CNN’s Chris Cuomo: ‘Obviously, I’ll Never Be Objective’
CNN is a trash network. If CNN was a legitimate network they would expose Governor Andrew Cuomo’s negligence, which has led to the death of thousands in the state of New York.
More people died in New York than in any other state.

‘Obviously, I’ll never be objective’: Chris Cuomo defends interviews with brother Andrew Cuomo
By Washington Examiner, June 25, 2020
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo admitted that he has not been objective in his interviews with his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
The CNN anchor on Wednesday night pushed back on critics who said he has not been asking tough questions of the governor during his frequent interviews throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
“Obviously, I love you as a brother,” he told the governor. “Obviously, I’ll never be objective. Obviously, I think you’re the best politician in the country. But I hope you feel good about what you did for your people because I know they appreciate it. Nothing’s perfect. You’ll have your critics. But I’ve never seen anything like what you did, and that’s why I’m so happy to have had you on the show.”
The younger Cuomo praised his brother’s coronavirus response in New York, adding that their father, former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, would have been proud of how he handled the pandemic.
“Of course, I won’t always be able to keep having you on this show. It’ll never be seen as fair in people’s eyes, and we both get that, and that’s okay. You’ve got plenty of people to talk to … Not everybody likes you. Not everybody likes me. Everybody seems to like pop now. That’s the benefit of being out for a while. I just hope you recognize what even I’m able to recognize being spawn from the same wolfpack,” he said.
“I hope you are able to appreciate what you did in your state and what it means for the rest of the country now and what it will always mean to those who love and care about you the most. I’m wowed by what you did and, more importantly, I’m wowed by how you did it,” he added.

The governor thanked him for his kind words and fired some back in return after some brotherly ribbing.
“That was sweet. I wonder who wrote it,” he said, later adding, “I did what was right, and you do what is right. You tell the truth. You get up every night, and you tell the truth whether they like it or not. This is the truth the way you see it. And that’s all you can do.”
“He’s my big brother. I love him. Of course, I’m not objective, but let’s call it straight,” the CNN host said after his brother’s exit. “Look at the state. Look at the numbers. Look at New Jersey. Look at Connecticut. Look how they came together. Yeah, he’s my brother. There’s no question, I can cry about it in a second. But the results are there for all to see.”
