Yeah, while I can understand wanting to help your brother out, this was bad.

Cuomo has been suspended indefinitely from CNN. I imagine he’ll be outright fired as soon as their internal investigation is complete. Good riddance.

Of course, if this was Foxnews, Cuomo would be taking a “pre-planned vacation” about now.

If this was FOX News and Andrew Cuomo was a Republican, they'd be asking why the liberal media hates family so much.

Most likely. CNN is definitely doing the right thing in this case (which Fox never does).

What happened to Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly?

Ailes denied, denied, denied for 20+ years until the evidence and accusers were so stacked against him and then he resigned with a $65 million payout from Fox.

O’Reilly continuously counter-sued his accusers and paid them off. 13 years after the first sexual harassment allegation he ended up being dropped from his talent agency. O’Reilly and Fox paid off 5 accusers before he took a vacation and didn’t return.

There’s not much to brag about when it takes literal decades for Fox to do the right thing

Or to put it in health insurance terms:
  • Health insurance company A approves coverage of a procedure that is sufficiently established and will highly likely to dramatically improve the outcome for the patient.
  • Health insurance company B denies coverage, calls the procedure "experimental", obfuscates the issue at every turn but eventually acquiesces (perhaps after the original patient has died) because they are seeking to avoid painful and expensive litigation they are likely to lose.

Exactly. It's laughable to say that FOX did the right thing in those situations, they didn't and they never do.

I seem to remember a frequent guest of Fox News shows who was actually caught on tape bragging about how he groped women without permission. But I'm sure after that was exposed, Fox News didn't bring him back on the air, or promote his career in any way, did they?

And approved by more than half of the Senate.

We must all remember this is about more than just one man, it's the way a lot of people want the country to be run.

Your periodic reminder that prominent conservative voices are batshit insane:

^ I don’t even get that. Is she saying QR codes were invented during COVID? And they’re, what, stealing our information? Covertly giving us COVID through osmosis?

She’s worried that you will be tracked when using a QR code, all while posting that on her mobile phone.

Oh, of course. Well, since they all outsmarted Bill Gates and his nanobots, the Government has to try a new approach. Candy ain’t falling for it!
