CNN’s Chris Cuomo Under Fire – Apologizes After Saying ‘Fake News’ Label Is as Bad as N-Word

CNN’s Chris Cuomo had an interview on Sirius XM’s ‘POTUS’ on Thursday where he compared the ‘fake news’ label to a racial slur. He apologized later on Twitter after getting excoriated.

Business Insider reports:

“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 on SiriusXM.

“That’s what ‘fake news’ is to a journalist,” the CNN host continued. “It’s an ugly insult, and you better be right if you’re going to charge a journalist with lying on purpose.”

Americans are fed up with the nonstop lies coming from the mainstream media. If the anchors at CNN don’t like being accused of being fake news, perhaps they should report the truth. They can dish it out, but they can’t take it! Imagine the backlash a conservative from Fox News would have received if they said the same thing Chris Cuomo did.

Here he is walking back his ridiculous statements…
