It literally does not matter how much Fox News does to show that they’re a serious news network, it will never be enough to appease the hall monitors at CNN.
Earlier today as House impeachment managers were showing more deceptive, emotionally manipulative videos during the Senate impeachment trial, Fox News tweeted out a link for people to click on to view their livestreaming coverage:
WATCH NOW: Democrats share more videos from Capitol riot on Day 3 of Trump impeachment trial https://t.co/9G7QXhrsmO
— Fox News (@FoxNews) February 11, 2021
There was nothing wrong with the tweet whatsoever, except to CNN’s resident tough guy Chris Cuomo, who apparently had nothing better to do than take cheap shots at a competitor in the middle of a pandemic (their rules):

Investigating election fraud allegations and claims about the Capitol riots is not “playing” anything down or up. It’s actually what’s called “journalism”, which explains why someone like Chris Cuomo who puts more emphasis on lifting weights than elevating the conversation wouldn’t understand.
In any event, people who remember CNN giving fawning coverage of Chris Cuomo’s big brother Andrew while ignoring his catastrophic handling of the pandemic in his state – especially the nursing home scandal – were quick to remind him of that after seeing his attempted dunk on Fox News:
Remember @ChrisCuomo softballs & joking with his bro the governor as thousands of elderly died thanks to Andrew ordering COVID-infected into nursing homes. Remember the giant Q-tip. Remember Chris grilling his bro on being 'single & ready to mingle'.

Elderly New Yorkers were dying alone in nursing homes because of your brother’s staggering incompetence while you two were having a good laugh about the whole situation. #Remember pic.twitter.com/mz95jvEeVo

There were also the instances where Chris Cuomo gaslit viewers over the BLM/Antifa-led riots, in some cases encouraged them, and threatened to beat someone up for calling him out for breaking quarantine:
You compared antifa rioters to d-day soldiers you hypocritical hack!! https://t.co/oFikuNshCs

Remember you went out with COVID and tried to fight an elderly man because he called u out.

Remember when this guy played down riots and asked where it is in the Constitution that says "protests are supposed to be polite and peaceful?" @ComfortablySmug https://t.co/lPeLjSWfxr pic.twitter.com/FIwOskPivO

Given what you did last summer you should sit this one out https://t.co/w8KrpFnY65

Hey Chris, here’s a friendly tip: When it comes to a network supposedly “downplaying” serious issues (like your brother’s deadly mishandling of the COVID crisis) and “playing up” situations that can turn violent and deadly (like the BLM/Antifa riots), you might want to take Ryan Keefer’s advice and sit the next round out, bro. Because your credibility to call anyone out on those matters stands at just about zero.
