If a Republican does something bad, that’s the story. If a Democrat does something bad — if the media covers it at all — the story is how Republicans respond to it.

When President Trump says, “Fake News is the Enemy of the People” he doesn’t mean just the disingenuous, slanted reporting. It’s also the editorial decisions on what is and is not covered.

Case in point, the “credible accusation” of years of sexual harassment made by a former aide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

On December 5, Lindsey Boylan tweeted that working for Governor Cuomo was the most “toxic” work environment that she’d ever been a part of. Boylan worked in the Cuomo administration from 2015 to 2018.

On Sunday morning, in a tweet thread about sexual harassment, Boylan claimed that the “Luv Gov” sexually harassed her for years.

She concluded her thread this way, “I’m angry to be put in this situation at all. That because I am a woman, I can work hard my whole life to better myself and help others and yet still fall victim as countless women over generations have. Mostly silently. I hate that some men, like @NYGovCuomo abuse their power.”

New York City politico Lindsey Boylan alleged on Twitter Sunday that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo “sexually harassed me for years,” but anyone who relies on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC or CBS for news would have no idea.

Boylan, who describes herself as a progressive on her Twitter account, worked for the governor’s administration from 2015 to 2018, according to her LinkedIn profile.

“Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years,” Boylan tweeted. “Many saw it, and watched. I could never anticipate what to expect: would I be grilled on my work (which was very good) or harassed about my looks. Or would it be both in the same conversation? This was the way for years.”

“Not knowing what to expect what’s the most upsetting part aside from knowing that no one would do a damn thing even when they saw it,” Boylan continued. “No one. And I *know* I am not the only woman.”

Just a couple of weeks earlier, the New York Democrat announced that she was running for Manhattan Borough President.

Fox News reported the allegation on the air:

That’s how Fox News handled it. So, how did CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, and CBS report it? Simple… they didn’t.

According to the Media Research Center, the networks hadn’t touched the story on Sunday or Monday.

It’s not just that the alphabet soup media chose not to cover it, when the story started getting traction online and publications were trying desperately to get those coveted clicks, USA Today had the most bizarre framing of the story.

It has the same sort of feel as the lack of coverage of Tara Reade, doesn’t it?

It’s quite the departure from the way that they handled other people who have been accused of something similar and the crazy “Believe all women” standard set by some of the louder #MeToo nutters. By “nutters” I mean the shrieking harpies that desperately wanted to punish men — even if they are innocent — rather than have actual justice.

How about just holding Governor Cuomo to his own words? He was all-in on “Believe all women” back when it would hurt Republicans and he wasn’t the target.

In a statement dated October 6, 2018, on the Confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Governor Cuomo said, “In New York, we will not waver and will not back down. To Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and all survivors of sexual assault, we believe you and we will fight for you. The sham FBI investigation and the bigger sham, this confirmation process, have energized us to fight even harder for our shared vision for a better future for all.”

Now? Cuomo’s press secretary Caitlin Girouard told the Associated Press, “There is simply no truth to these claims.”

But then, treating the accusation as “credible” would be a sharp turn for the Media(D) that has been blowing sunshine up Governor Cuomo’s butt for the past 10 months. Hell, most of them won’t even mention that it was his disastrous policies that caused thousands to needlessly die in nursing homes in his state.

Journalists were pretty easy on Cuomo because he’s a Democrat and therefore “their guy,” but the fawning praise got much, much worse because his brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, set the tone for how Big Bro should be covered in the press.

During ridiculous segments, on his primetime show, Chris was making jokes about his brother’s relationship status.

During the Cuomo Brothers Comedy Hour, fans like Ellen DeGeneres and Stephen Colbert were calling themselves “Cuomosexuals” but that’s probably just another symptom of Stage 4 Trump Derangement Syndrome™.

Before the era of Trump, these sorts of segments were considered inappropriate because it constituted a conflict of interest.

The “Luv Gov” himself was lamenting his “single” status and that despite all of his adoring fans, he hasn’t been out on a date in a while. 

Of course, that might be because he’s constantly wielding his gubernatorial emergency powers and shutting down indoor dinging at restaurants contrary to The Science™ for sh*ts and giggles.

We’ll never know because the Press won’t hold him accountable for anything… even a “credible” accusation of years of sexual harassment by a fellow Democrat.
