Geraldo Rivera Calls NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo a Bully and Media Manipulator

Cuomo came under fire last month after he got into a shouting match with reporters while denying that New York City schools would be shut down. Cuomo told Wall Street Journal reporter Jimmy Vielkind that “he was confused” as he tried to clarify the governor’s stance on re-opening the country’s largest public school system amid a pandemic.

Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera said that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is a bully who manipulates the media. Rivera’s pointed comments came during The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino on Tuesday.

“He has none of the humility and the care and compassion that his parents had,” Rivera said. “Andrew seems arrogant, a bully, he’s a master media manipulator.”

Cuomo came under fire last month after he got into a shouting match with reporters while denying that New York City schools would be shut down. Cuomo told Wall Street Journal reporter Jimmy Vielkind that “he was confused” as he tried to clarify the governor’s stance on re-opening the country’s largest public school system amid a pandemic.

Rivera criticized Cuomo’s overreaction at the height of the pandemic, citing the U.S.N.S Comfort which basically went unused and eventually ended up leaving the city. “We here at Fox have a special grudge against the Governor Cuomo because of the loss of Janice Dean, the Weather Machine’s beloved in-laws, who were forced into a nursing home with infected COVID patients, so there was excess mortality, many critics allege.”

Monday, Cuomo told reporters that Santa will be “very good to him” this Christmas because of how hard he worked.

UTA Talent Agency Drops Journalist Lara Logan

The former “60 minutes” correspondent compared Dr. Anthony Fauci to Dr. Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who performed cruel medical experiments on Jewish prisoners.

Mediaite reports that Lara Logan has been dropped by her talent agency UTA in the fallout regarding comments she made during a guest appearance on Fox News in late November. 

The former “60 minutes” correspondent compared Dr. Anthony Fauci to Dr. Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who performed cruel medical experiments on Jewish prisoners.

“This is what people say to me, that he doesn’t represent science to them. He represents Josef Mengele. The Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the Second World War and in the concentration camps,” Logan said. 

UTA chief communications officer Seth Oster confirmed the agency severed ties with Logan several weeks ago. Additionally, a UTA insider corroborated to Mediaite that she was let go over her “highly offensive” and “unacceptable” remarks, which sparked anger within the agency.

Fox News never employed Logan, but she did host a show on their streaming platform on Fox Nation (“Lara Logan Has No Agenda”) and appeared regularly on the cable news network as an unpaid guest.

However, since those comments, Logan has disappeared from the air at Fox News and hasn’t been booked since.
