MSNBC Interviews Andrew Cuomo for 16 Minutes, Never Asks About Killing Nursing Home Residents

Newly promoted Nicolle Wallace knows how to please the Democrat-loving power structure behind MSNBC. If that requires covering for the disastrous handling of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, so be it. On Monday, she talked to the man who forced nursing homes to take COVID patients in the state and never once asked him about the policy. This was despite having 16 minutes and 35 seconds of air time to do it.

Instead, she appallingly allowed Cuomo to brag and strut, suggesting that Major League Baseball should play all its games in New York. Instead of asking about the unnecessary suffering and death that his nursing home policy caused, Wallace offered hack softball questions like this: “How much of your day can you spend thinking about how to bring New York City back?”

She fawned, “As you said, we have the low infection rates. I’ve suggested that we bring all the baseball teams that are dealing with infections from states with rising cases, which is just about everyone else, to New York.”

Wallace uncritically wondered, “Is [COVID] under control in New York City?”

On Monday, MSNBC announced that Chuck Todd was being demoted to the 1 PM hour and Wallace’s show was being expanded to two hours, from 4 PM to 6 PM. If she wanted to ask a tough question, Wallace could have cited the moving op-ed by Fox’s Janice Dean. Her father-in-law died needlessly after catching COVID. Dean wrote in USA Today:

… We learned about the Cuomo administration’s March 25 order that recovering coronavirus patients be placed into nursing homes. The mandate also barred nursing homes from requiring incoming patients “to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.”

That order stayed in effect for 46 days during which time over 6,000 patients with the virus were placed into these facilities housing our most vulnerable. To date, at least 6,500 of our most helpless seniors have been killed by the virus. Even the governor himself said the virus could sweep though nursing homes “like fire though dry grass.”

The fact that this governor refuses to accept responsibility for his actions makes our grief and anger far worse. I know I speak for many when I say we need a non-partisan investigation on both the state and federal level so that this never happens again.

But Wallace has earned a promotion at MSNBC doing what the Democratic Party and the liberal establishment wants. So holding powerful liberals to account isn’t something she’s interested in.

The propaganda on MSNBC was sponsored by Safelite and Chevrolet.
