The media would like you to focus on the fact that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has mounting claims of sexual harassment against him, but if you think that’s the media finally doing its job as it covers the scandals and wrongdoings of a Democrat, then you’d be sadly mistaken.
In truth, this is the media attempting to distract the American people from something Cuomo did that was far worse than inappropriately hitting on some women. Just to remind you, Cuomo’s policies during the COVID-19 lockdowns included putting elderly New Yorkers infected with the virus into unsecured nursing homes, spreading the virus to other elderly people, resulting in 15,000 deaths. Cuomo’s administration then lied to authorities (and New Yorkers) about what the real death count was in order to save Cuomo’s glowing COVID-19 era reputation.
As I covered in more detail previously, the media driving attention to Cuomo’s sexual harassment allegations is a distraction from this single story.
Now we have numbers to see just how much time the media is dedicating to this atrocity, and all things considered, it’s pretty disgusting. According to the Media Research Center, a grand total of 15 minutes over the course of ten months has been used to talk about Cuomo’s death count. Outside of these short bursts, the media can’t be bothered about the deaths of thousands:
From the first network evening news mention of Cuomo’s nursing home scandal nearly ten months ago (on the May 11, 2020 NBC Nightly News) through Sunday night, the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts have devoted a mere 15 minutes, 35 seconds to the story — most of which came after the January 28, 2021 report by the state’s Attorney General, Letitia James, charging that the Cuomo administration vastly under-reported nursing home deaths.
In contrast, in just the past 11 days those same broadcasts have devoted almost three times as much coverage — 44 minutes, 14 seconds — on allegations from several women that Cuomo sexually harassed them in recent years.
Trump Jr.: Media protected ‘groper-in-chief’ Cuomo because he ‘was willing to speak poorly about my father’
Trump’s eldest son told “Hannity” that the media gave the Democrat a “pass” over his controversial nursing home directive that led to thousands of deaths in the state’s senior care facilies, choosing to focus instead on the mounting allegations of sexual assault against the governor.
TRUMP JR.: This [the nursing home scandal] is probably the bigger scandal, although it seems like perhaps the Democrats are sweeping that under the rug in lieu now of the accusations against our groper-in-chief as governor of New York.
This kind of stuff is disgusting, Sean. It has gone on too long. The Democrats get a pass. They only go towards Democrats. If there was a Republican in this situation, whether it was one scandal, both scandals, a fraction of the scandal, this would have been over a long time ago.
