(JustPatriots.com)- After CNN fired controversial “news” anchor Chris Cuomo for using his media influence to help his brother, former Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo, during his recent sexual harassment scandal, anchor Michael Smerconish stepped in to cover his slots.
And during a recent episode of The Michael Smerconish Show on SiriusXM, the CNN anchor said that he recently bumped into Dr. Mehmet Oz, the Republican Senate candidate in California. He described how he didn’t think that Oz had any idea who he was.
A popular and frequent face on Fox News, Dr. Oz regularly comments on the state of the COVID-19 pandemic and government restrictions and is now in full campaign mode in the run up to the Republican primary for the Pennsylvania Senate election.
Smerconish described how he asked Oz to come on his CNN or SiriusXM show to present his case to what he described as a “moderate” audience.
The Fox audience isn’t moderate? Give us a break, Smerconish. CNN hasn’t been moderate in years.
He told his radio audience that he asked Dr. Oz to come on and promised to treat him with “dignity and respect.”
If you have to promise to treat someone with respect, you’re basically admitting that people know you don’t do that anyway.
He said that Oz very quickly declined his offer, saying, “I can’t possibly do that because it would upset everybody at Fox.”
TC Scornavacchi, Smerconish’s producer, then allegedly told Oz that he had lost her vote – though anyone could very easily say that. Is a producer for a left-wing radio host really going to vote for a Republican?
