Still tellin' us what's happening on Wall St.

Maria Bartiromo

TEXT OF STORY

SCOTT JAGOW: If you watch CNBC, I'm sure you've seen Maria Bartiromo. She's been reporting from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange for years.

Maria's relationship with a Citigroup executive has been a big business story this week. This executive, Todd Thomson, was fired Monday.

Apparently, his boss didn't like where that relationship was going — like to Asia in a Citigroup corporate jet.

Yesterday, CNBC defended Bartiromo and said the trip was a legitimate assignment.

I imagine Joey Ramone won't argue. He wrote a whole song about Maria.
