Chris Cuomo Admits CNN Refused to Adequately Fact-Check the Democratic National Convention
Chris Cuomo has found himself in hot water after admitting his network did not fact-check the Democratic National Convention to the same extent the Republican National Convention was fact-checked. Cuomo’s logic in refusing to fact-check the Democrats is rooted in warped logic. Cuomo insists the Democrats do not lie in the manner that Trump lies. Therefore, according to Cuomo’s logic, the Republicans should be fact-checked more thoroughly than the Democrats.
The Truth is in the Numbers
CNN deserves a modicum of credit for fact-checking the Democratic National Convention. Everyone is well aware of the fact that CNN is a liberal media outlet. However, the left-leaning news station sparingly fact-checked the Democrats during their convention while cheerleading them on in the battle against Trump. The pressing issue is the extent of the fact-checks on each party’s convention. CNN news analyst Chris Cuomo admitted the Republican National Convention was fact-checked at a much higher frequency than the Democratic National Convention.
Why did CNN Perform so few Fact-Checks on the Democrats?
The mere fact that CNN fact-checked the Republicans at a higher frequency than the Democrats proves CNN is biased toward the Democrats. At this point, few people will dispute the notion that CNN leans to the left. According to Cuomo, his network refused to perform frequent or in-depth fact-checks on Joe Biden and other speakers at the Democratic National Convention as the liberals supposedly do not lie as often as Trump and his fellow conservatives. This is clearly an opinion rooted in inherent left-leaning bias as opposed to objective facts.
Cuomo Clearly has a Vendetta Against Trump
When pressed to explain his network’s lack of fact-checks on the Democrats, Cuomo admitted that all politicians lie. However, he insisted on highlighting President Trump’s supposedly egregious number of lies, insisting Trump is a habitual liar. In fact, Cuomo was adamant that no politician has ever lied as much as President Trump.
However, even if President Trump has told a couple half-truths in the past, this is no excuse for a national news network to scrutinize every word that comes out of his mouth. Furthermore, CNN also fact-checked every single speaker at the Republican National Convention. In comparison, the fact-checks on Joe Biden and other speakers at the Democratic National Convention were infrequent and superficial.
It should come as no surprise that Cuomo is losing the ratings battle. As detailed in this Fox News piece, Cuomo’s ratings have suffered a steep decline as America has grown tired of him and his brother, Andrew, pushing a leftist agenda on national television.
