    I watch his show on occasion, and I have never heard him say 10 times an hour that he has the #1 show on CNN. Why make up sh!t?

    He isn't a Fredo at all. His success is due to his father not his brother. Totally different.

    1) Get an XM subscription
    2) Listen to his radio show
    3) Come back and tell me about lies

    He does it all the time...#1 show on CNN...whatever.

    Why assume because you watch his TV show every once in a while that you know shit?

    I also listen to his radio show on occasion. He often says that he runs #3 behind Hannity and Maddow. He is not a particularly arrogant person. As a matter of fact, he is constantly telling his guests that they are smarter than him. I also appreciate the fact that he is relatively independent, and he is on both political parties cases over what is going on at the border.

    I have zero knowledge of Chris Cuomo until this incident.
    The joy of no tv.

    If you actually had listened to his radio show with any frequency, then I don't know how you can say he isn't always mentioning his CNN show and ratings and occasionally goes of on what a badass he is. He does it constantly. I think the first time I heard his show he was talking about whether he could beat up Don Lemon and I was like WTF is this given the usual POTUS content. Like I said, I don't think he's bad when he's actually talking about politics but he also has issues.

    I think he is also passing on the testosterone supplements base on his physique.

    Cuomo's feeble attempt to offset his Fredo with Sonny.

    It's not the language I think that gets most people.

    It's the threatening of the heckler and equating "Fredo" to the "N-Word."

    I get Cuomo, here, and understand getting pissed off for being harassed, especially being with his family. But he overreacted...

    Not grounds for getting fired... not even grounds to be a public conversation for more than a couple of days.

    On a side note, this whole incident was actually pretty funny. Shouldn't be encouraged, but it was kind of funny. :D That was masterful level trolling on the heckler's part... but he shouldn't do that.

    Cuomo is a jerk. But I have no issue with him going at that guy hard. If you want to insult a man to his face, you better be ready to stand toe to toe. Don't play the victim when he responds.

    I agree it's the baggage that comes with being a public figure...

    But as a society, we should be better than this... Let people be with their family and enjoy life without constant stares and harassment...

    It's not cool...

    It's a no-no...

    This one incident happened to be funny, IMO... but that doesn't make it okay...

    I am not watching cable news of any type. I'm not missing it. It's gone down the crapper. MSNBC and CNN are doing their best Fox News impressions instead of honest reporting. Pass.

    Let's keep things in perspective, here...

    Cuomo went ballistic because some random guy called him, "Fredo."

    That's it...

    Basically every middle school kid in America probably deals with worse on a daily basis...
