Cuomo “should be one of the most loathed officials in America right now,” says Wednesday’s opinion piece by Lyta Gold and Nathan Robinson. They proceed to offer a thickly-sourced argument as to why the governor was at fault for New York leading the nation in the number of Covid-19 cases and deaths alike.
As one particularly stunning visual example, they bring up the “mask mural,” a wall of handmade cloth masks Cuomo showed off to reporters on April 29 as “a monument to himself,” they say, rather than distributing them to New Yorkers in need, even as he had the NYPD violently arrest residents who didn’t have them.
It might come as a surprise that this article did not appear on the site of Breitbart or Fox News, but the far-left Guardian – a UK-based publication that has largely toed the mainstream media line in celebrating the New York governor as a hero and contrasting him favorably to President Donald Trump.
Gold and Robinson even bring this up, noting that the press has focused on “Cuomo’s aesthetic presentation: his poise during press conferences, his dramatic statements about ‘taking responsibility’ (even when he obviously hasn’t), and his invisible good looks.”
This last bit might even be a reference to a particularly infamous TV segment earlier this month, when Governor Cuomo was interviewed – not for the first time – by his younger brother and CNN host Chris, not about the pandemic but about being “single and ready to mingle.”
MSM Gives NY Gov Cuomo A Pass On Everything
If you need proof of the liberal-biased media fawning over their new shiny object.
Despite the Coronavirus infecting 350,000 people in New York State, which resulted in the deaths of 22,000 of their fellow New Yorkers.
Imagine if this was Don Jr. and Donald Trump?
I can’t imagine how fast CNN, and Chris Cuomo would pounce on how disrespectful Trump was to all those that died during the pandemic.
