Description

When New York was the epicenter of the pandemic in the United States, Gov. Andrew Cuomo emerged as a singular, strong leader. Now his leadership is embattled, particularly over the extent of deaths in nursing homes during the peak.

Today, in the first of two parts on what went wrong in New York's nursing homes, we look at the crisis through the eyes of a woman, Lorry Sullivan, who lost her mother in a New York nursing home.

Guest: Amy Julia Harris, an investigative reporter on The New York Times’s Metro desk.

Oh, the NYT finally decides to report on this almost a year after all this information was known. Joe Rogan was talking about this in May 2020. Rogan! so was Shapiro. Now that this story doesn't have an effect on an election you try to act all surprised and high and mighty breaking this story. If you would have integrity you would have reported on this right away and actually saved lives. Don't pretend to care about these people now. You only care about your political agenda.
