One of the MSM's biggest hypocrites, who has been poisoning minds with his disingenuous moral high ground, targeting President Trump with frequent wild speculation that intentionally encourages his viewers to hate Trump with increasing veracity, exposes who he really is with this outburst.
A couple things to note:
1. The person who called Chris Cuomo "Fredo" apparently one time, remains calm while Cuomo goes into a rage............that escalates as the other person remains calm. Finally, Cuomo, the aggressor the entire time tries to turn it into a physical confrontation that is unprovoked by the other person up until that point, other than that guy saying that he thought Fredo was his name.
2. Cuomo insists that using the word Fredo to him, is like use the N word for a black person. Fortunately, thanks to the media he makes a living selling his crap on, we have 2 instances where the term came up, which contradicts him.
First one on his show earlier this year is when a guest refers to Don Trump junior as Fredo. Apparently it was ok with him then.
2nd one is when he actually refers to himself as Fredo.
There is no denying that Trump is a mean person, who doesn't hide his meanness, which makes me very uncomfortable and is sad for the highest office of the land.
However, Chris Cuomo pretends to be something he is not with his moral high ground crapola, attacking the president by using HATE and meanness and lies.
This reaction by Chris Cuomo 2 days ago did nothing wrong. He just lost his temper and tried to get into a fight over being called a name. What it did do is expose his true personality. I worked on television for 11 years and have told many stories about people that I worked with who were like Dr. Jeckel and Mr. Hydes...............when the red light/camera was on, they were one person, when it was off...........somebody completely different(the real them). Almost all of them were good people. Some were not.
I've always known this about Cuomo. Good people don't use his methods to deliver hateful, political activist messages as propaganda to smear the person they hate with a passion.....day after day for years.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Another example on CNBC of somebody doing the exact same thing..............pretending to fight hate and lies.............by generating hate and using lies.
And selling it by abusing their jobs, misrepresenting themselves as so called objective, professional journalists when they are political activists trying to impose their belief system and personal hate for another individual on millions of viewers.
This guy should be fired.
And yet the network has stated they fully support him on this. The epitome of hypocrisy.
"But Cuomo is being disingenuous at best when he says that Fredo is an insult that’s equivalent to the n-word. (In a statement of support for Cuomo, CNN also characterized the name as an “ethnic slur.”) The latter term has a lengthy and well-trod history as a racist insult, an unambiguous pejorative against black people when used by non-black people. The former is a reference to a pop cultural character from books published in the 1960s and movie adaptations produced the following decade. One is a degrading slur meant to dehumanize the target; the other is a metaphor with unflattering connotations: that the target bears a similarity to a character infamous for his lack of integrity."
Cuomo plays the race card and the victim, then CNN supports him.
It really would be no big deal if he was just your average news guy that tells the objective news as a professional that lost his cool.
But that isn't him. His mission is to convince his viewers that Trump is causing all this divisive hate to grow........and that's why we should hate Trump. I've watched him a lot. He seems to have more hate and anger than any other news person. This recent rage that he displayed, defines who he is.
In order for this country to start healing, instead of getting worse, we need to get rid of some of the top hate messengers, like Chris Cuomo.
"The only thing that's bothersome about it, is that 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 in 2017.
