Chris “The Ken Doll Of News” Cuomo doesn’t like being called a “fake newsman“:
“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.”
For startes, Mr. Como – no. It’s not the same as the N-word. The N-word is bestowed for no more reason than someone’s skin color.
“Fake News” is earned. It’s earned by putting agenda before fact. As the mainstream media has been making a habit of doing, and justifying doing, for decades, but more lately than ever.
