CNN’s Chris Cuomo Mistakenly Refers to Speaker of the House as Senator Boehner

IMG_00002449CNN’s Chris Cuomo this morning made a little mistakey in his coverage of last night’s defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor by Tea Party challenger Dave Brat in the Virginia primary.

The “New Day” anchor referred to the Speaker of the House as Senator Boehner.

FishbowlDC has reached out to “New Day” PR for comment on the gaffe. I bet John King would have NEVER made that mistake.

Cuomo: I Do Magic Wall Good?

cuomo's magic board

Looks like Dana Bash isn’t the only one to leave John King. (ZING!) His beloved Magic Wall has run away to New York and into the arms of Chris Cuomo. Clearly tired of the rigors of campaign reporting, the Magic Wall has started a new life as the world’s largest Magna Doodle. As you can see, it is now helping Chris answer some burning questions Americans have about the Bridgegate scandal like, “How Not Know?” and “Why?”

why

Why,  indeed,  CNN. Why, indeed.

The Bro-ification of Rep. Cohen and Geraldo

Newsmen like CNN’s “New Day” Co-host Chris Cuomo and FNC’s Geraldo Rivera seem to have a soft spot for Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.). The congressman was falsely believed to have the hots for a young blonde woman who turned out to be his daughter–and then, of course–it turned out she wasn’t actually his offspring as a DNA test would reveal.

In a tear-stained interview Cohen poured his heart out to Cuomo. And now the lawmaker has a sympathetic ear in Rivera. Over the weekend, the pair exchanged male bonding tweets that went something like this… Read more

Rep. Cohen to CNN: ‘I Still Think of Her as My Daughter’

This morning CNN aired an interview between congressional correspondent Dana Bash and Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.). Cohen is the congressman who began tweeting to a blonde coed back in February, raising eyebrows as to just who Victoria Brink was. At the time, many wondered if she was his girlfriend. Cohen ultimately said she was her daughter and introduced her at Washington parties as such.

New revelations last week, including a DNA test, however, proved otherwise.

“She said she didn’t know who her biological father was, she said for her mental health she needed it,” Cohen told CNN of the DNA test. “I would have avoided it but I’d do anything for Victoria.”

Cohen said he still feels like he’s her father. “We still communicate and I care about her greatly and I think she cares about me and I hope, we plan to continue to have a relations,” he told Bash. “I still think of her as my daughter.”

The story aired on “New Day,” hosted by Chris Cuomo and Kate Bolduan, both of whom quickly jumped in to defend Cohen. Read more

U.S. News Writer Blasts CNN’s Cuomo for Creating ‘Adolescent Fantasy’

In a recent blog post, U.S. News & World Report‘s Susan Milligan blasts CNN’s Chris Cuomo for what she perceives was a cheap and tawdry interview with Amanda Knox. As Milligan observes, he comes across like he’s the deviant that she’s accused of being.

Sentence by sentence, she rips him to pieces, saying Cuomo refused to believe that Knox was not a “deviant, sex-crazed, freak.” Gawker‘s Caity Weaver also thought Cuomo harassed Knox in the interview. She parodies the interview, writing, “Were you doin’ some sex stuff? Some kinda freaky sex stuff? Some freaky sex stuff like everybody says you like? ‘Zat what gets you off? Sex? You like doing sex?” The Daily Caller‘s TV reporter Jeff Poor called Cuomo’s style “aggressive” and listed highlights of the sexual and drug-related questions he asked.

A particularly damning excerpt from Milligan:

“The irony here is overwhelming. Knox is accused of being a murderer motivated by sexual ‘deviancy’ (never mind who decides what is ‘deviant’). And yet it is Cuomo who seems to have created some adolescent fantasy about the slutty girl and her uptight, English friend. Is this journalism or the working script for a bad porn movie?”

In Wake of Tragedy, Journalists Bicker

No judgment here.

But last night Twitter was a curious place to be as we watched clusters of journalists needle one another and, in some cases, go for the throat without real just cause. Sharpened nerves. An inability to piece together what happened. Heightened tensions in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.

They were primed to fight. For example, since when do retweets really mean endorsements? Really never, except for last night when anything could spark a feud.

So much for the wise and largely unheeded advice from Ruth Graham, contributing writer to The Boston Globe‘s ideas section; freelancer for Slate and The Atlantic: “Guys, if you see a tweet that pisses you off today because it’s rude or dumb or political, maybe consider just ignoring it?”

What, and ignore the chance to take your frayed nerves out on someone else like a rabid dog? We’re vaguely reminded of Glenn Close in the bloody bathtub scene of “Fatal Attraction” and her chilling remark, “I mean, I’m not going to be ignored, Dan.”

Among the two big clusters of brawls was another “Glenn.” This one, Politico‘s Glenn Thrush, who attempted to school CNN’s Chris Cuomo on proper bomb coverage. Cuomo wrote, 1. “#Boston – latest. Two bombs exploded. A 3rd pkg was blown up by auth’s. As many as 3 other possible devices being investigated.” 2. “#Boston authorities still searching. Two crude bombs with ball bearings or shrapnel went off. Other pkgs found may have been non-explosive.” 3. “Being told at this point not ruling out one actor theory.”

Thrush lashed out. “Wait–so how did one guy plant the 8 bombs u told us about earlier? …Not being a wise ass — asking u to think before u press send,” Thrush wrote to Cuomo. The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg promptly backed Thrush: “Now on Twitter, Glenn Thrush is teaching Chris Cuomo about journalism. …Just to be clear, I was complimenting Glenn Thrush for teaching Chris Cuomo about the dangers of spreading unconfirmed information.” Cuomo ignored his critics and didn’t respond to any of them.

The other snarl was Politico‘s Dylan Byers versus ClearChannel‘s Colby Hall and BuzzFeed‘s Andrew Kaczynski. Byers, who’s usually pretty mild-mannered on Twitter, and Kaczynski, who occasionally enjoys subtle antagonizing, eventually seemed to warm back up to each other, but not without a few blistering moments when BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief and Twitter father figure Ben Smith, who at different points hired them both, dove in to effectively say, ‘You’re both right.’ Come on Ben, in a good Twitter fight, opposing sides are never both right! But this morning he declared to some involved parties: “No haters.” But life on Twitter is not always so civilized.

Some more spiritual healing ignored by all: “A crisis depletes your emotions,” wrote megachurch pastor Rick Warren, whose popularly isn’t exactly soaring in the gay community. “You must intentionally replenish them. Make a list of what restores you and do those things.”

Restore? How about a brawl on what the real meaning of “retweet” is. Is it a ringing endorsement or sharing facts or innocently presenting a contrasting viewpoint? If you’re Politico‘s Byers, it’s the latter as he shared a diary piece from the conservative RedState; if you’re ClearChannel‘s Hall it’s the former and it appeared to seriously piss him off. And then Byers used profanity and the whole thing got U.G.L.Y.

Colby Hall: “Why promote some random wacko consipiracy [sic] theory?”

Dylan Byers: “Because it’s indicative of what some on far-right are thinking. will matter later.”

Colby Hall: “Or you are just promoting the acceptance of a half-baked theory that is better left ignored.”

Dylan Byers: “Or you are full of shit.”

Colby Hall: “Whoa!”

Dylan Byers: “I’m not promoting anything. I’m showing parameters of conversation.”

Colby Hall: “Now who’s full of shit?”

Dylan Byers: “You think I’m endorsing fringe speculation because I take note of it? I doubt that.”

Colby Hall: But you didn’t just “take note of it”…you brought attention to it by linking to it. so yeah, you promoted it.

Dylan Byers: “Providing link to an article you don’t necessarily agree with is not promoting it. It’s referencing it.”

Colby Hall: “But editorial judgment isn’t just what you link — it’s what you chose not to link to.”

This is about when Andrew Kaczynski jumped into the fray: Read more

Zucker’s Bold Morning Show Announcement: Chris Cuomo and Kate Bolduan

CNN President Jeff Zucker sent a quick note to staff this morning, filling them in on news of the new upcoming morning program that will replace Soledad O’Brien‘s “Starting Point.”

He wrote: “I wanted to be the first to share with you all a very exciting announcement we are about to make about our new morning show.  We welcomed Chris Cuomo to the CNN family last month, and we are now rounding out the team with our own Kate Bolduan, and welcoming Michaela Pereira from KTLA in Los Angeles.  There will be much more news about this exciting new show in the weeks to come, but today’s announcement gives us a very strong start.  Please join me in congratulating Chris and Kate, and welcoming Michaela to CNN.”

Michaela Pereira will join CNN from KTLA Morning News in Los Angeles, as the program’s news anchor. News executive Jim Murphy will oversee the program as senior executive producer, and Matt Frucci will serve as executive producer. The show will be broadcast from CNN’s New York City studios.
