On Saturday, Fox Business Channel host Maria Bartiromo blocked multiple members of the media from viewing her Twitter account after she erroneously claimed on Friday morning that "there are no allegations" of sexual harassment or assault against President Donald Trump, said Mediaite.com.
After Bartiromo made the claim, many rushed to correct her -- with varying degrees of politeness -- and some -- like CNN's media critic Brian Stelter -- were startled that Bartiromo abruptly locked them out of viewing her tweets.
"I’ve always had a cordial relationship with @MariaBartiromo. I can only assume that this tweeted observation is why she suddenly blocked me...," tweeted Stelter.
