Fox News host Maria Bartiromo sparked the ire of her viewers on Sunday after airing a segment that contradicts President Donald Trump’s claims of election fraud.
While Bartiromo was not the only Fox News host who aired doubts about Trump’s conspiracy theories over the weekend, it was her segment that finally sent viewers into a revolt against the conservative network.
According to reports, at least one Fox Business host and as many as three Fox News hosts aired a pre-taped segment with a spokesperson from Smartmatic, a voting systems software company.
During the segment, Bartiromo aired a pre-taped segment with a spokesperson from Smartmatic, a voting systems software company.
The segment was met with contempt from viewers, who refused to believe that the election fraud claims had been debunked.
One viewer slammed Bartiromo as a “sellout.” Another quipped that Fox News needs to be ashamed for airing the interview.

Feeling so sorry for @MariaBartiromo, having to air that dribble at the end of today's @SundayFutures. A nobody voting machine expert, who knows nothing and says so in response to a computer generated interviewer. @FoxNews needs to be ashamed for making her air this tripe.

When an “expert” says “I am not aware of” means they have not done any research and they are getting paid to be on a tv show. #mariabartiromo

Who got to @MariaBartiromo? Why has she put this fraud Eddie Perez, clearly an apologist for Smartmatic, on her show TWICE to read scripted denials to scripted questions– right down to reading back the questions, a deposition trick taught by good trial attorneys? #Election2020
