Fox News star Janice Dean criticized CNN for giving Cuomo a free pass on his nursing home controversy and when a CNN anchor tried to respond she torched him.

According to The Daily Wire:

On Monday, Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean, whose husband tragically lost both his parents to COVID-19, slammed CNN for a nine-minute interview with New York governor Andrew Cuomo in which they never asked him about the state’s prior policy on returning nursing home residents to their homes even if they had the virus.


In mid-May, Dean targeted the mainstream media for its non-coverage of Cuomo’s nursing home policy, saying it should be “one of the biggest” stories of the year. She asserted, “I have not seen the coverage of this … Twenty percent of our lost loved ones are from nursing homes … because Governor Cuomo and several other governors forced COVID-recovering patients into nursing homes.”

Dean ripped CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, Andrew Cuomo’s brother for an interview in which he never brought up the issue, instead trying to be funny by using a giant cotton swab to make fun of this brother’s nose. Dean said, “The fact that I am seeing, last night, him … making fun … inappropriate jokes and insensitive jokes, cruel jokes … make no mistake. I am glad that Chris Cuomo has recovered from COVID because he apparently did have it. And I’m glad that their family is well, but my family is not well. And that is not something to joke about.”

As Fox News noted, over 6,200 elderly residents may have died from COVID-19 in New York nursing homes, according to state health department statistics. On March 25, the New York Department of Health issued an advisory that stated nursing homes had to accept residents returning from hospitals whether or not they had a diagnosis of COVID-19…

Dean is fired up about this issue and is pointing out what she considers journalistic malpractice on the part of CNN.
