CBS This Morning has been covering for Andrew Cuomo for months, desperately hiding news about New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s disastrous policy of forcing nursing homes to take corona patients. On Wednesday, the program covered the story, but only as a way of bashing red state Florida for the system it set up.
Reporter David Begnaud explained, “I don’t know if you know this, but here in the U.S. more than 40,000 nursing home residents are believed to have died from the coronavirus and 6,500 deaths happened in the state of New York. There are hearings being held in New York to address those deaths and the policies that may have led to some of them.”

No, Mr. Begnaud. Viewers might not know. Because on May 18, CBS This Morning did a story on the “devastating toll” of COVID and never mentioned the decision by Cuomo. On June 25, the show did another story about nursing homes and corona. Again, no mention of the Democratic governor. .
Begnaud reported on Wednesday: “Governor Andrew Cuomo and the Department of Health have been criticized for directing those facilities back in March to take in coronavirus patients to relieve stress on the hospitals. After backlash they added a requirement, that was in may, that hospitals could not discharge patients unless they tested negative.”
He told viewers: “In New York, around 6,500 people are briefed to have died of the coronavirus in nursing homes and long-term care facilities.” All of this, however, seemed to be a way of criticizing Florida for what seems like a similarly questionable decision:
But after seeing what happened in New York, you have families now who have relatives here in Florida who are worried with the fact that the state of Florida is allowing nursing homes to accept COVID-positive patients.
So now that Florida has problems, it’s okay to talk about New York’s disaster? In late July, ABC devoted 16 minutes to COVID, but had nothing on New York and Cuomo.
