Fox News’s Dean says ‘View’ won’t book her over Cuomo criticism

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean called out “The View” on Twitter Tuesday, suggesting she can’t get booked on the show because of her criticisms of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. 

“My publicist asked the @TheView several times if I could come on (to promote my book) but also as someone that could talk about @NYGovCuomo and what I’ve been doing for 10 months to raise awareness and accountability for my husband’s parents’ deaths. Guess what they said?”

She also tweeted that the comments made on Monday’s show about Cuomo by “View” co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin “saying they’d basically rather have criminal @NYGovCuomo than a Republican governor in office makes me sick.”

                                                   

Behar and Hostin made the comments after fellow co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked her Monday for her thoughts on Cuomo’s ability to govern.

“I don’t know the whole story,” Behar said “But it seems to me he’ll have trouble governing under these circumstances. What worries me is if he resigns and fast forward down the line a Republican becomes the governor of New York state a lot of things will happen that I won’t be happy with. I mean, let’s talk about for a second, Cuomo’s good points.”

“I just think it’s interesting that we’re talking every week, feels like practically every day, about Cuomo and asking him to step down and asking him to resign without truly due process, without investigations, which are ongoing, having been held without talking at all about Governor Death-Santis in Florida,” Hostin said, referring to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R).

An ABC spokesperson for “The View” declined to comment on Dean’s tweets or if the show had chosen not to book her for the show.

A spokesperson for Harper Collins, which published Dean’s book “Make Your Own Sunshine: Inspiring Stories of People Who Find Light in Dark Times,” also did not immediately reply to questions about Dean’s comments or if she had requested to be on “The View.”

In the same Twitter thread, Dean also praised “View” co-host Meghan McCain, something she’s done in the past when commenting on the show. 

“I must say that @MeghanMcCain has been trying to shout for months about Cuomo, but when you have all the other women drowning her out and saying NO to her good friend who has been screaming for 10 months, it’s kinda telling where their loyalties are.”
