Erin Burnett wades into ‘occupied Wall Street’

Thursday, October 6, 2011

imageYou knew this would happen: CNN’s latest hire, Erin Burnett, comes over from Wall Street-centric CNBC to try to be the next cable anchor star and, lo and behold, one of her first stories is the Occupy Wall Street protests. She’s being roundly excoriated for handling it condescendingly, as Jason Linkins at Huffpo points out, with lots of links provided.

Add: Here’s background on Burnett from London’s Daily Mail last week:

[Burnett] is set to tie the knot with Citigroup executive David Rubulotta. . . .

The American-born journalist started her career as a financial analyst for worldwide investment banking and securities firm Goldman Sachs.

During her time at the company she was headhunted by CNN for the position of writer and booker for the network’s hit show Moneyline.

When Burnett later became Vice President of Citigroup/CitiMedia, she met Rubulotta, who currently serves as an executive with the company.
