CNN Reinstates the Ban on Fredo Cuomo Covering Sonny Cuomo, Reversing Its Previous "Suspending" of the Same Ban

So first, Fredo was not allowed to cover his mafia don brother Sonny, because that's an obvious conflict of interest.

Then, because Sonny was being used by the left as a political weapon against Trump, CNN suspended that rule, because, let's face it, no one on CNN was going to cover Sonny any less affectionately than his own brother. It's not like Fake Jake Tapper was going to ask about the nursing home murders.


Now that Democrats are talking about impeaching Sonny, CNN says the ban's back on.

This isn't done for purposes of journalistic hygeine.

This is to provide Fredo with an excuse for not covering his brothers' mass-killings or the current FBI investigation into them.

CNN claimed Wednesday that it has reinstated a "rule" that prevents Chris Cuomo from "interviewing or covering his brother" -- after the host completely ignored the nursing home death cover-up scandal engulfing Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Last year, Chris Cuomo repeatedly interviewed his older brother about the coronavirus pandemic, engaging in often-cringey banter that initially helped boost the ratings for the 9 p.m. "Cuomo Prime Time."

But the controversy over the Cuomo administration's admitted cover-up of nursing home death numbers -- exclusively revealed by The Post last week --hasn't been mentioned on Chris’ hour-long show.

...

In a prepared statement, a CNN spokesperson said, "The early months of the pandemic crisis were an extraordinary time. We felt that Chris speaking with his brother about the challenges of what millions of American families were struggling with was of significant human interest."

"As a result, we made an exception to a rule that we have had in place since 2013 which prevents Chris from interviewing and covering his brother, and that rule remains in place today. CNN has covered the news surrounding Governor Cuomo extensively," the statement added.

The network didn't respond to a question asking when Gov. Cuomo was again banned from his brother's show.

This is all Integrity Theater. The rest of CNN covered up this story until this week, and only began covering it because the Democrat Party they all belong to gave them permission to cover it, by talking about impeaching Cuomo.

And even since they started "covering" it, it's still very soft coverage, considering we're talking about the calculated murder of thousands.

But they can't cover it too much -- three other Democrat governors also made the murderous decision to seed the nursing homes with covid: Murphy of NJ, Wolfe of Pennsylvania, and the Witch of Michigan.

And they can't cover it too much because it would lead to uncomfortable questions that CNN doesn't want to answer, like: What stopped you from covering this story for the entire past year (well, since March 25, 2020), apart from, 1, campaigning for a Democrat win in November and 2, not having yet gotten permission from the Democrat Party that you serve to cover it?
