Maria Bartiromo: What Went Wrong at CNBC, and Why the ‘Money Honey’ Moved to Fox

Famous as the ‘Money Honey,’ Maria Bartiromo is about to begin a Sunday morning show on the Fox News Channel—but not before firing a ringing broadside at her former CNBC bosses.
The “Money Honey” may have moved across the street–from CNBC to Fox–but she’s still the same hyper-competitive, no-nonsense, Brooklyn-born business enthusiast that viewers have come to know as Maria Bartiromo.

“I’m not changing,” the 46-year-old financial news luminary told me on Thursday as she rode back from a sit-down with Ken Frazier, the chairman and CEO of the Merck pharmaceutical empire in the wilds of northern New Jersey. “I’ve always been competitive when it comes to interviews, and I intend to remain the same person.”

THE ELECTRONIC HOLY WAR Crazy Stone defeated Yoshio Ishida, a professional Go player

In May, 1997, I.B.M.’s Deep Blue supercomputer prevailed over Garry Kasparov in a series of six chess games, becoming the first computer to defeat a world-champion chess player. Two months later, the Times offered machines another challenge on behalf of a wounded humanity: the two-thousand-year-old Chinese board game wei qi, known in the West as Go. The article said that computers had little chance of success: “It may be a hundred years before a computer beats humans at Go—maybe even longer.”

Last March, sixteen years later, a computer program named Crazy Stone defeated Yoshio Ishida, a professional Go player and a five-time Japanese champion. The match took place during the first annual Densei-sen, or “electronic holy war,” tournament, in Tokyo, where the best Go programs in the world play against one of the best humans. Ishida, who earned the nickname “the Computer” in the nineteen-seventies because of his exact and calculated playing style, described Crazy Stone as “genius.”

Why is #WallStreet so divorced from reality? A psychological explanation. @ryanlcooper

Noah Smith and Paul Krugman have both noted the strange fact that the financial class, almost across the board, continues to argue for more austerity and a tighter monetary policy, despite the adverse effects these policies could have on the economy as a whole. This kind of blinkered thinking is a hallmark of the 1 percent, which compared to the rest of the country is obsessed with deficit reduction and cutting social insurance.

Meet the #Fed’s new intellectual powerhouse

Janet Yellen led her first monetary policy meeting as chair last week. But with Yellen’s emphasis so far on consensus and continuity, the key news from the Fed last week wasn’t anything Janet Yellen said, but what Federal Reserve Board Governor Jeremy Stein said at the International Research Forum on Monetary Policy on Mar. 21.

+

Jeremy Stein is currently the junior member of the Federal Reserve Board, having served only since May 30, 2012. (Several recent nominees to the Federal Reserve Board have yet to be approved.) But with Ben Bernanke’s departure, Stein now has the most distinguished academic record of anyone currently making decisions about US monetary policy. His background as a Harvard Professor of Economics and former President of the American Finance Association shows. He holds office hours for staff at the Federal Reserve Board, and from the half hour that I once spent with him, I can say that he stands ready to debate the fine points of economic models with anyone. In his speech last Friday, Governor Stein showed how much genuine light an academic approach can shed on practical monetary policy questions in the right hands.

FOODS THAT FIGHT CANCER :: Ginger

Like mushrooms, this pungent, spicy root is a part of medical traditions around the world. It has a well-documented anti-nausea and anti-vomiting effect that may be useful in mitigating the side effects of chemotherapy, and it effectively boosts the immune system by causing sweating. Research strongly indicates that ginger is a powerful tumor suppressant and anticancer agent. One study used gingerols, the active phytonutrients in ginger and the main contributor to its flavor, to kill ovarian cancer cells.

Perhaps just as important as a cancer-fighting boost to your immune system, eating healthy can help keep you feeling better. In the struggle with cancer, diet is something that you have complete control over, and you can make it work to your benefit.

FOODS THAT FIGHT CANCER :: Kale

A cruciferous vegetable related to broccoli, we’ve written about kale before, and its well-deserved reputation as a “superfood” has rocketed it to popularity in recent years. Kale is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds and helps the body rid itself of toxins. Its cancer-preventive properties have been the subject of extensive research, but there’s some evidence that kale may help the body actively fight cancer as well, rather than merely lowering the risk.

They’re packed with nutrients and many varieties are thought to help macrophages more effectively target bacteria, viruses and cancer cells. Shiitake mushrooms, in particular, have well-documented anti-cancer qualities. In addition to helping the immune system function more effectively, they are thought to spur apoptosis (cell death) in tumors in some instances. There is also some evidence that certain types of mushrooms may make cancer medications more effective, though more research is needed. Even crimini mushrooms, the most commonly eaten mushroom in the world, have a wealth of immune-boosting, cancer-fighting properties, perhaps even more than other mushrooms, like shiitakes, that are more commonly thought of as “medicinal.”
