CNN’s Chris Cuomo: ‘Fake news’ is the new ‘n-word’

[Ed. – That goes both ways, right, Chris?  You don’t get to accuse other people of reporting “fake news”?]

CNN host Chris Cuomo said on Thursday that he believes hurling the “fake news” insult at journalists is similar to when people use racial slurs against minorities.

“I see being called ‘fake news’ as the equivalent of the N-word for journalists, the equivalent of calling an Italian any of the ugly words that people have for that ethnicity,” Cuomo said on SiriusXM.

“That’s what ‘fake news’ is to a journalist,” the CNN host continued. “It’s an ugly insult, and you better be right if you’re going to charge a journalist with lying on purpose.”
