The head of Fox Business Network defending anchor Maria Bartiromo‘s interview Sunday with President Donald Trump, which has been criticized for not questioning his false statements, reports Eliza Relman of Business Insider.
Relman writes, “Brian Jones, the president of Fox Business, defended Bartiromo in a statement to Business Insider.
“‘Maria Bartiromo’s wide-ranging interview with President Trump made news on multiple fronts and elicited answers to numerous questions,’ Jones said. ‘We are proud of her hard work and continued success across each of her FBN and FNC programs.’
“‘I will say that I am a little bit frustrated that the last time I interviewed the president was in Lacrosse, Wisconsin, in August of 2016,’ Roberts told Business Insider in April. ‘I’ve been asking for an interview with the president since the day he was elected and they have not complied … And I tell them — by this time in the Bush administration, I’d done four sit-down interviews with him. And in the Clinton administration I’d done a number of sit-down interviews with him as well.'”
