The F Word
Some people at a certain network don't like labeling:
Blumenthal alleged Trump’s nominee for Supreme Court associate justice Neil Gorsuch had told him he was disheartened by the president’s comments about a judge who ruled to place a stay on his executive order.Somehow, I don't think it's quite the same thing as a racial slur...
Trump had alleged Cuomo failed to question Blumenthal about statements leading up to his 2010 run for the U.S. Senate, apparently misrepresenting his military service.

Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Sen. Blumenthal, never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave "service" in Vietnam. FAKE NEWS!

Cuomo pointed that he had brought up Blumenthal’s misrepresentation and decried Trump’s critique, likening it to be called the “n-word.”
“The only thing that’s bothersome about it is that I see being called ‘fake news’ as the equivalent of the ‘n-word’ for journalists, the equivalent of calling an Italian any of the ugly words that people have for that ethnicity,” Cuomo said. “That’s what fake news is to a journalist.”
