Non-Story of the Day

I've read this New York TImes story about Maria Bartiromo twice and I still can't make out what it's about. There's an unsourced allegation that she let a relationship affect a news call, and it's rebutted on the record. There's a lot of slimy insinuation about an affair with a Citibank exec, Todd Thomson. Mostly it's prattling on about her being too close to sources, but in the midst of the Libby trial that's a bit like complaining that someone jaywalked in midtown Manhattan. So what's it about? Maybe it's just that she's the most beautiful woman on television and any excuse to run her picture is a good one. I did, didn't I? (Two babe posts in a row... I've got to stop it.)
