Chris Cuomo: ‘I see being called fake news as the equivalent of the n-word for journalists’ (Updated)

Chris Cuomo: ‘I see being called fake news as the equivalent of the n-word for journalists’ (Updated)

Yeah, no

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo just took “tone deaf” to a new dimension during a SiriusXM Radio interview Thursday.

“The only thing that’s bothersome about it, is that I see being called ‘fake news’ as the equivalent of the n-word for journalists, the equivalent of calling an Italian any of the ugly words that people have for that ethnicity. That’s what fake news is to a journalist,” said Chris Cuomo on SiriusXM POTUS (Ch. 124) Thursday.

“It is an ugly insult and you better be right if you’re going to charge a journalist with lying on purpose and the president was not right here and he has not been right in the past.”

Let’s not forget that the “fake news” label was created as a blame shifting mechanism to explain away Hillary’s embarassing electoral loss to Trump. Little did the leftist know how badly it would backfire.

Being publicly chastised for peddling lies and misinformation is not remotely in the same universe as being the recipient of a racial slur. But far be it from the press to egnage in introspection or even consider there’s some validity to the “fake news” complaints.

Establishment media isn’t providing rightly critical reporting, they’ve outright attacked and succumbed to confirmation bias. Until they can find the equalibrium where they’re a check on power as opposed to an ideological attack machine, they deserve every bit of flack they’re getting.

Just how bad is the fake new epidemic? T. Becket Adams at the Washington Examiner is keeping a list that begins with Trump’s innauguration. It’s depressingly long.

… the president was not right here and he has not been right in the past

A nice little bit of “fake news” right there.

“. . . that I see being called ‘fake news’ as the equivalent of the n-word for journalists . . .”

Wow. Just wow.

Only in the mind of leftists can the water-carriers for Big Government,journalists so-called, can victims too.

And like leftist “victims” everywhere, it simply means that the truth has finally caught them.

    Isn’t Cuomo “appropriating” that argument
    prima facie evidence of the Left’s own racism?

No more “journalists” than they are it shouldn’t bother them.

So what I heard was…tap that “MSM fake news” button like it’s the laser gun for the 1980’s Asteroids video game.

Excuse me. I’m gonna go and get some more quarters.

These dumb fake newsers are ruining this country!

Good, Chris.

You said it, not us.

And if you don’t shop at Nordstrom’s, you’re the “n-word” of shoppers.

Don’t shop at Nordstroms.

Poor Cuomo. Nothing a little Midol wouldn’t help though.

The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

If they stop telling lies we will stop calling them ‘fake news’. It’s a choice.

ON the other hand, a black person cannot choose to stop being black. Except Michael Jackson.

So now he gets to be a crybully / snowflake. He can accuse Trump of “fake news” but Trump can’t return the favor?

CNN doesn’t need to be at press briefings any more.

it’s almost comical, by saying “it’s like the N-word”, he’s attempting to convince us that it is absolutely morally reprehensible and deplorable to ever say that about anything he says, and you are some of kind of knuckle dragging nazi skinhead if you ever question anything he or his brethren say ex cathedra.

    Correct.
    After his little diatribe, you half expect him to break out the “Nyuck Nyuck Nyucks.”

“Poor Cuomo. Nothing a little Midol wouldn’t help though.”
No, I think massive doses of thorazine would be needed. 🙂

CNN is Manning the Maginot line of Fake News pill boxes.

i put a cherry on top of his butthurt sundae

“Calling a journalist fake -nothing compared to the pain of a racial slur.”

This is where the left has taken us—-NOTHING is worse that a racial slur.

    ….Cause the Leftists are the all time worst racists…….. in all history!

Enslave Chris Cuomo and put him to manual labor. Ask him in 30 years if “fake news” is comparable to what he was now enjoying.

I see people…I see nepotism ….I see my father…….I see Luke Russert…Doocy’s kid….Mika….Chelsea…Gloria Vanderbilt’s kid….

Even Salon (!) has pointed this stuff out.

It’s not as if these relatives of prominent journalists got their gigs as the result of a nationwide search— they got them because of good old fashioned Good Ole Boy stuff.

Nincompoop? To the quick!

Fake news websites (also referred to as hoax news) deliberately publish hoaxes, propaganda, and disinformation purporting to be real news — often using social media to drive web traffic and amplify their effect.

    I love the word “deliberately” there. It’s the weasel word.

    Sure, CNN publishes stories that turn out to be false or at least unsubstantiated. Sure, they use social media to drive web traffic. But they’re not doing it *deliberately*. How *dare* you call their news fake if you can’t prove what’s in their hearts, you hateful bigot you?

Aww, that’s adorable, look he’s pretending he’s a real journalist for a real news organization.

As an Italian-American myself, I am qualified to point out that this guy sounds like a spoiled brat and a whining Mama’s boy.

I feel sorry for his wife.

Let’s assume for a minute the obvious stupidity of the comparison is not there.

Where is he going with this?

So, if like the n-word, it is appalling to call someone that word, then wouldn’t calling anyone fake news be bad, including y’know fake news?

Can fake newsies call each other fake news since they are in the targeted demographic?

Get used to it, snowflake!
