According to CNN’s Chris Cuomo, it is the media’s job to serve as the “opposition” to President-elect Donald Trump’s incoming administration.
On CNN’s New Day Wednesday morning, Cuomo vowed to oppose Trump’s policies, and stated he feels it is the job of the media as a whole to treat the next president of the United States with hostility.
Per Cuomo, “The media cannot yield. This administration is going to demand constant fact-checking and opposition.”

Cuomo made his comments during a discussion with New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota and CNN political director David Chalian.

Chalian was previously employed as the Washington bureau chief for Yahoo News, but was fired by the company in 2012 after he was caught on a hot-mic saying that Republican Party officials did not care if black people died during Hurricane Isaac.
The RNC held its 2012 convention in Tampa, as the powerful and unpredictable storm hugged the state’s western coast.
During a live web broadcast, Chalian said Republicans were “not concerned at all. They’re happy to have a party with black people drowning.”
Chalian was promptly hired by CNN less than a year later, and promoted to political director in 2014.
