ABC’s Chris Cuomo took to Twitter this morning to jab the Madoff family interviews on other networks.
Bernie Madoff’s wife Ruth and son Andrew spoke to Morley Safer last night on “60 Minutes,” and this morning to Matt Lauer on “Today.” Earlier this month, Cuomo interviewed Stephanie Mack the widow of the other Madoff son, Mark. Her account of the days, weeks and months following the revelation of the multi-billion dollar ponzi scheme differs from that of her mother-in-law and brother-in-law.
Late last week Cuomo posed a question to his followers, also about Lauer:
Cuomo got some of the typical responses:
@twittyboyd: We know who he is, but don’t care where he’s hiding. Much rather see u in morning.
@WhiteRoze: I don’t. But I do miss YOU on my tv everyday! Keep tweeting!” Always.
@Cyn90: He’s missing? I watch my peeps on @Gma, so I wouldn’t know, BUT I am NOW concerned! “. Maybe lauer knows his show abt to be #2!
ABC News tells us Cuomo was being asked to guess where Lauer would be for “Where in the World?” and so he used Twitter to find out who was following the long-running “Today” show series. “Nothing more, Matt is a friend,” an ABC spokesperson adds.
