Perspectives: The Media and Andrew Cuomo

AllSides Summary

After New York Attorney General Letitia James said a probe had determined that Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed at least 11 women, widespread media coverage followed soon after — as did media criticism. Cuomo has gained national prominence in recent years, due in large part to his public feuds with former President Donald Trump and his state's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The governor has been a constant figure in media coverage of these subjects, while also being the main focus of other narratives, such as his potential to run for president or his administration's alleged cover-up of COVID-19-related deaths in nursing homes

Right-rated outlets and voices focus more on Cuomo's relationship with the media than left- and center-rated outlets. Many on the right accuse major news sources of being biased in Cuomo's favor throughout the pandemic, and softening public perception of him while masking controversies. Some focused specifically on CNN and primetime host Chris Cuomo, Andrew's brother, who frequently hosted him on his weeknight TV show during the pandemic and reportedly advised him amid the sexual harassment probe.
