On Monday, Cuomo and fellow CNN host Anderson Cooper were chatting during the transition from “Anderson Cooper 360” to “Cuomo Prime Time” when Cuomo made a major admission about his journalistic integrity.
“For people like us,” Cuomo said, “we do the job based on who’s in power.”
Cuomo is allegedly an objective news analyst. He isn’t, or at least, isn’t supposed to be an opinion journalist.
According to Breitbart, Cooper finished his show by discussing Republican Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma, who said last week he would “step in” if presumptive president-elect Joe Biden didn’t receive intelligence briefings by Friday.
Friday came and went without Biden receiving the briefings. Lankford took to Newsmax TV, claiming the media twisted what he meant by “step in.”
In an apparent dig at Fox News, Cuomo told Cooper, “State TV’s got some new competition.”
It’s true that Fox News has seen a significant drop in viewership since the election, which many viewers think the network covered poorly. Instead, many conservatives are turning to alternative outlets like Newsmax.
