New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has won an Emmy for his leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and “his masterful use of television to inform and calm people around the world,”….The state of New York has the most COVID deaths in the nation.
13% of all US deaths of COVID comes from New York State alone but that doesn’t matter to the progressive propagandists of Hollywood. A press release from the Academy states:
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo of New York will receive this year’s International Emmy® Founders Award, in recognition of his leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and his masterful use of television to inform and calm people around the world. The Emmy® will be presented to Governor Cuomo during the Academy’s live, International Emmy® Awards show streaming at 11 AM ET, on the Academy’s website www.iemmys.tv, on November 23.
“The Governor’s 111 daily briefings worked so well because he effectively created television shows, with characters, plot lines, and stories of success and failure,” said International Academy President & CEO, Bruce L. Paisner. “People around the world tuned in to find out what was going on, and New York tough became a symbol of the determination to fight back.”
Cuomo also published a book last month touting his leadership during the pandemic that was protested by grieving families of the over 33,000 people who died in his state.
The freighting new normal celebrates people failures as heroes as long as they are in the correct political party.
