Why Cuomo's ratings did not save him

CNN suspended Chris Cuomo for helping Andrew Cuomo's sexual harassment and his killing of 15,000 people by putting covid patients in nursing homes.

On Saturday, CNN fired Chris Cuomo for his own sexual harassment. He learned as Bill O'Reilly did that ratings matter very little. Both had the No. 1 show on their news channel. Both got canned.

Advertising boycotts, however, failed to dislodge Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity because their ratings matter.

Confused?

CNN can't even fire a guy right

The New York Post reported, "Fired CNN host Chris Cuomo is set to sue the network if it balks at paying him at least $18 million to cover what’s left on his contract, sources told The Post on Monday.

"Cuomo, 51, has hired lawyers and is preparing to file the lawsuit over the remainder of the four-year contract he signed last year — after a bitter back-and-forth about what the network knew of his secret efforts to aid his embattled brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said sources familiar with the matter.

"His contract was reportedly worth $6 million annually, leaving between $18 million and $20 million that he would be owed, sources said, adding that Chris Cuomo would also likely seek damages.

"But CNN has 'no intention of paying Cuomo a penny,' an insider said. 'If he gets a settlement, there would be uproar.'"

Omicron may cure covid

The hysteria over the omicron variant of covid 19 is unwarranted and sadly not unprecedented as politicians keep using covid to expand their power. Health directors have become technocratic tyrants.

Let's get real.

Alec Baldwin has killed more people than omicron has.

You called Trump Hitler, we'll call Fauci Mengele

Jack Shafer is Politico’s senior media writer. He's all upset because Lara Logan called Tony Fauci Mengele.

He wrote, "Time to Pull the Plug on Cable News. Cable News reaches a tiny fraction of the country, so why does the rest of the media care so much about the stupid things it says?"

That is an odd headline for a column that complains about the stupid things said on cable news.

Give babies the rights murderers have

I am no lawyer nor am I a clairvoyant. In 2012, I was sure the Supreme Court would strike down Obamacare in a decision that struck down the tiresome interstate commerce argument of Obama's solicitor general, and created a new argument that congress was levying a tax.

The Court is now considering abortion.

My understanding is Roe v. Wade said in the first 13 weeks -- trimester -- the state could not touch abortion because the baby is not viable outside the womb. I also understand that the decision said the state could regulate abortion in the next 13 weeks, and in the final 13 weeks, the government could outlaw abortion entirely.
