(ConservativeInsider.org) – Mainstream media outlets tend to protect their own at all costs. However, CNN’s Editor-at-Large Chris Cillizza came up for a breath of fresh air last week when he acknowledged New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) was actually “less stellar” than the press advertised with his response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A recent report by the New York State Office of the Attorney General Letitia James revealed the number of nursing home COVID-19 deaths in the state was vastly underreported. Multiple policies pushed by Cuomo may have turned deadly by forcing nursing homes to take in COVID-positive patients.
On top of this, the New York State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker tried to smooth over the story by saying the state simply counted the numbers differently than others. Rather than own up to their own mistakes, Cuomo and his buddies are hoping to keep their power over the people of New York, even if it means skewing a few stats. Hopefully, the press will continue to take note of what’s really going on.
