Carlson and Bartiromo producer, who alleged the network coerced her into false statements during her Dominion deposition.”
