Andrew Cuomo called his brother Chris Cuomo a ‘meatball’
March 31st, 2020 under TV News. [ Comments: none ]

As much as we look forward to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s daily tough love press briefings, we can’t wait for him to be on his brother’s CNN Prime Time show. Yesterday, he was on Chris Cuomo’s show and they were bickering again.

Chris bragged how their mom taught him how to make her spaghetti sauce, and Andrew said he had to work back then like now. Then the governor called his brother a “meatball.” To which Chris responded by saying it is a compliment in Italian families. It isn’t, but let him believe that.

Andrew also gave his brother crap for doing his show from his basement. A place Andrew says that Chris’ wife Christina banishes him to a lot.

Talking about white rooms, Chris wanted to know if Andrew is considering moving to the White House. Is he? In one word, “NO!”

Sadly, this morning Chris got a yes, he did not want. He wrote, “S00000 in these difficult times that seem to get more difficult and complicated by the day, I just found out that I am positive for corona virus. I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fever, chills and shortness of breath. I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness! I am quarantined in my basement (which actually makes the rest of the family seem pleased!) I will do my shows from here. We will all beat this by being smart and tough and united!

Get well soon, Chris.


This reporter is not messing around!

KTVM’s Deion Broxton was shooting a standup outside Yellowstone National Park, and there was no way he was going to mess with what was coming at him. What made him run like a group of people with Coronaavirus were coming at him like hungry Zombies? He was running away from a herd of bison. I can’t say I blame him because I would do the same.

Now that we got that out of the way, his facial expressions deserve an Emmy. I worked in hard news for a lot of years, and I never saw a reporter look as terrified as he did. I actually saw a friend of mine holding a tree while flying in the air during a tropical storm, and he showed less of a reaction than this Montana reporter.

I hope some station in a bigger market, where there are no bison, offers him a job! He has earned it!

The World’s favorite viral family is back and the kids are just as rambunctious!
March 26th, 2020 under TV News. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 2017, Professor Robert Kelly became an international sensation when his wife and two kids interrupted his live interview with the BBC. Now three years later, they are back, and this time his wife Jung-a Kim and their kids Marion and James are part of the interview.

Did it go any better now that they were allowed to be in the room with their father? Marvelous Marion still wants her daddy to give her all of his attention, and he calmly tries to keep her under control. Thus, the answer is no.

That is why we love them so much. Thank you to BBC’s Scott Bryan for bringing them back in a time when we need them most!


This has to be the 💩tiest place for a reporter to do a standup
March 25th, 2020 under TV News. [ Comments: none ]

Reporters do standups from the 💩tiest locations, but WNEP’s Scott Schaffer did one a sitdown from the 💩tiest place of them all. He did one inside a closed portapotty.

The anchor hosts a weekly segment called Talkback Feedback, and he came up with an interesting place to film it this week. I wonder how quickly he regretted that decision. Even it didn’t spell like piss and poop; the cleaning products are just as bad. So nasty and gross!

When I worked in Miami, I judged the local Emmys for news, and I would so give this guy the award. In fact, we did! Which is why I was not allowed to judge them again.


The Cuomo brothers are at it again!
March 24th, 2020 under Politics, TV News. [ Comments: none ]
Last week, Chris Cuomo called out his brother Governor Andrew Cuomo for not calling their mother on the telephone. Even though he spoke to her just before that interview.

The Governor of NY has even spoken to her since. Yesterday, when Chris thanked his big brother for being on CNN’s New Day again, Andrew said, “Mom told me I had to.” The little bro responded with an eye roll that even Anderson Cooper would bow down to.

I love that even though Andrew is 62 and Chis is 49, they still bicker like when they were 5 and 18. Well, you know what I mean. That is why their sisters are mom’s favorites.

If Andrew is ever out of office, then CNN has to give them a show together where they fight all the time. It would be ratings gold.
