NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Stop Coddling the Cuomos with Tim Graham and Nick Fondacaro

December 23rd, 2020 5:25 PM

With Christmas approaching, the creatures weren't stirring so much at the Media Research Center, but there was still time for a NewsBusters Podcast, time for a look back at one of the celebrated Democratic Party families that were coddled throughout 2020: the Cuomos.

This week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo proclaimed before his Albany enablers in the press that Santa Claus would be good to him this year, because he's worked very hard.  Executive editor Tim Graham expresses amazement that somehow this Cuomo is never judged as a COVID failure as New York has the largest number of coronavirus deaths in America. Our New York-based media is putty in his hands. 

Gov. Cuomo has also largely been spared from coverage of accusations of sexual harassment from a former employee of his in the state government, Lindsey Boylan, who is now running for Manhattan borough president. Is #MeToo dead? The same impulse to ignore bad news for Democrats is evident in the Chinese spy story dogging Rep. Eric Swalwell. How much bias by omission is going to overwhelm us in the next year or two? 

Nick Fondacaro joins the show to discuss Chris Cuomo. Nick often "pounces" at night over prime-time bias at CNN, and he prepared a look back at Chris Cuomo's most notable outrages and gaffes over the last year. Join us to recall the lowlights.
