Criticism of Fox News as “state media” during the era of Donald Trump’s presidency expanded after Fox News personality Maria Bartiromo continually praised the commander-in-chief during an “exclusive” interview.
Below is a compilation of some of the best analysis of the interview:
Bartiromo has zero credibility. She rubberstamps outrageous lies like a lobotomized zombie. https://t.co/KALlL7a5Rg

She’s lije a bobble head doll just nodding.

Donald Trump repeats his ridiculous baldfaced lie that ICE is liberating American towns/cities during a word-salad interview with Fox's Maria Bartiromo. pic.twitter.com/QoHXuOlG7b

Bartiromo is a GOP, hard-right stooge. That was not an interview, that was a script.

@MariaBartiromo has lost all credibility related to economics and financial markets. She has bought into the Trump regime and has lost ability to have critical thought, complex conversation and sound reasoning.

Wall Street insiders have thought she was a joke for over ten years now. The market boards I follow (which have lots of conservative Republicans) pretty unanimously laugh at her "journalism."

When Trump supporters say the media is biased, they simply mean that most journalists don’t unequivocally agree with Trump when he makes false/subjective claims. Their vision of good journalism is Bartiromo’s sycophancy, which would fit in very well in authoritarian state media. https://t.co/c4WlyxwZy8

Sounds like an interview from the old "Radio Moscow" days when farm production was always improving. This would be hilarious if it was just satire and not "reality."

Bartiromo's journalistic philosophy is "Don't forget the balls…don't forget the balls…." https://t.co/YyqZ8TSIpN
