As we told you earlier, Vox founder and New York Times opinion columnist Ezra Klein called out the New York-based media for their soft — if not outright fawning — coverage of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s handling of the COVID19 pandemic:
I raged about this at the time but New York's early COVID response was poor. There were better governors and better state policies but the media is based in New York and NYC was a disaster so Cuomo's news conferences got media attention no other governor could touch.
