Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, December 04, 2021

CNN said Saturday that anchor Chris Cuomo has been "terminated" by the network, "effective immediately." The announcement came after an outside law firm was retained to review information about exactly how Cuomo aided his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, when the then-governor was accused of sexual harassment. ... With information in the texts and documents pointing to a serious breach of CNN standards, Cuomo was notified of his termination on Saturday.

This is a shame because Chris Cuomo's show was one of the better ones on primetime cable news. But CNN, unlike Fox News, is a media outlet with professional standards. If Cuomo was found to have broken them to help his brother manage his PR disaster over sexual harassment, he should've been punished for it.

Anyone who thinks Tucker Carlson should still be on the air should probably sit this one out.

IOW : My Tribe, My Tribe, My Tribe ....

Anyone watching FoxNews or CNN is pretty much brainwashed, and should sit this one out.

Brian Williams is about to leave a chair open at MSNBC if the network wants another sardonic white newsman to rehabilitate.

They might as well hire John Stewart.

@#8 ... Brian Williams is about to leave a chair open at MSNBC ...

Mr Williams apparently really wanted that 7PM slot.

It's also lazy.

Lazy it isn't.

The alias seems to work very hard at what it does.

Back in a prior life when i used to run a message board, I would call that alias' behavior that of a troll.

It's not easy being a troll. It is real work. You have to know and understand the hot spots of a message board. And tht's just the beginning.

We should be congratulating that alias for working so hard to try to illicit replies to its trolling. :)

Once again I give credit to RCade to the openness of his august message board and the wide, ummm, range, yeah, let's call it that, range of alias' opinions he provides a forum for.

Good. HE WAS DIRTY.
Can't wait for Fox to do the same to Judge Jeanine Pirdrunko and Tucker Carlson.
Any minute now.

That is a delusional take. Those interviews with his brother during peak Covid NEVER would have happened at any news outlet with a modicum of professional standards.

The only thing that differentiated Cuomo's show from similar programing on the right is a more elevated level of factualness. Otherwise, Cuomo was simply a source for more hyper-partisan spin.
