Aug 15 - Report: CNN Newsroom ‘Embarrassed’ over Chris Cuomo’s ‘Fredo’ Meltdown
 

 
CNN staffers are “embarrassed” by primetime host Christopher Cuomo’s videotaped freakout in which he threatened a man with physical violence for referring to him as “Fredo” — a term he claimed was an anti-Italian slur, according to a report.
“Punk-ass bi*ches from the right call me ‘Fredo.’ My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN,” the host is seen saying in the video shared to a YouTube channel with the title “That’s the Point with Brandon”:

During another point in the video, Cuomo threatens to physically harm the man, shouting, “I’ll fu*king ruin your sh*t. I’ll fu*king throw you down these stairs like a fu*king punk. … You’re gonna call me ‘Fredo’? Take a fu*king swing.”

He also claimed that “Fredo” is comparable to the “N-word” for Italians.

Cuomo is seen using the word “fu*k” nearly 25 times, according to a count conducted by NewsBusters.

The New York Post’s Page Six reports that while CNN’s management supports Cuomo, some in the newsroom are none too pleased with the Cuomo Prime Time host for flying off the handle:
Insiders say that — while CNN brass stood by Chris Cuomo after he was caught on camera threatening a man who called him “Fredo” — the newsroom rank and file was “embarrassed” by the blowup.



One insider said they personally thought the run-in was “great” and that Cuomo would get a pass from higher-ups because “he’s BFFs with [CNN president Jeff] Zucker.” Another said the newsroom chatter was that “everyone thinks it’s fine to stand up to trolls, but it escalated way past where it needed to.” While they said Cuomo generally has a good reputation with the staff, “It was embarrassing.” They added, “It was an unforced error, and he gave the right — and the president — ammunition to use against him and CNN.”

Shortly after Cuomo’s confrontation was posted online, CNN spokesperson Matt Dornic expressed support for the anchor, writing on Twitter, “Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him.”

In a tweet, Cuomo conceded he let the man he berated get the best of him.



“Appreciate all the support but – truth is I should be better than the guys baiting me. This happens all the time these days. Often in front of my family. But there is a lesson: no need to add to the ugliness; I should be better than what I oppose,” Cuomo, who is reportedly on vacation, wrote.

Ironically, CNN contributor Ana Navarro used the term “Fredo” to insult Donald Trump Jr. on Cuomo’s program in January, a comparison the host did not object to as a slur. Cuomo even referred to himself as the inept Godfather character in a 2010 radio interview. The nickname for Cuomo was popularized by Breitbart News’s John Nolte and is used frequently by radio talk show legend Rush Limbaugh.

Even President Donald Trump weighed in on Cuomo, tweeting, “I thought Chris was Fredo also.”



“Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!” the president wrote in a subsequent tweet.

Right wingers wanna pretend like they care about violence once someone on the other side flips the script. Cuomo pulled their hoe cards and had em doing the fu*king moonwalk. "Naw man I thought that was your name, I swear." fu*king pussies.
