CNN’s Cuomo Apologizes for N-Word Comparison

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has apologized amid backlash from his comparison of fake news with the N-word.

During an interview Thursday on SiriusXM, Cuomo took umbrage with President Trump’s frequent use of the term “fake news,” telling radio host and CNN colleague Michael Smerconish that labeling journalists as such is the equivalent of using the N-word or slurs for other ethnicities.

“It is an ugly insult and you better be right if you’re going to charge a journalist with lying on purpose and the president was not right here and he has not been right in the past,” Cuomo said.

Cuomo later said that he was wrong.

“Calling a journalist fake — nothing compared to the pain of a racial slur. I should not have said it. I apologize,” Cuomo tweeted.
