Before their martini consumption, Jim and Greg remember Pearl Harbor 80 years after the Japanese attack that launched our nation into World War II and all the heroes who have served our nation. Then they go through new studies showing once again that raising the minimum wage leads to employees losing their jobs. They also recoil as the Biden White House tries to convince major media outlets that the president deserves much better coverage on the economy. And they get the popcorn ready as Chris Cuomo is reportedly preparing to sue CNN for the money remaining on his contract.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss CNN finally making the obvious decision of firing Chris Cuomo. They also dissect a Washington post story quoting ex-Kamala Harris staffers who offer brutal assessments of her temperament and her work ethic. They roll their eyes as Jen Psaki blames rampant urban looting on COVID. And they remember longtime Kansas Sen. Bob Dole as well as his three runs for the White House.

Jim and Greg are glad to see the public opposed by lopsided margins to many of the extreme provisions in the “Build Back Better” legislation. They also discuss new revelations about how involved Chris Cuomo was in helping his brother try to weather his many scandals. And they call foul on Twitter’s new policy banning any media unless everyone in the video or photo agrees to it.

 

The Brothers Cuomo Will Face No Consequences

 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo violated federal and state sexual harassment laws, according to an independent investigation by New York state’s attorney general. In a Tuesday news conference, AG Letitia James revealed that Cuomo engaged in “unwanted groping, kissing, hugging, and making inappropriate comments” to multiple women, including state employees. The probe also found Cuomo allegedly retaliated against one accuser and presided over a toxic and hostile work environment.

After interviewing 179 witnesses, James said, “These interviews and pieces of evidence revealed a deeply disturbing yet clear picture: Gov. Cuomo sexually harassed current and former state employees in violation of federal and state laws.” She added that she was “inspired by all the brave women who came forward” and “more importantly, I believe them.”

Looks like the end for the third-term New York Governor, right? Not so fast…

On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, The Federalist staff give awards to the worst corporate media performances of 2020. Whether it was the New York Times controversy over Sen. Tom Cotton’s summer opinion editorial, Chris and Andrew Cuomo’s tone-deaf attempt at a brotherly comedy session on CNN, or the Pulitzer Prize committee for awarding Nikole Hannah-Jones for the revisionist and historically inaccurate 1619 Project, there are and will continue to be plenty of media blunders to go around.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss the growing discord in Hong Kong, as demonstrators demand their freedom but also fear Chinese intervention. They also discuss  CNN host Chris Cuomo’s rant at a heckler for calling him “Fredo.” And Alexandra unloads on Harvard Prof. Laurence Tribe for alleging that white supremacy and the pro-life movement are intertwined. 

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America mourn the murders of five people in an Annapolis mass shooting and are frustrated by the litany of ignored warning signs and the knee-jerk online condemnation of President Trump for the killings because of his criticisms of the media. They also applaud the police for arriving on scene in just 60 seconds and saving many lives…and the staff of the Gazette for it’s commitment to publishing a paper today. And they try to make sense of New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand suddenly supporting the abolition of ICE and wrongly insisting that no Democrats voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert for shredding Chris Cuomo’s suggestion that Iran is suddenly a problem in the Middle East because President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the nuclear deal.  They also scold White House communications aide Kelly Sadler for suggesting Sen. John McCain’s opposition to CIA nominee Gina Haspel didn’t matter because “he’s dying anyway.”  And as the media conveniently forget about the scandalous downfall of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman just a couple of days after his resignation over allegations of abusing multiple women, Jim notices how a disturbingly high percentage of such scandals involve politicians from New York City.
