The media also perpetuated and encouraged @NYGovCuomo’s behavior by asking about his love life (instead of dead seniors), calling him the “luv guv” and “single ready to mingle.” How about this cringe letter to him by @chelseahandler @voguemagazine…
Watch this @arobach fawning interview without ever asking about nursing homes:
(It’s a supercut of fawning over him but she NEVER touched the nursing homes. I remember because I watched it and was furious)
Excellent summary:…
This one too. @RealJanePauley did this one. Not one nursing home question…

Love you ⁦@karol⁩. Here’s her latest in ⁦@Newsweek⁩:

.⁦@NYGovCuomo⁩ Didn't Protect Seniors From COVID-19. But it Was the Media That Covered it Up…
“On ABC's @TheView in October, @sunny did mention the nursing home controversy, but she allowed Cuomo to get away with denying he ever sent a directive at all—before they went back to discussing his love life.”
“Cuomo's June media tour also featured a spot on @GMA where hostess Amy Robach referred to him as "homecoming king of this crisis," talked about his love life and urged him to run for president. He did not receive questions about the nursing home deaths.”

Here’s one of cuomo’s answers about whether or not city workers/elderly can get vaccinated: “you can make a reservation and somebody says that you can come in and get it on Monday, fine, to the extent a hospital says I have vaccine that I can make available on Monday...
fine the hospitals still have to prioritize the health care workers and they have a long way to go, but if they have extra capacity and they can do 1B on Monday  fine but make a reservation.”
Translation: blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Make a reservation.

Here’s some fun stuff I researched after the @WSJ article came out yesterday re: nursing home order to put Covid positive patients into nursing homes:
“Mr. Raske, president of the Greater New York Hospital Association, said he contacted Mr. Cuomo’s team for help with nursing homes. Hospitals couldn’t afford to house recovered nursing-home residents long-term, with models showing they soon could be swamped.” @WSJ
Why is this important? Because
“Greater NY forged a bond years ago with 1199SEIU, a health care workers union, and has presented a unified front against health care cuts. Its president, Kenneth Raske, enjoys a close relationship with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo...

This picture was taken a few months after September 11, 2001 for a @VanityFair piece about the surviving firefighters of @FDNY Engine 40/Ladder 35.  The writer was #DavidHalberstam. The photographer @JonasKarlsson. They lost 12 men that day.  My husband Sean is on the far right.
2) Our friend Ray Pfeifer is standing next to him in the picture. We lost Ray to 9/11 related cancer, but Ray fought while he was sick to ensure fellow first responders would have access to health care. We miss him, but his legacy lives on with his family and @RayPfeiferFDTN
3) Here are the faces of the good men that died on 9/11 in my husbands firehouse 19 years ago as they ran into the burning towers in lower Manhattan to try to save others.  God Bless them, their families and the @FDNY #NeverForget911

My friend Tom passed away. I’ve known him for over 30 years, and he was an incredible influence in my life. I had quit college and was visiting him in California in my early 20’s. Taking a year off to figure out what I wanted to do with my life.
2) I was envious of him living in a beautiful place with the career he always dreamed of.  I told him I wanted to be a radio broadcaster and he sat me down to give me some tough love, and the hard truth that my goal wasn’t going to magically happen.
3) If I wanted to someday live in the US, and be a broadcaster, that could happen, but not without hard work and dedication. I took his advice, went back to school, applied for my US citizenship and set out to live my American dream. Just like Tom.

Cuomo Gets a Nursing Home Inspection - ⁦…
“Mr. Cuomo decreed on March 25 that “no resident shall be denied re-admission or admission because of a virus diagnosis. He prohibited homes “from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested” for the virus before admission.”
“Yet, Mr. Cuomo continued to send recovering Covid patients back to nursing homes even when there were plenty of surge beds—both in a U.S. Navy hospital ship, and the Javits Center. A Brooklyn NH asked the state to transfer patients to these field hospitals. Mr. Cuomo said NO.”
