‘When are you guys gonna start covering Cuomo?’
A reporter was filming as he confronted CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta at CPAC 2021, asking why the cable news network is ignoring the Andrew Cuomo nursing home scandal.
Taking a page out of Acosta’s own book, The Federalistcorrespondent David Marcus interrupted a question and answer session to repeatedly ask Acosta, “When are you guys gonna start covering Cuomo?”
“We do,” Acosta replies, to which the man responds, “No you don’t. He killed 10,000 people and is accused of sexual assault and you guys want to talk about Ted Cruz.”
The CNN correspondent, once dubbed “fake news” by President Donald Trump, made a name for himself by frequently sparring with the president.
