Via the Daily Mail (HT Empire Report):
CNN’s Chris Cuomo has apologized for saying being called ‘fake news’ as a journalist is the equivalent to someone using the ‘n-word’ as a racial slur.
Cuomo made the remarks during a radio interview with Michael Smerconish on SiriusXM POTUS on Thursday.
‘The only thing that’s bothersome about it, is that I see being called “fake news” as the equivalent of the n-word for journalists, the equivalent of calling an Italian any of the ugly words that people have for that ethnicity,’ Cuomo said. ‘That’s what fake news is to a journalist,’ he added.
