On the Megyn Kelly Show podcast on Monday, Fox News Senior meteorologist Janice Dean claimed that if she worked at CNN or another network, she would be treated differently.
Dean was reacting to reports that CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was trying to dig up dirt to discredit her as she tried to bring attention to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D)’s policy of putting COVID-positive nursing home patients back into facilities where they then infected other patients and staff.
It’s “not just Chris Cuomo, by the way, the blue checks and reporters,” Dean said. “I’ve had many reporters want to do this story, and when they do, instead of the main focus being a meteorologist who had a terrible atrocity happen within her family, two family members close to her dying in New York nursing homes and her trying to find answers and accountability, it’s always, but she works at Fox News. So she must have voted for Trump.”
“I think to myself, Megyn, what if I worked at another channel? What if I worked over at CNN and we found out that Tucker Carlson was trying to do oppo research on me and trying to find out who I voted for or if there [were] any problems with maybe the husband’s record with the FDNY . . . It would be quite a different story, I think, if I worked at another network,” she concluded.
I suspect that Dean is not very conservative, or it wouldn’t have taken her this long to figure out how the media works.
