First day Iceman and Golden Girl into Sunset Beach Shelter Island… Front page Drudge..

CNN’s Chris Cuomo erupted at a man in public who apparently called him “Fredo,” in a wild moment caught on video that went viral Monday night.

The encounter between Cuomo and the man happened at a Shelter Island bar — that appears to be Sunset Beach — on Sunday. The video, surreptitiously filmed by the man Cuomo was shouting at, was uploaded to Twitter by a user who said he was sent the clip.

“Punk-ass bitches from the right call me Fredo,” Cuomo told the man, who claimed he thought the CNN anchor was named Fredo. “My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN. Fredo is from The Godfather.”

“They use it as an Italian aspersion. Any of you Italian?” Cuomo continued. “It’s an insult to your fucking people. It’s like the N-word for us.”

They went back and forth, and at one point Cuomo said, “I’ll fucking ruin your shit. I’ll fucking throw you down these stairs like a fucking punk.”

A CNN spokesperson told Mediaite in a statement, “Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him.”

Cuomo is receiving support from outside CNN as well. His 9 p.m. rival at Fox News, Sean Hannity, tweeted “good for [Cuomo]” in response to the video. “He’s out with his 9 year old daughter, and his wife, and this guy is being a jackass in front of his family,” Hannity wrote. “Imho Chris Cuomo has zero to apologize for. He deserves the apology.”

Cuomo is off air this week, but he will return on Monday. CNN told Mediaite his vacation was pre-planned.

Left-Wing Media Pushing False Narrative Against Trump

Ely Erlich in a recent online article posed the question: “Is Donald Trump a bad president or does the media exaggerate his faults?”

Erlich argues that the media is in fact pushing a false narrative. He used as his argument the coverage CNN and NYT gave to a press conference in the White House where the President hosted people from throughout the world sharing their stories about the religious persecution they had experience.

CNN-NYT pushed the narrative the President was unfeeling, and racist in his dealings with a young Yazidi Christian, who had been raped and watched members of her family massacred.  The news story said the President did not know her story. However the reason for the conference was to allow the woman and the others present to tell their stories to the global media, allowing them a voice, highlighting the injustices they had suffered. Attendees to the event praised the President for his work in this area, and the opportunity to share their stories. However, CNN and NYT turned the story into an attack on the President.

Hackers Can Access iPhone Via Text

Silvanovich became interested in researching interaction-less bugs when studying a similar vulnerability in What’s App.

Chinese Religious Freedom at a 40-Year Low

A new report published on Thursday has concluded that religious freedom has hit a 40-year low in China.

The communist state has imposed strict laws controlling religious freedom since the Communist Party took power in 1949. However, in recent years things have become worse for people of faith in China.

China has persecuted its Uighur Muslim population in Xinjiang, but also Buddhists, Jews and Christians.

Churches in China have seen buildings destroyed, bibles confiscated and an increase in believers being imprisoned for their faith.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has particularly targeted the underground church movement in China, which has seen phenomenal growth over the last two decades.
