Before a Question He Didn’t Like, Cuomo was Chatty

For more than three years, Andrew Cuomo has refused to appear on NY1, ever since one of their reporters asked about child care payments Cuomo’s ex-wife was complaining about.

The reporter, Dominic Carter, said he’s surprised Cuomo responded by shutting out the network, since they were laughing and chatting it up after the interview.

Carter:

“Afterwards on the set, Andrew wasn’t happy about my question. But I do give him credit for this. He was never the type of elected official to act like he was pleased in front of my face, and then have his press person greatly complain once he walked out the room. A classic “good cop-bad cop scenario. Cuomo focused on it for a second, and then he was fine. Smiling and having an off the record conversation with me where we were joking with each other like we always did no matter how difficult the interview was.”
