CNN’s Chris Cuomo: ‘Mueller Didn’t Do the Media Any Favors Tonight and He Did Do the President One’

CNN’s Chris Cuomo tonight said that the statement from Robert Mueller‘s office disputing BuzzFeed’s report basically did the President a big favor.

In speaking with former acting solicitor general Neal Katyal, Cuomo said the following:

“Mueller didn’t do the media any favors tonight and he did do the President one, because as you saw with Rudy Giuliani and as I’m sure you’ll see with the president himself, this allows them to say, ‘You can’t believe it. You can’t believe what you read, you can’t believe what you hear, you can only believe us. Even the special counsel says that the media doesn’t get it right.'”

Earlier tonight on CNN Jeffrey Toobin said this was a bad night for the news media.
