It seems like about two weeks ago you were rating all the ancient sitcoms on some **** channel you were watching.

He does plenty of **** worth reporting but the problem is that he's kind of exposing modern news for their propensity for reporting like they're TMZ stalking the Kardashians rather than being reporters who care about the actual truth that matters. He simply does so much nonsense that the news can't help but report every little thing while dropping stories about him from a month before because they're willing to play to the public's short attention span for the sake of ratings.

Wow. Cuomo putting the gloves on big time. Before you go all snark, actually listen to him.

I watched it because you asked. Way to botch an opportunity to let the story speak for itself by inflating it with a boring ass editorial rant.

Subtle reporting doesn't work with the 58% of GOP voters who think the meetings in Helsinki went really swell for the US.
