Mainstream media blasted for ‘blatant hypocrisy’ after ignoring sexual harassment allegations against Cuomo

'Silence from the liberal media after the allegations against Cuomo came out was deafening as ABC, CBS, CNN, and MSNBC all ignored it,' Nicholas Fondacaro said​

The mainstream media appears to be giving cover to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo by not covering sexual harassment allegations leveled against him by former administration aide Lindsey Boylan as CNN, MSNBC, ABC’s "World News Tonight," CBS’ "Evening News" and NBC’s "Nightly News" all skipped the bombshell on Wednesday.

Boylan came forward on Wednesday with explosive claims against the already-embattled Democrat, saying Gov. Cuomo asked her to play "strip poker," made a lewd reference to Bill Clinton’s infamous use of cigars, touched her lower back, kissed her on the lips and made her generally uncomfortable.

"Very simple game to play here: Let’s say Governor DeSantis, the Republican governor of Florida that the national media has a particular focus on and invariably not in a positive light. Would CNN ignore such an allegation? Would ABC, CBS, NBC? Would the soapboxes and the pious lectures be given the day off? It’s rhetorical Thursday, so no need to answer that," The Hill media columnist and Fox News contributor Joe Concha said.

Many Democrats and liberal media pundits trumpeted the "believe women" mantra in the rise of the #MeToo movement in 2017, but Tara Reade’s 2020 assault claim, which was initially sparsely covered, against then-candidate Joe Biden showed some claims were taken more seriously than others.

Cuomo's office denied Boylan's harassment claims, calling them "simply false" and insisting the strip poker comment "did not happen," but the mainstream media didn’t even bother to report the news from the angle that the governor denied the allegations.

Media Research Center news analyst Nicholas Fondacaro called the coverage blackout an example of "blatant hypocrisy" by the mainstream media.....
