Accuracy in Media

CNN is struggling to cover the various scandals that are engulfing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported that top advisers to Cuomo successfully convinced state health officials to alter data from a COVID-19 nursing home report that showed deaths were far larger than the numbers the state had reported earlier.

While the network covered the report Friday morning, the website didn’t post a story until 11 am ET, more than 12 hours after the Journal report appeared online.

By contrast, the New York Times reported on the Journal story Thursday night.

CNN’s verified Twitter account was even slower and didn’t mention the report until 2 p.m. ET on Friday.
