Gosh, those TV types can be snippy.

Snarky items have been popping up in the gossip columns about rival CNBC presenters Maria Bartiromo and Erin Burnett [’98]. It has been alleged that off camera, the two beauties do nothing except seethe with jealousy over each other’s success.

But some say one source of the stories is Burnett’s agent, Alan Berger.

“Berger started this feud with Maria to increase Burnett’s profile, because the Fox Business channel is launching and he wants to get her a spot there,” says one insider.

“The only thing the leaks are doing is hurting Burnett’s credibility as a newscaster.”


Yeah, right, that’s the key to getting the big money from the networks: “credibility.” (Hat tip to Dealbreaker.)
