Recently on CNN, host Don Lemon got into a controversial debate with CNN’s Chris Cuomo about whether or not the network should continue to air the White House coronavirus briefings live.
According to Breitbart, Lemon stated, “I’m not actually sure, if you want to be honest, that we should carry that live. I think we should run snippets. I think we should do it afterwards and get the pertinent points to the American people. Because he’s never, ever going to tell you the truth. And guess what he’s going to do? If you ask a question that is a legitimate question, and if he doesn’t like the question, he is going to say whether it’s — whether you’re being mean or not or whatever he wants to call it, he is going to say, that is a mean, nasty question. … Those press briefings have become his new ‘Apprentice.’ They’ve become his new rallies.”
Cuomo replied, “I understand the frustration with his messaging.”
Adding, “I don’t believe in censorship.”
Lemon then whined that he didn’t want the entire briefing censored.
Cuomo replied, “I’m saying play all of it. I want to hear everything he has to say. I want it all to be out there and I want him to be held to account. Because this isn’t BS politics right now. It’s not about nicknames. It’s not about what he can call another party.” You can watch a clip of the exchange here.
