Oh, have the mighty fallen. Once upon a time, New York Gov. Cuomo was a hero of the left. Some even wanted him to run for president early in 2020.
Now, the man is embroiled in a nursing home scandal and an FBI investigation. One of his top aides revealed they covered up the number of deaths from nursing homes. Democrats in the state want to strip him of his emergency powers.
CNN is getting some heat, too. During the crisis that started last March, Cuomo’s own brother interviewed him many times. As you can imagine, little brother Chris didn’t really hit Andrew with the hard questions.
Now, the struggling network is banning Chris from interviewing him.
From the NY Post:
CNN claimed Wednesday that it has reinstated a “rule” that prevents Chris Cuomo from “interviewing or covering his brother” — after the host completely ignored the nursing home death cover-up scandal engulfing Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
At the height of the crisis in New York, it appears Gov. Cuomo would not do any interviews with most CNN hosts—except for his brother.
Hmm… I wonder why? Maybe it had to do with the fact that Chris refused to question Andrew about the growing nursing home scandal.
Even for CNN, Chris was showing a shocking level of bias. But what can you expect, they’re brothers!
Why did the network let that go on for so long? You don’t have to be a genius to realize a man won’t throw his brother under the bus.
But if you’re in the business of reporting, maybe you should get a host with a shred of integrity to interview the governor (if they have anyone like that life at CNN).
Only now, with the scandal blowing up on all fronts, is CNN trying to salvage its reputation. Cuomo might not be willing to do interviews with anyone else at CNN.
But at least they can’t get blamed for treating him with kid gloves, because of Chris.
(They’ll just get blamed for treating Biden and every other Democrat with kid gloves!)
Maybe we can get a straight answer from Gov. Cuomo soon. But maybe not until the facts over this FBI investigation come to light.
- CNN has banned Chris Cuomo from interviewing his brother, Gov. Cuomo.
- This comes as Chris was accused of softball interviews with New York’s leader.
- Cuomo has been mired in scandals after his office admitted to a cover-up.
