Meteorologist Janice Dean, one of Fox News’ most beloved personalities, was front-and-center in the fight to expose former Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and his role in the deaths of tens of thousands of elderly New York patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Fox News, Dean reportedly made an enemy in the disgraced former governor’s brother, the now-terminated CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who apparently referred to Dean as a “weather b***h” during discussions with the former governor’s staff as Cuomo used his inside connections to try and help his brother squirm out of multiple scandals.
Most Fox viewers know that Dean was especially passionate about Gov. Cuomo’s nursing home scandal and overall mishandling of the pandemic in New York in 2020, as she lost both of her in-laws last year after they contracted the deadly virus while stuck in a nursing home under Gov. Cuomo’s orders.
Since that time, Dean made it a top priority to help expose the disgraced ex-governor for all of the fatal mistakes he made over the course of the pandemic.
The New York Post just broke a bombshell story that alleges Chris Cuomo, who was fired from the network after it was revealed that broke ethical lines in trying to help his creepy brother, made Dean a top target during the course of the investigations that unfolded into his brother’s sexual misconduct scandal.
“The source said Chris allegedly asked in a text to an Andrew Cuomo staffer how he could go after ‘this Fox weather b***h……Any help painting her as a far right crazy?’” the report noted.
In addition, it was reported that it was “believed he participated in calls with the governor’s staff, including Melissa DeRosa, about how to hit back at Dean by focusing on her political leanings.”
Unsurprisingly, the former governor’s spokesperson, Rich Azzopardi, denied that such a conversation or attack on Dean ever happened, though a separate CNBC report indicated that insiders said it did, in fact, happen as reported.
“I have no knowledge of this ever happening, and you must ask, why then did the attorney general not put anything about it in her report or ask any of the relevant people about it?” Azzopardi fired back.
