UNBELIEVABLE … CNN Host Chris Cuomo Says ‘Fake News’ Insult is the ‘Equivalent of the N-word for Journalists’
AS IF THE LIBERAL MSM COULD NOT GET ANY MORE RIDICULOUS AND BE MORE INSULTINGLY WRONG …
So are black Americans going to boycott CNN after this misguided and insulting comment? CNN’s Chris Cuomo said that be believes using the term “fake news” toward the media is the equivalent of the N-words for journalists. WOW. How could anyone be so arrogant and ignorant to make such a ridiculous comment? A note to Chris Cuomo, CNN and the rest of the MSM … the use of the word “fake news” to describe what you people pass as news is NOTHING LIKE THE N-WORD! Is this really what the liberal news thinks of black people? That some how they are in the same boat of racism and bigotry as some because they are being called out for what is bias journalism with a liberal agenda?The smug Cuomo said, you better be right if you are going to charge a journalist with fake news. REALLY? How about the journalist better get the story right and actually do the sourcing before they spew their liberal agenda based reports?
I cant wait for the backlash on these foolish comments and the apology.
CNN host Chris Cuomo said on Thursday that he believes hurling the “fake news” insult at journalists is similar to when people use racial slurs against minorities.
“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,” Cuomo said on SiriusXM.
“That’s what ‘fake news’ is to a journalist,” the CNN host continued. “It’s an ugly insult, and you better be right if you’re going to charge a journalist with lying on purpose.”
UPDATE I: You knew it would not take long for the apology as I am sure the phones and social media lit up at CNN after Chris Cuomo compared Fake news to the N-word. Cuomo could not text fast enough the following apology, ‘I was wrong. Calling a journalist fake -nothing compared to the pain of a racial slur,’ he wrote on Twitter Thursday afternoon. ‘I should not have said it. I apologize.’
