This week, prominent progressive elected officials publicly credited The Daily Poster’s work for challenging New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and breaking open one of the biggest corruption scandals in America. We want to keep doing this work — but we need your help.
We need free subscribers to click here to become supporting subscribers right now to help us expand on the impact we’re having.
In case you missed it: While corporate media outlets spent last year lauding Cuomo, The Daily Poster has been investigating how Cuomo helped major industry donors shield nursing home executives from legal consequences, and then withheld information about thousands of nursing home deaths. This isn’t just a New York story — as The Daily Poster first reported, Cuomo’s corporate immunity law subsequently went national.
This scandal is now engulfing New York as Cuomo reportedly faces a federal law enforcement probe — and our reporting has been a big part of exposing the back-room machinations. You don’t have to believe me about that. Believe Assemblyman Ron Kim, the New York Democratic lawmaker who is now allegedly facing retribution from Cuomo for demanding answers about the questions our stories raised:
Another New York Democratic lawmaker demanding answers also publicly thanked The Daily Poster “for continuously asking for the numbers and covering what is happening in our nursing homes and hospitals and keeping us informed.”
