Retiring the ‘Money Honey’ in Money Honey


Jon Friedman would like the media to stop calling Maria Bartiromo by that “frivolous ‘Money Honey’ label.”

Via Marketwatch: “Thanks to good, old-fashioned hard work, Bartiromo, 38, has outgrown the frivolous “Money Honey” label that the nickname-loving media stamped on her a decade ago. And with the passing of the legendary Louis Rukeyser, the 13-year CNBC veteran has deservedly become television’s best known business journalist.”

We would stop, except we actually didn’t read that column.
