Former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo found himself in a fierce debate with GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy on Monday. Tensions flared as Ramaswamy did not mince words, accusing the mainstream media, and Cuomo in particular, of being biased and divisive.
Ramaswamy has been a vocal critic of the media’s role in political discourse, asserting that establishment outlets have been peddling falsehoods to the American populace.
During the third Republican presidential debate, Ramaswamy slammed the fake news media and questioned the decision to have far-left NBC, Kristen Welker and Lester Holt host a Republican debate.

The political temperature soared on Monday’s broadcast of News Nation when GOP presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy unleashed a barrage of critiques toward show host Chris Cuomo. The debate turned personal and politically charged as Ramaswamy took aim at Cuomo and what he termed the “Establishment media.”
Chris Cuomo: Why do you keep going at Nikki Haley? Why do you think this is going to bear fruit?
Vivek Ramaswamy: Chris, I don’t know what you’ve been smoking, man. You and the rest of the mainstream media is laughable. Nikki Haley has been going after me the whole campaign: first debate, second debate. You know, she’s been trailing me for much of the time. But I realize the establishment media has realized that there’s a puppet they want to put up. I’m not playing that game. The grassroots of this country want a leader who isn’t going to send us, our sons and daughters, to go die in foreign wars that racked up 7 trillion in debt. Dick Cheney 2.0 has taken over the GOP. The problem is the Democratic establishment media is now rooting for war too. I’m the only candidate speaking for a true America First agenda on that debate stage, and I think we’re going to be successful.
Chris Cuomo: Vivek,
