Fox Host Thinks NY Times Is Doing Hillary’s ‘Bidding’ by Not Endorsing Cuomo

On Tuesday, The New York Times editorial board announced that it would not be endorsing Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) in his upcoming primary bid because of his “failure” to enact meaningful ethics reform. But Fox News host Andrea Tantaros thinks the paper declined to endorse Cuomo for a very different reason.

While Tantaros admitted that Cuomo “has had some shady ethics,” she wondered aloud, “Isn’t it interesting? Do you think they could be doing the bidding of, oh, I don’t know, Hillary Clinton to take out somebody who could potentially be a dark horse for 2016? I do.”

On a related note, Tantaros suggested that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was refusing to financially support New York’s Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino because he’s “covering” for Cuomo. “I hope not,” she said.

By Tantaros’ logic, if The New York Times wants to help Hillary Clinton by hurting Andrew Cuomo, then it would only make sense that Christie would want to hurt Clinton by helping Cuomo.
