Dean, a Fox meteorologist, transforms into a ferocious Cuomo critic.

 

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is a liar and a rapist, according to Janice Dean of Fox News Channel. Others are to blame for his “disastrous actions,” he says. He must quit — but that isn’t enough.

“It’s time for him to go to jail!” On “Fox & Friends,” she rumbled.

Dean is Fox’s senior meteorologist, not a political analyst. However, a devastating personal tragedy has turned her into a fierce advocate for families who claim that a Cuomo-backed initiative promoting the relocation of COVID-19 positive patients to nursing homes was a fatal mistake.

Meghan McCain of “The View,” who worked with Dean at Fox News, said, “She just hates when people are messed with and… always has fought for the little guy.”

McCain is well-versed in politics, and he believes her friend has a future in it.

Cuomo has justified his actions, claiming that they were based on scientific principles. His office did not respond to requests for comment on Dean.

Dean, on the other hand, has made some dubious public statements about the implications of Cuomo’s nursing home order and the coverage provided by another news organization. Fox’s newfound position raises ethical concerns.

Jeffrey McCall, a media ethics professor at DePauw University, said, “She is definitely a passionate and articulate spokesperson on this matter.” “However, it is obvious that Janice is using her position as a Fox News Channel host to advocate.”

New York was a nightmare in March and April 2020, with the new coronavirus spreading like wildfire. The timing was particularly cruel for Michael and Dolores Newman, the parents of Dean’s husband, Sean, affectionately known as Mickey and Dee by family and friends. They married three days before Valentine’s Day in 1961, and they were born and raised in Brooklyn.

Mickey, an 83-year-old former firefighter, was suffering from dementia and other problems at the Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Brooklyn. Dee was a resident of the Long Island Living Center’s assisted living facility, and she hoped Mickey would join her once his health improved.

However, he died on March 29, just hours after Sean received a call from him saying he wasn’t feeling good. Dee, 79, passed away on April 13th.

As the family began investigating the deaths, they were astounded to learn of the Cuomo administration’s March 25 order that nursing homes should not refuse admission to those with COVID-19 simply because they had it. On April 7, the policy was extended to include assisted living facilities.

At the time, New York was very concerned about running out of hospital rooms. Cuomo maintained that precautions were taken and that discrimination against people with COVID was false.

By Can, the order had been revoked. The governor and his staff went to great lengths to hide the number of virus deaths among New York nursing home residents, according to reports. Dean couldn’t believe the vulnerable had been placed in such a dangerous situation.

At first, she didn’t say anything about it in public. That changed after seeing Chris Cuomo brandish a giant cotton swab to mock his brother, Governor Andrew Cuomo, on CNN in May.

 

She expressed her anger in a text message to her friend Tucker Carlson, who invited her to say her story on his show the next night.

She hasn’t slowed down.

Dean was swimming against the current. Cuomo was well-liked, and his televised coronavirus briefings drew praise from those who disapproved of then-President Donald Trump’s results. He also wrote a leadership book.

Things have changed now that a sexual harassment controversy has engulfed him. Dean’s contempt for Cuomo was on show last month when she used Twitter to hold a running commentary during one of his press conferences.

“He has a dry mouth. He’s jittery. He’s also lying.”

“He is nothing but a disgrace.”

“You are a thief.”

Dean was crucial in keeping the problem alive, according to Bill Hammond, senior fellow for health policy at the Empire Center for State Policy.

“She draws attention because she has a certain kind of fame, and she has access to the bullhorn of Fox News, which is a powerful force,” Hammond said.

Dean has been with Fox since 2004, and on “Fox & Friends,” he is the weather forecaster. She’s revealed her family’s story to the show’s hosts, including Carlson, Sean Hannity, Martha MacCallum, Harris Faulkner, and others, on the radio.

The tale hit a perfect spot for Fox. Here was a topic that posed serious questions about a politician lionized by many liberals for an audience dominated by conservatives tired of hearing Trump blamed for his pandemic response.

According to Kathleen Bartzen Culver, director of the University of Wisconsin’s Center for Journalism Ethics, “many news media have successfully used personal experiences of workers to report stories about the pandemic.”

When the personal becomes political, she says, it becomes an issue. Journalists are typically prohibited from participating in politics.

Dean spoke to young Republicans in Staten Island at a rally organized by Democratic Assemblyman Ron Kim, another Cuomo critic, during a virtual town hall sponsored by the state GOP chairman.

Fox refused to make a senior executive available to discuss Dean. Dean is not a news writer, according to a spokesperson, and is speaking about a subject that has had a significant impact on her family.

Dean claims that her Fox bosses have been fully supportive.

“Obviously, it’s an awkward place for them because I’m the meteorologist and all of a sudden I’m thrust into this job of being an advocate,” she explained. “However, my family was impacted at the end of the day. And I believe that if there are no people who have a voice in this, that is an important role to play.”
Andrew Cuomo is covered in detail.

She wrote a report for Fox News three days before Valentine’s Day last month titled “Cuomo’s COVID nursing home policies robbed my in-laws of their 60th wedding anniversary.”

“Their death warrant was signed as an executive order by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to bring contaminated patients into the places where our most vulnerable resided,” she wrote, emphasizing the connection.

Mickey Newman died four days after Cuomo’s order was released at Grandell. According to the CDC, the average time between exposure to the virus and the onset of symptoms is five days. Although being sick enough to die within four days of exposure isn’t impossible, it’s extremely unlikely, according to Dr. David Boulware, an infectious disease and foreign medicine professor at the University of Minnesota.

Dee died six days after the state order for assisted living facilities went into effect.

Nobody knows how Dean’s in-laws contracted the virus, and their deaths are tragic. Other data, such as staff or visitors, suggests transmission originated from someone other than patients transferred to their facilities at the state’s request.

Donna Johnson, Dean’s sister-in-law, said, “We don’t know the story.” “You make an attempt to inquire. Nobody actually responds to you.”

The Associated Press was unable to obtain information about the Newmans from the facilities.

Meanwhile, families are wary of the Cuomo administration’s attempts to keep data confidential, divert responsibility for outbreaks at nursing homes, and dismiss concerns about whether the state’s policies exacerbated any outbreaks.

Cuomo recently reported that the withheld data created a “hole” that exposed angry and perplexed New Yorkers to “conspiracy theories” and misinformation. “People become perplexed, and family members who have lost loved ones in nursing homes tend to wonder if this is real. “I wonder if my father died as a result of a blunder,” he speculated.

On Jan. 30, Dean took to Twitter to criticize NBC News and anchor Lester Holt, claiming that they had “censored” a friend who had been interviewed on the subject by forcing her to state that New York had failed nursing home families rather than Cuomo. The Associated Press received a tape of reporter Kristen Dahlgren’s interview from NBC, which refutes the argument. Dean claims the tape was tampered with, but he provides no evidence to back up his claim.

The story does not support the notion that NBC was attempting to defend Cuomo. Dahlgren cites Dean’s friend Dawn Best as saying that a “third-grader” should know not to place COVID-19 patients in nursing homes, with Cuomo clearly in mind. Best can also be seen carrying a sign that reads, “Cuomo murdered my mother.”

Others, however, do not dismiss the possibility of a democratic future.

McCain said, “The best people who go into politics come at it organically, like people who haven’t been running for office their whole lives.” Dean “has this very convincing way of thinking for only ordinary Americans.” I’m one of the people who has been pushing her to run for office behind the scenes.”

“I don’t like being a part of this political shambles with the governor right now,” Dean said. However, I believe it is a calling. “Yes, I do.”
