The establishment media lavished praise on Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) throughout the coronavirus pandemic while simultaneously attacking Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) despite data supporting the Florida governor’s pro-freedom approach to the pandemic. Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow examines this media phenomenon in his investigative blockbuster Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption.
One of the most recent examples of the deep corruption and demonstrative bias of the corporate media and their allies can be seen in the way the press portrayed Cuomo versus DeSantis, Marlow observes in Breaking the News.

The New York governor messaged to the press like the situation was well under control, or at least on the way to being under control. “Everybody is doing exactly what we need to do,” Cuomo said during a March 2 news conference with New York City mayor Bill de Blasio. “We have been ahead of this from Day 1,” Fredo’s big bro said. He directly contradicted himself during a March 30 press conference, stating, “I am tired of being behind this virus. We’ve been behind this virus from day one.” About six weeks later, New York State would cross one thousand coronavirus deaths in a single day.
Cuomo said in April 2020 that “data suggests we are flattening the curve so far.” If that was the case, why did it take until February 2021 for indoor dining to return to New York City?
Cuomo brazenly published a book on pandemic-era leadership on October 13, 2020. On that day, New York recorded 1,391 new coronavirus cases. New York then experienced a massive coronavirus surge, hitting 19,560 new cases on January 8, 2021, fourteen times more than the day Cuomo’s book was released. All the while, the statewide lockdowns crushed countless businesses and even entire industries. Unemployment for the state hit 14.7 percent in April, the highest rate since the great depression. By September, Yelp reported that over 11,000 New York City businesses had closed. Most closures—63 percent—were expected to be permanent. The Partnership for New York City estimated that perhaps 80,000(!) of the city’s small businesses would not outlive the pandemic.


Cuomo was also responsible for what Marlow describes as “the single most devastating public policy decision of the entire pandemic: cramming sick patients into nursing homes, essentially sentencing many other patients to their deaths.” His administration has still not sufficiently answered for that egregious policy decision, and the corporate media has failed to hold Cuomo accountable. Instead, they kept their focus on Florida Gov. DeSantis, who essentially took the opposite approach of Cuomo, prioritizing freedom by allowing businesses to reopen, suspending coronavirus-related fines imposed by localities, reopening schools, and most recently, banning the use of vaccine passports in the Sunshine State — a move he remains committed to. And the results? Florida thrived, Marlow notes:

Florida, meanwhile, kept its economy mostly open and still fared relatively well with the virus. A candidate for line of the year came in a failed attempt by PolitiFact to ding Governor DeSantis for exaggerating his success against the virus: “Only about half of the 10 most stringently regulated states saw rates of cases, deaths and hospitalizations that were twice as high as Florida’s—DeSantis’ benchmark.” This is a gobbledygook argument, but I think the point they are making is that only five out of the ten states they looked at were twice as bad as Florida. Take that, Ron! But the “fact- check” does admit that “Broadly speaking, we found that Florida’s record, at least as of the beginning of December, compared favorably with most states across the country, including those with tighter restrictions.”

Florida has the largest population of over-sixty-five-year-olds in the United States other than California; they have about a million more seniors than does New York. Seniors make up over 20 percent of Florida’s population, compared to New York’s 16 percent. Yet, as of March 2021, according to New York Times data, Florida’s death rate is less than two- thirds of New York State’s and nearly identical to New York City’s. Also as of March 2021, 247 New Yorkers and 355 New York City residents out of every 100,000 died of COVID-19, respectively, compared to 149 out of every 100,000 Floridians.

Ultimately, the state that never had a statewide mask mandate fared better and had a “superior” strategy to blue New York, Marlow observes.
Nevertheless, the corporate media did their best to ignore the facts, only being forced to cover the basic news after New York’s Democrat attorney general Letitia James found New York had been “drastically undercounting the COVID- related deaths in the state’s nursing homes,” Marlow writes:

Right around the time the Cuomo bros were playing games on CNN while New York’s elderly died en masse, Florida governor Ron DeSantis was beating expectations. Even left-wing Politico wrote in May 2020—the sentiment still holds true—“let’s just come out and say it: DeSantis looks more right than those who criticized the Sunshine State’s coronavirus response.” Stunningly, the beltway-centric publication noted that the media was biased against DeSantis, despite the numbers.


All the while, Florida continued to outperform blue states despite its absence of draconian lockdown orders and a sweeping mask mandate.
“DeSantis continues to be vindicated despite the media’s insistence that he had put the entire state in jeopardy,” Marlow adds, offering a barrage of headlines from the establishment media when Disney World in Orlando, Florida, reopened in June 2020. These included: “Disney World set to reopen despite severe out-break unfolding in Florida” from the Washington Post; “Disney World reopens as coronavirus cases spike in Florida” from CNN; and “Disney World Opens Its Gates, with Virus Numbers Rising” from the New York Times.

Virtually every establishment media outlet took the same angle, promoting the same narrative, positioning DeSantis as making irresponsible and dangerous decisions, writes Marlow:

Few of these outlets doubled back and noted that hysteria over Disney World’s opening was entirely misplaced. Florida cases went down after the reopening and no outbreaks were traced to the theme park. The New York Times, to their credit, is an exception, though they waited several months to report the good news. They reported in October 2020, “At Disney World, ‘Worst Fears’ About Virus Have Not Come True.”


Officials never connected Disney World to any sort of super spreader events, yet California’s Disneyland remained closed for far longer, reopening at just 25 percent capacity on Friday, April 30 — 293 days after Disney World first reopened.
Despite the continuous stream of opprobrium from the corporate media, DeSantis routinely recognized their bias and disregarded it, continuing to forge a path ahead and lifting major restrictions in September 2020. His actions did not spur any major outbreaks — a fact ignored by the media, which remained dazzled by DeSantis’s blue state counterpart.
“The DeSantis ‘hero’ profiles from the establishment press were non-existent,” Marlow writes, noting that other headlines spoke for themselves, citing a New York Post piece detailing how New Yorkers were fleeing the state and heading to the free state of Florida.
Now, months later, blue state leaders are just beginning to follow the Florida governor’s lead in reopening their states and forgoing mask mandates, with little to no criticism from the establishment media — the same establishment media that could not get enough of demonizing the Republican governor mere months ago for doing the same.

DEAD ON ARRIVAL? GOP Blocks Dem Voting Bill with Filibuster, Leaders Say ‘Fight Not Over’

ABRAMS CLAIM: Stacey Abrams Says She Was Nearly Blocked from Voting in Georgia Election

posted by Hannity Staff – 11.21.18

Democratic candidate in Georgia’s gubernatorial race Stacey Abrams claimed she was nearly blocked from voting this week; doubling-down on her previous comments that “voter suppression” led to an “unfair” midterm election.

Abrams was speaking with NPR when she stated an Election Day staffer attempted to stop her from casting her ballot; saying “The day I voted, I had to correct the poll worker who said I had filed for an absentee ballot.”

“I did it quietly. I didn’t turn it into a major conversation because, for me, it was about getting through the process,” she added. “But it was also emblematic to me of the privilege that I have.”

“I know the law … There are thousands, millions in Georgia who do not know what their rights are and therefore do not know that they shouldn’t have to wait in four-hour lines in the rain with their children. They shouldn’t have to worry about whether they will lose their jobs in order to exercise their democratic right to vote for their leader,” said Abrams

ADD IT TO THE LIST: Hillary Blames Supreme Court Decision for 2016 Election Loss

posted by Hannity Staff – 9.17.19

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continued her worldwide excuses tour this week; asserting a Supreme Court decision regarding the “Voting Rights Act” had a major impact in her 2016 loss to Donald Trump.

“Now, I was the first person who ran for president in more than 50 years without the protection of the Voting Rights Act. And let me just say, it makes a difference,” said Clinton at an event hosted by the American Federation of Teachers.

“The latest remarks were seemingly the first time she alleged a structural disadvantage created by the Supreme Court. In 2013, the Court drew Democrats’ ire when it struck down a portion of the Voting Rights Act, which was passed in 1965 as a way to secure voting rights for African Americans,” reports Fox News.

“Voters faced intimidation and harassment that echoed some of the worst chapters in our nation’s history,” she said. “Voter ID requirements amounted to a modern-day poll tax. Voter ID requirements, which were literally made up for the purpose of preventing certain people from actually being able to cast a vote that would be counted. We saw fewer voting places, long lines, and malfunctioning equipment — again, in certain places.”

To date, Clinton has blamed her 2016 loss on the mainstream media, Facebook, Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, the FBI, James Comey, misogyny, racism, local newspapers, Russia, and more.
