Newt Gingrich Audio Update: Without Trump, is the Media Turning on Cuomo?

One of the most interesting public policy developments of the last 24 hours is the report that nine New York public health officials have quit over Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. The upper echelon of the New York public health system is repudiating Cuomo. For the first time — I think since President Trump is no longer the center of news — you are beginning to see the news media look at Gov. Cuomo negatively.

One of the most interesting public policy developments of the last 24 hours is nine New York public health officials who have quit in a fight with Governor Cuomo over the whole way he’s been handling the coronavirus pandemic is a really remarkable you’ve now had basically the top echelon of the New York public health program, all repudiate Cuomo, and the state attorney general released an initial report indicating the New York policy may have undercounted coronavirus nursing home deaths in the state by as much as 50%. This is about 43,000 people have died in New York being infected with coronavirus, the largest death toll of any state. I think for the very first time maybe because Trump is no longer at the center of the news. You’re beginning to see the news media look at Governor Cuomo negatively, raise tough questions and criticize him in a way that we have not seen any Democrat since the election of Trump in 2016. So some very interesting developments, well worth paying attention to.
