In the past year, though, a searing personal loss has transformed her into a fighter for families who believe that a Cuomo-backed policy encouraging the transfer of COVID-19 positive patients into nursing homes was a deadly error.
Margaret Sullivan: “For years, CNN had a sensible policy about whether Chris Cuomo could interview his older brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Simply put: He couldn’t.

An announcement that the state Public Service Commission had again delayed a vote on the $45 billion Time Warner Cable-Comcast merger doesn’t actually mean that the merger is in trouble in New York.
