Confirmed: CNN Is Garbage

As if any further confirmation were needed:

Chris Cuomo, host of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, used his media sources to dig up info on his brother, former Governor Andrew Cuomo’s, sexual harassment accusers, according to texts and interview transcripts recently revealed.
Text messages released by New York Attorney General Letitia James show Chris Cuomo had frequent contact with Melissa DeRosa, Andrew Cuomo’s top aide at the time.
In early March, the New York Times reported that the former governor tried kissing a woman, Anna Ruch, without her consent. Three days after this report, Chris Cuomo texted DeRosa, “I have a lead on the wedding girl.”
Other messages indicated Chris Cuomo’s willingness to help with his brother’s response and preparation on the sexual harassment allegations. “Please let me help with the prep,” Cuomo told DeRosa in one text.
In another text, Chris Cuomo sent DeRosa a fully written statement for the governor to use publicly . . .

He was writing objective journalism for his brother, the Democratic politician. What’s beautiful about this is how Letitia James, a black woman, is releasing this information to destroy the white “Boys Club” that has so long controlled the Democratic Party in New York.

The formula by which the Cuomo machine operated involved pandering to women and minorities in order to elect white guys with a “D” beside their names. A key part of this formula was a messaging strategy that relied on accusations of sexism and racism against Republicans. “Vote for us,” said Democrats like Cuomo, “because we care about you.” And of course, the Cuomo machine had the enthusiastic cooperation of the media is promulgating this message, which is where having the governor’s brother as CNN anchor was so convenient.

Such a strategy is ultimately doomed, for the simple reason that eventually women and minorities stop being content with the representation provided by “caring” Democratic white guys, and reach to take power in their own names. Once the Democratic Party no longer functions as a vehicle for the personal ambitions of liberal white guys, the political landscape is permanently altered. Look at the plight of Beto O’Rourke in Texas, for example; he keeps offering himself as the “white savior” of Texas Democrats, but can’t win elections, because the raison d’être of the Texas Democratic party is its anti-white/anti-male ideology: If it’s not about hating white guys, why bother voting at all?

Organizing on the basis of identity politics, as Democrats have done, requires banishing white men from positions of party leadership. Eventually, then, “white Democrat” must become a non-existent category, and Democrats refuse to see where this is leading them.

The riptides that dragged Andrew Cuomo under the waves are now swirling around Chris Cuomo, and he won’t remain afloat much longer.
