    CNN, meanwhile, trailed far behind both of its news competitors, ranking 13th in primetime and 7th in total day. In primetime, CNN lost to HGTV, Investigation Discovery, the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, and the Food Network. The Anderson Cooper and Chris Cuomo-led lineup earned them just 914,000 average primetime viewers.

    CNN host Chris Cuomo and Virginia Senate candidate Corey Stewart (R) sparred Wednesday night in a heated interview that focused on Stewart’s affiliation with white nationalists. Stewart appeared on “Cuomo Prime Time” one day after he secured the Republican nomination to challenge Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) in November's midterm election. The two men frequently shouted over each other in the interview, with Cuomo repeatedly calling out Stewart’s refusal to condemn white nationalists. “Don’t blame me for being extreme left. Or being some antifa fool," Cuomo said. "It’s your attempt to deny the facts." “This is the biggest joke I’ve heard...

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that she doesn't regret commenting about the president's involvement in crafting a statement about a 2016 Trump Tower meeting. CNN's Chris Cuomo pressed Sanders repeatedly over her statement last August that President Trump didn't dictate the statement, even though his lawyers recently acknowledged he did. Sanders continued to deflect new inquiries about the matter, prompting questions about her credibility. “I’m very comfortable with my credibility, and the fact that by sitting here right now shows the type of person I am, shows my effort to provide information, and frankly to be...
  • TX School Shooter’s Use of Low-Tech Weapons Frustrates Chris Cuomo

    Why couldn’t the Santa Fe, TX school shooter have used an AR-15? A large magazine? Or at least a bump stock? That would have made it easier to call for more gun control. That was the subtext of Chris Cuomo’s lament on CNN this morning. Cuomo said that the shooting, “doesn’t set up great for the gun debate.” Cuomo was presumably referring to the fact that the two weapons used by the shooter were a .38 revolver and a shotgun. Instead of being high-tech “assault weapons,” they are both based on 19th-century technology, dating back almost 200 years old in...

    This is right up there with the congressman worrying that stationing Marines on Guam could cause the island to tip over and capsize . . . On CNN this morning, Chris Cuomo expressed the concern that under a denuclearization deal with North Korea, the NORK nukes might be sent to . . . Pakistan. Panelists Jon Avlon and Gordon Chang talked poor Chris in off the ledge, assuring him that wouldn’t happen.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Stormy Daniels has Michael Avenatti. Maybe Kate Steinle’s killer—Jose Garcia Zarate—should hire Chris Cuomo to run PR for him. On CNN this morning, Cuomo claimed: “The facts of it. He was not–the idea of what he was painted as: there is a monster in our midst, and there are so many just like him. The facts don’t line up on it. And it’s always been a gross abuse of the situation.” Poor Jose. Think of him not as a killer, but as a victim. Of “gross abuse.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Michael Avenatti blew off a scheduled appearance on CNN this morning. Did Stormy Daniels’ lawyer know he was going to be subjected to some unexpectedly pointed questioning?

And he’s got a lot of explaining to do.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    So now who’s the liar? Advice to Chris Cuomo: if to suit your political purposes you’re going to misrepresent what someone said, don’t do so when there’s clear video evidence of the person saying something entirely different. On CNN this morning, Cuomo falsely claimed that in his interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC yesterday, Rudy Giuliani said that he wouldn’t advise President Trump to sit down with Robert Mueller because Trump “could well lie.” But as the clip from the Stephanopoulos makes clear, Rudy was, in fact, concerned that James Comey might lie, and that his perjured testimony could be...

    If Chris Cuomo had been around during WWII, would he have been telling FDR and Churchill that they needed to disclose their D-Day plans? Maybe so, judging by Cuomo’s absurd questioning of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu on CNN this morning. Cuomo suggested to Netanyahu that Israel needs to “come clean” and be “honest” about its nuclear weapons capabilities if it expects Iran to do the same. [snip] But the bigger point is that Israel is effectively at war with Iran and other countries in the Middle East. It is a tiny nation surrounded by hostile powers. Why would Israel, why...

    The single biggest threat to the future of the Dem party would be if African-Americans abandoned their overwhelming support for Dem candidates. It’s bad enough, from the Dem perspective, that under President Trump black unemployment has hit record lows. Now comes a major black celebrity openly embracing Trump. He must be destroyed!And so it was that on CNN this morning, Chris Cuomo did his best to undermine Kanye West and his support for the President. Cuomo first depicted West’s endorsement as a publicity stunt by a celebrity “desperate for attention.” Cuomo then took things an ugly step further, suggesting that...

    The CNN crew had a jolly old time this morning, mocking President Trump for his penchant for using his cellphone, and analogizing him to a recalcitrant teenage girl. Chris Cuomo led the charge, advising chief of staff John Kelly to say to Trump: “Look, we let you use this phone. It’s a privilege. It’s not a right. And if you don’t use it the right way, we’re going to take it from you.” Added Alisyn Camerota, “and you’re going to be grounded.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Mocking Trump Spelling Mistake, Chris Cuomo Makes One Himself

    Friendly advice to Chris Cuomo: when mocking President Trump over a spelling mistake, try to avoid making a mistake yourself . . . On CNN this morning, Cuomo went out of his way to note that in a tweet about James Comey, the prez misspelled “shady” as “shadey.” Continued Cuomo: “unless [Trump was] maybe referring to Slim Shadey, the alternate persona of Eminem.” Here’s the problem, Chris: Eminem spells it Slim Shady. Not Slim Shadey. Ruh-roh! Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Chris Cuomo of CNN, commenting this morning on the disclosure that Sean Hannity has received some legal advice from Michael Cohen, pontificates: "If you are on television, and you have an audience, and you represent a news organization, you have a duty to disclose things that sniff of conflict. The conflict bar is very low . . . You're supposed to say things protectively, even if they're not necessary." Yet Cuomo very rarely mentions that his brother Andrew, Governor of New York, is a potential presidential candidate, ranked in the top ten contenders. Chris might assume that the whole world...

    In a million years, would Chris Cuomo have used such vulgar language when referring, say, to Hillary Clinton or President Obama? On CNN this morning, responding to a mention that Michael Cohen had been “incredibly respectful” of the process by which his home and offices had been searched, Cuomo said: “You’re going to be a little more civil when it’s your ass on the line. It’s easy for the President to be long and strong now. I’m sure that if he gets closer to doing an interview with Mueller, he won’t be beating up on Mueller the same way. I...

    Who you gonna believe: the Daily Caller, founded by Tucker Carlson, or CNN’s Chris Cuomo? Because one or the other has things seriously wrong when it comes to the political affiliations of the lawyers on Robert Mueller’s investigative team. On CNN this morning, Cuomo claimed: “Mueller’s team has some type of breakdown of Democrat and Republican. It’s about 50/50.” But a study conducted by the Daily Caller Foundation came to a strikingly different conclusion. As the headline of the article reporting on the study reads, “Not A Single Lawyer Known To Work For Mueller Is A Republican.” Get the rest...

    Chris Cuomo has mockingly bestowed a new moniker on Trey Gowdy: “Captain Benghazi.” On CNN this morning, Cuomo suggested that whereas Gowdy went after the Benghazi inquiry “with such an aggression,” he has been lackadaisical in looking into allegations of misconduct against EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. Cuomo: “Wasn’t there a big [makes yawning motion] for Captain Benghazi? They went after that with such an aggression, right? And here he says, I don’t like these kind of allegations, but then, they’ve had a month to get documentation from Pruitt. They haven’t gotten it.” Get the rest of the story and view...

    Slip of the tongue — or worshipful attitude toward an influential in-house player? We’re going with “b,” and in all seriousness, it clearly was just a stumble of speech. But on CNN this morning, Jeffrey Toobin did call Chris Cuomo “Christ.” Toobin explained that he had somehow combined “Chris” with “correct” in response to a statement Cuomo had made. The panel had a good chuckle at Toobin’s expense. Alisyn Camerota said, “your logic was that good.” Added John Avlon, “it is the season.” Cuomo also made a couple comments, but I couldn’t decipher them. Perhaps a reader with acute hearing...

    Remember how the liberal media mercilessly mocked President Obama for his numerous gaffes? From 57 states, to the “Austrian” language, to corpse-man and many others, the MSM was relentless in pointing out Obama’s mistakes. Oh, wait: no. The MSM buried those Obama bloopers. But let President Trump misspell a couple of words, and watch out! The liberal media is all over it. Thus CNN this morning repeatedly raised the fact that in a recent tweet, Trump misspelled “counsel” as “council” and “whether” as “wether.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    It came at the very end of a long segment on the firing of Andrew McCabe. Maybe it should have come at the beginning . . . On CNN this morning, after a protracted discussion of the firing of Andrew McCabe, and just before going to break, Chris Cuomo let slip what might be the seminal fact in this matter. As Cuomo put it: “The best thing going for the President on this one is that the IG was an Obama appointee, and this was his report.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    On CNN today, Maggie Haberman of the New York Times argued that women in the Trump administration, particularly Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kellyanne Conway, are unfairly subjected to more criticism than their male counterparts. Alisyn Camerota seconded Haberman’s notion. Chris Cuomo initially pushed back a bit, but ultimately joined the party, saying: “The lookism stuff. Saturday Night Live, when they first went after Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and it was about how she looked and how she dresses. It was obnoxious. And that happens to Kellyanne all the time when she goes on. That’s wrong too. No question about it.” Get...
