Janice Dean began speaking out against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo when she saw that media outlets weren’t holding the Democratic governor accountable for what was happening in New York during the COVID-10 pandemic.

Dean, senior meteorologist at Fox News Channel, lost both her mother-in-law and father-in-law to the disease in New York nursing homes. While thousands of elderly men and women were dying of COVID-19, Cuomo was “celebrating himself,” she says.

The New York governor was “on CNN with his brother [anchor Chris Cuomo] joking around, while thousands of people were dying,” Dean says. “Body bags [were] literally piling up outside of nursing homes and storage facilities and storage trucks.”

Dean joins the “Problematic Women” podcast to discuss Cuomo and whether he ultimately will be held accountable for his handling of New York nursing homes during the pandemic. She also discusses her new book. “Make Your Own Sunshine: Inspiring Stories of People Who Find Light in Dark Times,” and why she aims to find the good in every challenging situation of life.

Also on today’s show, we discuss a Florida high school that chose to digitally adjust students’ yearbook photos to make them more appropriate. And as always, we’ll crown our Problematic Woman of the Week.

Enjoy the show!
