Fredo's Epiphany

'Cuomo The Younger'

I'm not sure if he has fully recovered or not or just in a fever dream of some kind, but it seems Andrew Cuomo too has come to the same conclusion most of us did long ago - Why in hell are you on television??

According to the New York Post, 'Cuomo the Younger' said his battle with COVID-19 has made him rethink his values and question his position as a public figure. Fredo took to the radio mic Monday and trashed his nightly primetime CNN gig.
“I don’t like what I do professionally, trafficking in things that I think are ridiculous. Like talking to Democrats about things that I don’t really believe they mean and talking to Republicans about them parroting things they feel they have to say. 
I don’t think it’s worth my time. I don’t want to spend my time doing things that I don’t think are valuable enough to me personally. I don’t value indulging irrationality, hyper-partisanship.”
Personally I suspect watching 'Cuomo The Elder' on the tube everyday giving his coronavirus press briefing, projecting an image of a respected voice and popular politician, not a ridiculed host masquerading as journalist of a basement rated opinion show on an embarrassment of a news network, has done a number on Fredo's head.  I suspect he also spent some of his time alone the basement binge watching the other networks and realized how utterly ridiculous the media sounds as nothing but a verbal hit squad.  He also said he wants to stop analyzing the president, “Who we all know is full of shit by design.”

Fredo said he has to tolerate other people’s opinions of himself and it’s just not worth it to him anymore. (I hope we didn't hurt his feelings).
“I don’t think it's worth it to me because I don’t think I mean enough, I don’t think I matter enough, I don’t think I can really change anything, so then what am I really doing?” 
“I’m basically being perceived as successful in a system that I don’t value,” he continued. “I’m seen as being good at being on TV and advocating for different positions… but I don’t know if I value those things...."
Then again, you can't be employed by CNN and also be part of  a Presidential Campaign when your brother is drafted to replace Joey B. now can you???
