The media is in panic mode over the Andrew Cuomo scandal that’s unfolding in slow motion. After months of covering for him, the evidence is becoming too great for the coverup.
Now, a third woman has come forward, accusing Cuomo of threats and harassment.
The New York Post reports:
A former New York journalist claims the “damaging” harassment and “personal attacks” she faced by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration was one of the reasons that led her to quit her job.
Lindsay Nielsen, in a post to Twitter Sunday, said she left Albany-based News10 ABC following the alleged “threatening” tactics and “incessant bullying” she endured by the governor’s office.

As PJ Media notes:
If you’re a regular reader of PJ Media, you’ve never been under the misapprehension that Andrew Cuomo is a good governor or even a good human being. You know that he completely botched New York’s response to COVID-19, condemning at least 11,000 senior citizens to a horrible death by sending sick people into nursing homes, and then he lied about it. You know how ridiculous it is that Cuomo published an entire book about how well he handled the coronavirus, which is the most insane gaslighting imaginable. You know that he’s a bully and a liar and a thug. And you know that, for the past year, he’s been aided and abetted by the mainstream media.
But now, after a full year of gaslighting us about Cuomo, our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters have suddenly turned on him. First they “discovered” Cuomo’s ineptitude and corruption in the nursing home scandal, a mere nine months after the Daily Caller broke the story. Then Lindsey Boylan, one of Cuomo’s former aides, accused him of sexually harassing her and even cornering her in his office for an unwanted kiss. Then another former aide, Charlotte Bennett, also claimed he propositioned her.
We’ve known that Cuomo is a slimebag and a massive failure as a governor for months now. But an even deeper scandal was exposed by this whole mess – the national media’s complicity in Cuomo’s con.
The reality is that conservative news outlets were blowing the whistle on Cuomo for months, and no one listened. Then, when the scandal grew too great to cover up, the media tried to jump on the bandwagon and pose as “truth-tellers.”
They are the opposite of truth-tellers. And their belated turn against Cuomo is just another lie they’re telling the American people. Right now, you can guarantee they’re covering for other monsters, and they’ll do it as long as they can get away with it.
