CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said Thursday calling journalists "fake news" is "the equivalent of the n-word."
From Sirius XM:
Attacks on the press for being ‘fake news’ have become a staple of President Trump‘s rhetoric, with CNN — hosts/reporters included — often being called out by name.
Cuomo apologized for the statement Thursday afternoon on twitter.
"I was wrong," he said. "Calling a journalist fake -nothing compared to the pain of a racial slur. I should not have said it. I apologize."
Incidentally, some fake news site Geek.com called your's truly "fake news" for accurately reporting a hate crime hoax as a hate crime hoax.
As the site is imploding, I didn't bother to file a complaint. That said, if what Chris Cuomo says is true perhaps I could accuse them of a hate crime.
