Why Does CNN Keep Letting This Guy Pretend to Be a Journalist? Chris Cuomo Lies About Ted Cruz.

Chris Cuomo is yet again playing at partisan hackery on Twitter.

By Erick Erickson

He spends his mornings pretending to be fair until someone actually points out he has no clue what he is talking about. And then he gets on Twitter and makes a fool of himself.

Right now he is bloviating about Ted Cruz and hurricane spending.

Actually Chris, it was true and Cruz was not alone in his opposition.

The Hurricane Sandy relief package included over $100 million for Alaska fisheries, well outside the impact zone of Sandy.

It included $41 million for various military bases not impacted by Sandy.

It even included $2 million for the Smithsonian’s Washington facilities that were not impacted by Sandy. And that’s not all.

In fact, the Obama Administration only wanted $61 million for Hurricane Sandy relief and the total legislation came close to topping $200 million. Hurricane Sandy relief turned out to be one of the smaller line items in the Hurricane Sandy relief package.

But God forbid you actually get your facts straight when you can use it to attack Ted Cruz.
