January 19th, 2021 11:08 PM

While praising President-elect Joe Biden as being the one to bring the country together on CNN’s Cuomo PrimeTime Tuesday, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman proved he wasn’t about that.

Violence-Prone Chris Cuomo Suddenly Preaches MLK's Message of Love

January 18th, 2021 11:38 PM

If CNN PrimeTime host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo was known for anything, it was his desire to use physical violence against his opponents at nearly every turn. Whether it was threatening to throw a Trump supporter down a flight of stairs, fantasizing about choking and punching his critics, to openly threatening the lives of Republican lawmakers, violence was part of who he was. But on Monday…


Cuomo, Lemon Argue Our Riots Were Cooler Than Yours and ‘Justified’

January 12th, 2021 11:44 PM

Politically motivated violence is wrong, disgusting, and not justifiable no matter the cause. But not according to CNN's PrimeTime host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo and CNN Tonight host Don Lemon. During the Tuesday handoff between their shows, the duo essentially argued that the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots from last spring and summer were cooler than last week’s…

Taking a break from the Senate speeches after the seditious attack on the Capitol building Wednesday, CNN's PrimeTime host Chris Cuomo openly wondered if the day’s chaos may “mark a beginning or an end for this country.” Some time went by before he eventually walked it back, but not before he received surprising push back from another liberal journalist.


Cuomo Touts GA Election Official He Once Accused of Voter Suppression

January 4th, 2021 10:37 PM

Some of you might remember when CNN's PrimeTime host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo went toe-to-toe last year with Georgia election official Gabriel Sterling regarding the baseless accusations of voter suppression against the black community.

December 28th, 2020 12:38 AM

In sharp contrast to the wall of criticism by the networks of President Donald Trump's threat to veto the pork laden COVID relief bill,  a refreshing bit of political diversity broke through the groupthink on CNN's Cuomo Prime Time on Tuesday.

I'm Smart and I Want Respect! Cuomo's Most 'Fredo' Moments of 2020

December 22nd, 2020 12:35 AM

You might remember when CNN host Chris Cuomo made headlines in the summer of 2019 when he threatened to physically assault a Trump supporter by throwing them down a flight of stairs because they dared to call him “Fredo.” It was an insult comparing him to Alfredo Corleone, the dumb brother from The Godfather film series. He even got CNN to back up his false claim of it being an ethnic…


Cuomo Claims White House Doing ‘Nothing’ While They Ship Vaccine

December 17th, 2020 11:57 PM

All week, the Trump administration has been distributing the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine across the country to inoculate nursing home residents and health care workers.

But according to conspiracy-peddling Chris “Fredo”…


Cuomo Decries Elderly-Rich Florida Getting More Vaccine than New York

December 16th, 2020 12:19 AM

What does the Cuomo family have against elderly people? First, Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) killed scores of elderly people by ordering COVID patients into nursing homes, and then, on Tuesday, CNN’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo decried how elderly-rich Florida getting more vaccine doses than New York. He even had the nerve to question whether Floridians “should” get the doses they need. And the logic (…


Fredo Launches Segment Dedicated to Vaccine Distribution Conspiracies

December 14th, 2020 11:39 PM

CNN’s Cuomo PrimeTime was something a den for tinfoil hat conspiracy theories against President Trump and his administration. Host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo had overseen such classic segments such as Trump intentionally withheld coronavirus testing, and Trump was going to start a war to hamstring President-elect Biden. But during Monday’s edition of the program, Fredo launched a new nightly…


Adrift in the Void: Cuomo, Lemon Become Detached from Our Reality

December 9th, 2020 12:43 AM

Where to begin? Given just how off-the-wall crazy the Tuesday handoff between Cuomo PrimeTime and CNN Tonight was, it’s actually a really difficult question to answer. Between Don Lemon’s complaint that President Trump didn’t start vaccine research in January and Chris “Fredo” Cuomo bashing Republicans as a “sickness” spreading division, the idea that the former was demanding…


Preparing for War? CNN Says 'We Need to Remain Vigilant' on Trump

December 3rd, 2020 11:57 PM

Cable news daring, Resistance author, and President Trump's niece Mary Trump appeared on Wednesday's Cuomo Prime to warn that the “reckoning” against her uncle was not the 2020 election. Instead, she painted the need for there to be an ever-persistent war against him (and ostensibly his supporters): “[W]e need to be on our guard and continue not to put…


HATEFUL CNN: Trump Deserved Our Treatment of Him

December 3rd, 2020 1:30 PM

CNN hack Chris Cuomo took the time during the Tuesday evening broadcast of Cuomo Prime Time to argue that Trump deserved the atrocious media treatment of him over the past four years.

CNN: GOP Purposely Let COVID Get Bad, Need to Bring 'Cold' Retribution

November 23rd, 2020 10:45 PM

The rhetoric coming from CNN’s Chris Cuomo has gotten more and more disturbing with each passing week since the election.
