CNN’s Reliable Sources demonstrated the usual partisan tilt on Sunday. Host Brian Stelter came out of the latest briefing from Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York championing his “glass half-full” approach. Then he turned to CNN medical contributor Dr. James Phillips, and they both gushed over Cuomo’s briefings as so much better than President Trump’s.
Even in this time of crisis and death, some in the news media launched partisan attacks on Republican governors regardless of actual data, including how many people have died. We see this in the media all the time: journalists often cherry-pick commentary and data to support the side they like and attack the other. Here we see an example on the left. Last week, CNN's "The Point with Chris Cillizza" published an article, “The next 5 governors to watch on coronavirus.” In it, Cillizza discussed seven governors and strongly criticized the only two Republican governors mentioned.
It’s seemingly become routine for CNN to test the boundary of journalistic ethics and have Prime Time host Chris Cuomo interview his older brother, the Democratic governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo on his show. During Monday’s appearance, Chris proved why he was the “Fredo” of the family when he tried and ultimately failed to egg Andrew into bashing President Trump and commit to, at least, be open to running for president “at some point.”
Lester Holt gave Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York a mostly laudatory interview from a field hospital on Friday's Nightly News.

If you want to maintain job security at the Washington Post, you must adhere to the Orange Man Bad narrative- whether you are a conservative, or a "conservative" such as columnist Kathleen Parker. On Tuesday, Parker stuck to that policy by writing yet another column based on the Orange Man Bad narrative concerning the response to coronavirus: "Let Andrew Cuomo speak for America, not Trump."
This week, President Donald Trump began openly considering at what point the American government ought to take steps to reopen the American economy. He explained: "Our country wasn't built to be shut down. America will again and soon be open for business," suggesting that the timeline will be weeks instead of months.
While new polls show the public’s record-high approval ratings of President Trump’s leadership during this coronavirus pandemic, the media is trying to direct attention onto the leadership of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, with obnoxious sycophantic puff pieces. For example, take this adoring article on CNN’s website by Chris Cillizza entitled, “Everyone needs to see Andrew Cuomo's inspiring words on the fight against coronavirus.”
The goo is spewing forth from The New York Times. Gov. Andrew Cuomo's coronavirus briefings -- "His briefings — articulate, consistent and often tinged with empathy — have become must-see television." They're described as "communal therapy sessions," as Cuomo finds "a poetic, almost sentimental streak amid the dark news."
Does it make sense for liberal CNN host Chris Cuomo to interview his liberal Democrat brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, on the network’s prime time line-up? According to the network, it’s the perfect place for two members of a prominent Democrat family to bash the Republican president.
President Trump held a call with the nation's governors on Monday to address procurement concerns surrounding vital medical equipment that people may require when getting treatment for COVID-19.

While it’s the media’s job to inform the public with facts during a pandemic, liberals in the media have instead chosen to taken advantage of the situation by pushing a big government agenda down everyone’s throats during their coronavirus coverage. Sunday, MSNBC let New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio fearmonger over why we need nationalized everything to combat the virus’s spread. Monday on ABC’s Good Morning America, the news network let New York Governor Andrew Cuomo push forward the same argument.
In October 2018, during Sabbath morning services, a white supremacist attacked the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, murdering 11 people and wounding another six.

Both incidents started absolutely necessary conversations about the prevalence and nature of the white supremacist threat to Jews across the country.
