When it comes to Democrats’ media allies, there’s plenty to complain about.

But when one of their own exposes how the game is played, self-proclaimed “journalists” are incredulous.

And now Joe Scarborough’s head nearly exploded after Chris Cuomo blindsided him with this major reality check.

Chris Cuomo was fired from CNN in 2021 after it was revealed that he was secretly colluding with his brother, former New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo, to use his position in media to help the latter’s sexual harassment scandal go away.

Ever since Andrew resigned in disgrace and Chris departed CNN, the Cuomo brothers have made it crystal clear that they have little use for some elected Democrats, including President Joe Biden, and the corporate media that props them up.

That is now making for some uncomfortable revelations about those who would otherwise be political allies.

On his NewsNation broadcast Monday, Chris let loose on the ridiculousness and hypocrisy of married MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski over their hysterical reaction to the news that their network hired former RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel as a paid contributor.

While Cuomo said that he understood the desire not to give McDaniel credibility – he is, after all, still a far-Left Democrat – he found their whining about her hire to be ridiculous given their own role in propping up Donald Trump in 2016 for ratings.

Cuomo:  When it was working for you it was ok, but now your high-minded hypocrisy reeks

Cuomo went straight for the figurative jugular in his comments.

“NBC hires her,” Cuomo said. “I’m sure other people were trying to get her. But now everybody’s mad. Now this happens in the media. Somebody hires somebody that other people would have hired as well, but they attack the place that hired ’em. But this is coming in-house, big shots inside MSNBC, like Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski.”

“Look, I have no beef,” he continued. “But it was okay for you, Mika and Joe, to have Trump on all the time, and to talk to him about what questions to ask, right? When it was working for you, when he was running, right? When you guys were all pals, that was okay, right? You didn’t have any problem with that, right? Just because you went bad on him when it became convenient because you work at a lefty outlet, this is okay, now you can be high-minded about it, right? The hypocrisy reeks.”

“Now you see the bias at play, especially when it comes to Mika and Joe,” he concluded. “I was against them in the morning at CNN and I still beat them, twice. Even with them having Trump on all the time. And you remember the tape that came out of them in break asking Trump about what questions to ask next? And how they were going to do their next segment at the town hall. And nobody got upset about it, it was there and gone because all the reporters want to be on their show in the morning. But now, they have standards about what’s right and what’s wrong. It’s all advantage. It’s all hypocrisy.”

In the end, on this at least, Cuomo is 100% right.

The idea that anything Ronna Romney McDaniel would have said is any less trustworthy than the partisan hackery served up daily by the likes of Jen Psaki, Joy Reid and Rachel Maddow is utter nonsense.

Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough have their woke extremist biases, but the fact that all of that is negotiable if it means self-enrichment speaks volumes about their character.
