This is so devastating that I almost feel like it’s unfair:
Of New Day, which had its one year anniversary last month, Cuomo admitted it “has to grow, it has to get better,” but he said it’s “a good show that is based on the understanding of taking what matters seriously but not taking ourselves seriously.”
On top of that, he said it is “significantly challenging Morning Joe for the mandate of having the smartest show on cable television, and I want that mantle.”
There you go. Morning Joe is “the smartest show on cable television,” but CNN’s morning show is challenging for the title. If that’s not a reason to get rid of the entire enterprise of cable TV, I don’t know what is.
Note that he does not mention perennial ratings leader Fox & Friends in this equation.
You don’t say?
