Gov. Cuomo refuses to come on State of the Union with Jake Tapper

CNN anchor Jake Tapper said on Sunday’s State of the Union program that he has requested an interview with embattled New York Governor Andrew Cuomo dozens of times over the past year, in addition to this week — all of which the Governor has refused.

Janice Dean, a Fox News meteorologist whose in-laws died as a result of Gov. Cuomo’s executive order, praised Tapper. “While it’s easy to get angry at other networks for not taking [Cuomo] to task early on during the nursing home tragedy, there are some that DID report on his deadly executive order and his incredible arrogance. [Tapper] is one of them.”

Dean added, “While I cannot say the same for many of his other colleagues, [Tapper] has reported fairly and without fear or fluff when it comes to covering [Cuomo].”

The Cuomo administration withheld the information from state lawmakers over the summer because it was worried federal prosecutors would “use it against us,” according to a top aide for Gov. Cuomo, the New York Post reported this week.

As I repeatedly documented at the time, Gov. Cuomo preferred the safe space on CNN — his brother Chris Cuomo’s nightly program, Cuomo Prime Time.

  1. Surely Tapper must believe himself to be objective while spouting fabrications and lies concerning Trump. The only reason Tapper is discussing Cuomo is because he has , through his orders, sentenced to death 15,000 people in not following the science. Cuomo must be held criminally accountable for intentionally hiding the truth from the public square and lying to protect himself. None should defend his actions considering the human cost and tragedy and his self promotion on his Bro program blaming Trump
