CNN’s Stelter: We Covered Cuomo Story ‘Just the Same We Would Any Other Story’
Breitbart ^ | 08/10/2021 | Ian Hanchett

Posted on 08/11/2021 6:21:28 AM PDT by ChicagoConservative27

On Tuesday’s broadcast of CBS’ “Late Show,” CNN Chief Media Correspondent and host Brian Stelter said CNN covered the scandal around New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) “just the same we would any other story.” And “Ultimately, isn’t that what matters?”

Stelter acknowledged that CNN telling Chris Cuomo he couldn’t cover his brother once Gov. Cuomo got into trouble after letting Chris Cuomo interview his brother earlier is “an odd conflict. But I don’t think if we open the journalism ethics book, there’s no page for this. … This was definitely awkward for CNN, though.”

I was wondering about this. Happy that Brian Stelter offered his observations. He really is the voice of authority and reason. We are lucky to have him.

Stelter is like a lot of libs . I’ve theorized that they really believe their BS. Not overly bright, they see everything through the lib lense. In other words, stupid, not necessarily dishonest. I can’t think that about Stelter any more. Nobody who actually had an honest intent to state the facts could assert that the Cuomo story was covered just like any other story

Nobody at CNN is a real journalist, so the "journalism ethics book" is no more relevant to their operation than a medical school textbook on neurosurgery.

This may be the closest Stelter’s ever got to the truth. Yes!...........the “same way” meaning biased, slanted and typically with outright lying sprinkled in for seasoning.

You underestimate the power of stupidity.

They hired Stelter because he wasn't smart enough to question the official story.

Also, he can rationalize anything that conflicts with the official version as "right-wing propaganda."

Well, I, for one, welcome this refreshing breath of honesty.

They DID cover this as they would any other story...with leftist bias, lying, obfuscation, misdirection, and of course, blaming Trump.

You have to understand how these mouth-breathers talk. Once you crack the code, it makes a lot of sense.

Since Chris Cuomo is the brother of a disgraced, former Dim governor, his value has dropped to zero and his days at CNN are numbered.

I always thought Cuomo was a tough guy.
But he’s a wimp just like Spitzer and Franken.

Wouldn’t even hang in there for the impeachment and conviction vote (which I believe he would have skated in the Senate).

“just the same we would any other story.” That is the only true statement he made. Biased, Fake News, all the way..”We serve ourselves, just watch us for us!”
