CNN’s ‘New Day’ host, Chris Cuomo invited Republican presidential candidate, Carly Fiorina to appear on his show this past Friday. Once she was on, Cuomo launched an attack on Fiorina that basically accused her of orchestrating the shooting at Planned Parenthood in Colorado.
Cuomo asked Fiorina, “Do you feel any sense of regret about how you characterized what was going on at Planned Parenthood after the attack in Colorado? Because of what the man said, which seems as though he was influenced by some of the rhetoric that was coming out of you and others that painted a very ugly picture, an unfair one, about Planned Parenthood?”
“Oh, please. Really, Chris?” Fiorina responded to the out of line and slanderous question. “Look, nine videotapes have come out about Planned Parenthood. It is very clear what they have been doing. And in fact, Planned Parenthood several weeks ago made a quiet little announcement that they would no longer accept compensation for the sale of what they call fetal tissue. That’s about as close to an admission as you can get. In fact, it is an admission.”
Fiorina continued, “What happened in Colorado is a terrible thing. This guy is a deranged murderer and I hope he is put away for life. It may be that we should be classifying that as domestic terrorism as well. But that has nothing to do with the truth of what is going on in Planned Parenthood. And this is a typical left-wing tactic, to try and shut down the truth by silencing people. This has happened over and over and over again.”
The heated exchange went back and forth with Cuomo parroting Planned Parenthood’s claim that the videos were heavily and deceptively edited in spite of multiple investigations by outside sources that have determined the videos to be authentic. Cuomo also returned to his claim that Fiorina and other Republicans taking a stance against abortion is somehow the same thing as committing murder.
The exchange got so heated that Fiorina had to stop Cuomo and remind him that he is supposed to be a journalist.
Cuomo’s blatant liberal bias and lack of journalistic integrity is why Americans refer to certain outlets as “media” instead of news. They are not interested in reporting the story as so much as pushing a political agenda at all costs in spite of the facts.
