Amber Athey is back from vacation and that means y’all get a new episode of “Unfit to Print.”
CNN had perhaps its worst week ever, with its top two anti-Trump anchors getting involved in scandal. Chris Cuomo, the brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, lost his temper upon being compared to Fredo Corleone and threatened to throw a man down the stairs. He later apologized for the incident, but CNN stood firmly behind its anchor, even as he compared “Fredo” to being called the n-word. (RELATED: Chris Cuomo Apologizes After ‘Fredo’ Video Goes Viral)
Also this week, Don Lemon was accused of sexual assault by a bartender, who says the primetime anchor grabbed his genitals and thrust his fingers in the man’s face. Lemon denied the assault, claiming that the accuser’s anti-CNN bias proves that he is lying. Athey explains why she is giving Lemon the benefit of the doubt until more details emerge, even though CNN doesn’t give accused men the same due process.
Meanwhile, The New York Times is having its own issues with left-wing reporters who demand the paper be tougher on President Donald Trump. One staffer got so angry with his colleagues, he felt compelled, in a private meeting, to yell, “we’re not fucking part of the resistance!”
Thanks for watching and we’ll see you next week. In the meantime, check out some previous episodes:
