Chris Cuomo left CNN staff shuddering with this shocking confession in a new tell-all interview

Published

Chris Cuomo’s career on cable news tanked along with his brother Andrew’s scandals as New York Governor.

And he evidently hasn’t handled losing access to the “drug” of promised media fame very well.

Now, what Cuomo just revealed in a shocking new tell-all interview has left CNN staff shuddering.

Chris Cuomo went from hosting a primetime show on CNN to hosting a show nobody’s heard of on a network nobody can find.

And he is incredibly bitter about it.

Cuomo was fired after violating journalistic ethics and helping his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, navigate multiple scandals.

For example, Cuomo called reporters on his brother’s behalf to find out when negative stories would break.

Now Cuomo is suing CNN or $60 million.

He sat for a podcast interview with short-lived Trump Comms director Anthony Scaramucci on his show Open Book, and aired his grievances.

In perhaps the most shocking moment, Cuomo expressed just how vengeful he was after his termination.

Cuomo confessed, “I had to accept [my firing] because I was going to kill everybody, including myself. Things can consume you.”

The jaw-dropping revelation was coupled with his admission of going to see a therapist.

Cuomo also admitted that he “makes a lot of mistakes” after he was “sh*t-canned” by the new bosses at CNN.

After former boss Jeff Zucker was terminated for his inappropriate relationship with CNN executive Allison Gollust, new leadership had zero incentive to keep Cuomo around.

Cuomo added, “There is damage that is relatable, there is damage that is unrelatable to people that I have to deal with, that I am working on.”

The “unrelatable” damage would be his tumble from having a number one cable show to having a show that no one watches.

Cuomo said, “At CNN and I wasn’t set up to be [number one]. I wasn’t the big name there, I didn’t have the big team, they didn’t do the advertising about me. But I was still number one. Why? Because it was the best show. Because I was giving people what they needed in that moment.”

Cuomo is using the word “best” very liberally.

But in comparison to his new gig it might be spot on.

His new NewsNation show debuted with a soft 147,000 viewers, and it’s down to a paltry 63,000 nightly viewers, according to the New York Post.

Cuomo said it was “hard to keep perspective on that because it’s kind of embarrassing.”

He added, “I will never be [number one] again.”

Cuomo is clearly not over it, as he freely admitted, saying, “I believe that was taken, I believe wrongly. I will litigate that. I am not going to bitch about it in the press.”

In addition to suing CNN, Cuomo is suing publishers for canceling his book “Deep Denial.”

Maybe Cuomo will be able to forge a comeback. Who knows?

CNN got caught red-handed in the middle of a shameless propaganda tactic

Published

The horrific war in Ukraine wages on.

And the corporate-controlled press continues to lie about what’s happening.

And now CNN has been caught red-handed in the middle of a shameless propaganda tactic.

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukraine has led to hundreds of thousands of deaths, hundreds of billions spent, and massive worldwide disruption.

But Joe Biden and the foreign policy establishment have recklessly prolonged the war instead of looking for an off-ramp.

There was one report that Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy had reached a peace agreement, but former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, on behalf of NATO, pressured Zelenskyy to nix the deal.

The Military Industrial Complex wants another endless war, not a quick end, even though the strategic goal of crippling Russia’s army has already been established.

And the corporate-controlled press is doing its part to prolong the fight with shameless war propaganda.

Instead of reporting on the reality that Ukraine is severely outmanned and is almost entirely reliant on Western funding and soft NATO support, the so-called mainstream media are presenting the fake narrative that the Russians are on the brink of losing outright.

The latest example came from CNN, which had an entire arc on the significance of the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut.

On October 20, 2022, CNN reported that the “significance of the city cannot be overstressed.”

But on March 2, 2023, CNN reported that “Bakhmut’s strategic importance should not be overstated.”

Then on March 26, 2023, CNN reiterated that Bakhmut offered “limited strategic value.”

Finally, on May 20th, 2023, after the Russians had taken the city, CNN reported that Bakhmut’s “symbolism always outweighed its strategic importance.”

This type of absurd war propaganda is not helping Ukrainians, which are dying by the tens of thousands when a peace agreement could be reached.

The neocons would love regime change in Moscow, but they would settle for a protracted conflict that drags on for years.

And the so-called mainstream media are happy to oblige with helping along either.

The one time Biden got clocked really hard by the press was when he pulled out of Afghanistan.

Biden botched the withdrawal, but the fact that he agreed to pull out at all had the media up in arms.

Presidents are not allowed to end wars.

If Biden runs on an endless war in 2024, he will lose.

The American people have lost their appetite.

CNN is in a world of hurt after airing Trump town hall

Published

CNN positioned itself as the Orange Man Bad network.

Then the cable news outlet invited Donald Trump onto the air.

Now CNN is in a world of hurt after airing Trump’s town hall.

Donald Trump gave CNN its best ratings in a long time when he appeared on the network for a town hall hosted by Kaitlan Collins.

CNN easily won the night with 3 million viewers, a rare victory for the network in the primetime slot.

However, the network is experiencing fallout since Trump’s appearance on the network.

CNN has long been mired in third place in the cable news ratings behind Fox News and MSNBC, and they’re trending in the wrong direction.

The week prior to Trump, CNN averaged 494,000 primetime viewers; after Trump, viewership fell to 400,000.

That represents a 23.5% drop in ratings, a huge blow for a network that is already a distant third place.

The likely reason for the sharp drop-off is that CNN conditioned its viewers to hate Trump and disdain anyone who gives him a platform, so it’s no surprise CNN’s well-trained viewers did what they were told.

It also can’t have helped that CNN personalities trashed the network from inside the house.

After the town hall, Anderson Cooper said on his show,  “Many of you have expressed deep anger and disappointment. Many of you are upset that someone who attempted to destroy our democracy was invited to sit on a stage in front of a crowd of Republican voters to answer questions, and predictably, continued to spew lie after lie after lie…I get it. It was disturbing. It was disturbing to see and hear that person refer to a black law enforcement officer as a thug, an adjective he used many times to describe black men and called Kaitlan Collins, the moderator nasty, which is what he calls any woman who stands up to him…You have every right to be outraged today and angry and never watch this network again.”

Oliver Darcy had such an emotional response to Trump’s town hall that he was reportedly called into president Chris Licht’s office and read the riot act.

As for Collins, she was announced as the permanent replacement for Chris Cuomo in primetime despite her lackluster performance as town hall moderator.

CNN likely knows they’ll get those anti-Trump viewers back the closer he gets to winning the GOP primaries, as the Left grows more rabid heading into 2024.

Jake Tapper lost his mind when Elon Musk said one thing about George Soros

Published

The so-called mainstream media defend George Soros to no end.

Criticizing him creates instant backlash.

And Jake Tapper lost his mind when Elon Musk said one thing about George Soros.

Billionaire globalist George Soros has become off-limits.

Simply mentioning his name elicits accusations of antisemitism, which is absurd.

The Left routinely attacked Republican billionaire donor Sheldon Adelson when he was alive.

Soros gets criticized because of his stated ambitions, which include undermining national sovereignty.

Twitter owner Elon Musk recently called out Soros by comparing him to Marvel comics supervillain Magneto.

Musk tweeted, “Soros reminds me of Magneto.”

The make-believe character Magneto and Soros were both Holocaust survivors.

CNN’s Jake Tapper was apparently triggered by Musk’s tweet.

Tapper said on his show that Musk “launched a baseless twitter attack against George Soros, the progressive Jewish philanthropist, who has been the target of antisemitic conspiracy theories.” 

This is absurd because Soros gets attacked for things that he actually says and does.

For instance, Soros bankrolls far-left District Attorneys that downgrade felonies, ignore misdemeanors, and release repeat criminals from prison early.

The pro-crime policies have unsurprisingly led to upticks in crime.

Even Fox News is wary of criticizing Soros.

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich was chastised on the air for mentioning Soros’ funding of socialist DAs.

Later in the CNN segment, Tapper said, “It’s interesting, in terms of how Elon Musk has chosen to run the platform. He’s constantly engaging with people who are bad faith actors, I mean, people who subscribe to QAnon, people who are white supremacists, people who are focused on black-and-white violence, I mean he’s, people who criticize diversity in Hollywood casting, I mean these are choices he’s making.”

That is what passes for “objective” journalism at CNN, and Tapper is considered one of the network’s less incendiary hosts.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the media protects Soros because he’s funding a lot of it.

According to an investigation from the Media Research Center, at least 54 prominent media figures are tied to Soros-funded organizations.

For example, leftist journalist Christiane Amanpour is a senior adviser for the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), which received $2.75 million from Soros between 2018 and 2020 alone.

Soros scratches the media’s back, and they scratch his.
