Don’t Call Me Fredo!

CNN is suffering horribly from a credibility crisis. It’s audience shriveled in the second quarter of 2019 with its primetime shows finishing as the 15th most-watched network on basic cable behind networks such as TLC, Investigation Discovery and the Hallmark Channel according to TV Newser.  “Cuomo Prime Time” averaged a dismal 910,000 viewers.

The cratering ratings and the persistent “CNN sucks” memes have taken their toll on anchor Chris Cuomo who was caught on video “flying into an abject rage” at a man for calling him “Fredo” at a bar in Shelter Island, NY on Sunday.

The “Fredo” moniker is a reference to Fredo Corleone, the weak, dopey brother in the iconic Mario Puzo mafia crime film The Godfather.

"Punk-ass bitches on the right call me Fredo. Fredo was from The Godfather. He was a weak brother. And they use it as an Italian aspersion. Are any of you Italian? Are you Italian? It's a fucking insult to your people. It's an insult to your fucking people.  Is that a cool fucking thing?"

The other man in the video then mockingly tells Cuomo that he is "a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television," to which Cuomo responds, "If you want to play, we'll fucking play."

"You're gonna have a fucking problem. It's a little different on TV. Don't fucking insult me like that. You called me Fredo, like I call you punk bitch."

Taking off his glasses, the other man says, "I don't have a problem, man," but then Cuomo reiterates that he is going to "ruin your shit" and "fucking throw you down these stairs like a fucking punk."
