FLASHBACK: Scandal-Plagued Cuomo Got Lavish Praise from Media

March 2, 2021

The media's past praise for New York governor Andrew Cuomo (D.) has aged poorly as the depth of the scandals embroiling the governor unfolds. Late Show host Stephen Colbert flirted with the idea of a "President Cuomo" and Hollywood actress Rosie Perez expressed adulation for the governor when he received the 2020 International Emmy Founders Award for his "masterful" COVID-19 press briefings.

Cuomo is now facing accusations of sexual assault from three former aides and is under investigation for refusing to release data on the total number of COVID-related nursing home deaths in his state.
