Isn’t it humorous how the leftist mainstream media not solely covers for all Democrat politicians, but additionally for competing leftists information shops today?
When information of CNN’s newest scandal just lately broke—indeniable proof of Chris Cuomo sexual harassing a colleague in 2005—it ought to have been the lead story for all information networks, given each the recognition of the #MeToo motion and the incessant reporting of day by day Trump rumour from “reputable” sources like porn stars and ambulance chasers.
But different leftist shops like MSNBC stayed silent, additional solidifying their complicity within the nice abandonment of honest and balanced reporting within the trendy age.
The information was simple and true: veteran TV producer Shelley Ross alleged in a New York Times essay printed Friday morning that CNN anchor Chris Cuomo grabbed her buttock at an occasion in 2005 when the 2 of them labored at ABC News. Ross included an e mail that Cuomo despatched to her on the time, apologizing for the incident. Cuomo double-downed on his apology to in an announcement to the Times, thereby validating the story and eliminating all doubt concerning its newsworthiness.
According to Grabien transcripts, although, MSNBC opted to skip protection altogether, as if the harassment by no means even occurred. Unsurprisingly, it’s not the primary time the Peacock shingle has coated for its rival/ally: MSNBC additionally declined to cowl a lot of Cuomo’s involvement within the scandals of his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, which concerned carrying water amidst sexual misconduct accusations, in addition to receiving VIP COVID checks within the early months of the pandemic.
The listing of newsroom oversights within the identify of leftist politics goes on and on. MSNBC failed to say Jeffrey Toobin’s return to CNN after his embarrassing Zoom debacle, after which CNN quietly ignored rapper Nicki Minaj’s viral spat with MSNBC host Joy Reid, as a substitute opting to give attention to Minaj’s vaccine tweets.
Everyone is aware of the sport is rigged at this level, however the abandonment of all journalistic integrity continues to be a sight to behold. I assume the outdated adage is true within the cutthroat media enterprise, as effectively: the enemy of my enemy is my good friend.
