The Wuhan virus has had a profound impact on American life.
Millions of Americans have nothing but time to self-reflect while they’re under “shelter in place” orders.
And a CNN host threw his network under the bus in one shocking interview.
CNN host Chris Cuomo is one of the many media personalities reporting from home during this global pandemic.
Cuomo also contracted the coronavirus himself, so he’s been locked down tight.
And it seems his time in quarantine has brought him to some realizations about his job at CNN.
During his show on SiriusXM, Cuomo shockingly said, “I don’t like what I do professionally, I don’t think it’s worth my time.”
The statement was a clear lamentation about his hosting gig at CNN, which has helped him acquire a net worth of allegedly $12 million.
Cuomo also said, “I don’t want to spend my time doing things that I don’t think are valuable enough to me personally. I don’t value indulging irrationality, hyper-partisanship.”
This is a particularly telling statement from Cuomo because CNN bills itself as straight news.
But anyone who watches the network for five minutes knows it’s unabashedly left-wing.
Part of the job Cuomo regrets includes, “talking to Democrats about things that I don’t really believe they mean” and “talking to Republicans about them parroting things they feel they have to say.”
If Cuomo’s rant is genuine, it feels like a glitch in the matrix. He’s saying the things a CNN anchor is not supposed to say.
The narrative is that all Democrats are good and all Republicans are evil and CNN is simply calling balls and strikes.
Perhaps Cuomo’s brush with the coronavirus has awakened him to the propaganda machine he finds himself working for.
This isn’t the first time that the mask has slipped at CNN. Investigating reporters at Project Veritas recorded other personalities at the network admitting they have to report on stories they think are bogus.
Van Jones famously called Russiagate a “nothing-burger.”
Other footage showed reporters being told by CNN president Jeff Zucker to forgo other stories in favor of endless anti-Trump coverage.
Another reason given by Cuomo for his mid-life epiphany is that he doesn’t like being approached by detractors in public.
Cuomo went viral not long ago when he cursed at a Trump supporter who called him ‘Fredo’ –
the dumber, less capable brother in “The Godfather.”
Cuomo went on a profanity-laced tirade about how calling an Italian “Fredo” is tantamount to using the N-word.
He was widely mocked for his ridiculous claim, one of many embarrassing episodes for CNN anchors in recent memory.
There’s always the possibility that Cuomo’s confession is insincere and he’s angling for something bigger, but speaking what people know is true has a lot of power regardless.
