Love Gov. Cuomo Resigns
Plagued by breaking sex allegations and the horrendous nursing home death scandal, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced his pending resignation on the air Tuesday. This comes as no surprise, seeing as how Joe Biden had already withdrawn support for Cuomo and New York’s attorney general Letitia James had called upon Cuomo to step aside. His last day in office will be in two weeks. More from Ovation Eddie.
With Cuomo gone, New York’s Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul will step forward, becoming the first woman to lead the state of New York. She has operated on the sidelines under the publicity-craving Cuomo, but now we’ll see whether she can survive New York’s tough-as-nails politics. She’s from Buffalo and formerly served in the U.S. House.
CNN is in crisis as the scandals worsen around Cuomo. CNN host Chris Cuomo, the governor’s brother, played a key role behind the scenes, urging the governor to fight and deny the many allegations. Obviously, Chris Cuomo’s involvement violated most journalistic standards. As a result, many media outlets, even those on the left, have been pulling away and trying to separate themselves from CNN. The end result could eventually be the collapse of the troubled network. More from Steve Turley.
