NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Dana Gush's Hourlong CNN Valentine for AOC

August 11th, 2021 8:14 PM

In the Cuomo Prime Time slot the evening before Andrew Cuomo resigned in New York, CNN devoted an hour to the special Being... AOC. CNN's Dana Bash energetically celebrated the uncompromising (socialist) confidence of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Bash asked AOC what it was like being so rudely abused by Fox News, and how criticism of her in the conservative media is based on racism, sexism, and an unhealthy obsession with a young attractive Latina.

Nowhere in the hour did Bash ask about...Andrew Cuomo, even though AOC represents New York in the House of Representatives.

Original NewsBuster Mark Finkelstein -- who began with us in 2005 -- comes on the Podcast to discuss  the worst breaking bluster of Morning Joe. Mika Brzezinski has been freaking out repeatedly about how Ron DeSantis and others are leading a "death cult" on COVID, and encouraging the idea that DeSantis is a "criminal" in office. Joe Scarborough even suggested crazy Christians think "Jesus" will save them while they remain unvaccinated and reject masks. Is this a news show or a cartoon?
