If this doesn’t work out, Chris Cuomo should really go into comedy. If he can be this funny unintentionally, just imagine how hilarious he could be if he really put his mind to it.
“My schtick is having no schtick,” he said. “I love confrontation. I love friction. And I think that I can be helpful in those moments because I’m not here to hurt anybody. I’m not here to take anybody down.”
I just read through the English translation of ‘L’après-midi d’un faune’ or ‘Afternoon With a Faun’ that Debussy’s ‘Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun’ is based on and it made almost as much sense as that sentence.
Chris Cuomo’s shtick is being shtickless. Also he loves to yell and be helpful because even though he loves confrontation, he’s not here to take anyone down.
I haven’t heard this much self-contradictory nonsense since a Randi Weingarten’s conference explaining why she wants kids in school by keeping them out.
Former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo took swipes at America’s divided “binary” media and pledged to “try very hard to be fair” on his new prime-time talk show on NewsNation that will premiere in the fall.
If he tries half as hard to be fair as he did to his brother, the sky’s the limit.
He said he saw a need for more down-the-middle political coverage during his break from national TV.
This is like Al Capone announcing that he sees a need for more honest accountants.
There’s a need for it, yes. And the brother of the guy who influenced coverage for his governor brother is the worst possible candidate for the job.
After his ouster from CNN, he said he couldn’t go back to the major TV networks, “to what people see as the big game.”
“I don’t think I can make a difference there. I think we need insurgent media. I think we need outlets that aren’t fringe and just trying to fill their pockets,” he said. “I’m going to go where the news is, and I’m going to try very hard to be fair.”
Yes. That’s why he can’t go back to CNN. Because he has too many principles and too little bias.
In the early months of the pandemic, Cuomo interviewed his brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, on his show multiple times. He told Abrams that he felt he was subjected to a “purity test” by the rest of the media during an “emergency.”
“Everything I know about the situation tells me that of course there’s a conflict of interest but people got that,” he said. “Nobody thought I was interviewing my brother the way I was interviewing other people. That wasn’t the point or purpose of those things.”
When asked if he was going to be more transparent on his new show, he replied: “I’d like to say yes, because it’s a good sell. But I’ve always been that way. I really don’t fake the funk.”
Chris Cuomo has always been honest, unbiased and transparent. Especially when he was helping his brother fight charges of sexual harassment.
America needs Chris Cuomo’s funk. I foresee a cable news network with him, Avenatti, Scaramucci and Keith Olbermann.
