New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) has faced mounting calls for him to resign amidst sexual assault allegations. The calls have ranged from prominent Republicans to Democrats like New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D), who called for Cuomo to be investigated.

Though some critics have argued that the mainstream media is upholding a double standard by not covering the Governor and his allegations, there are others that argue that the media is focusing too much on Cuomo. This week, Sunny Hostin from the View slammed networks for covering Cuomo, saying that the networks should do a better job at covering other Governors like “Governor DeathSantis” and others for their COVID-19 response.

Governor Ron DeSantis (R) himself has faced mounting criticism from Democratic leadership in the Sunshine State. Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried (D) called DeSantis’ response “criminal” while asking for the Department of Justice and the FBI to “step in” and investigate. However, the Governor may have been given a new moniker this week as Sunny Hostin, a host on the View, slammed the Governor, calling him “Governor DeathSantis.”

“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,” Hostin said.

“We’re not talking at all about Governor ‘DeathSantis’ in Florida. We’re not talking about Governor Abbott… in Texas. We’re not talking about the South Dakota Governor. We’re not talking about any of those Governors in states that, I think it’s alleged that in Florida that DeSantis has hidden numbers of the deaths there,” she added.

Criticizing the media for being “hyperfocused” on the allegations against Cuomo, Hostin shared that “as members of the media, we need to examine that.”

“I’m just surprised that it continues,” Hostin concluded.
