    Sorry, can't post a link to the video or the story -- too much profanity, including F-bombs.

    What's with this guy?
    I hear they blocked on you tube because of bullying. Was Fredo getting bullied?

    Hardly. If anything he was the one doing it like when he told the guy who called him Fredo:

    I’ll smiley bleep.gifing ruin your smiley bleep.gif. I’ll smiley bleep.gifing throw you down these stairs like a smiley bleep.gifing punk.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Even though he referred to his own self as Fredo on the past.

    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who was captured on a viral video getting into a profanity-laced exchange with a person who called him “Fredo,” once referred to himself as the hapless “The Godfather” character in a radio interview.

    Cuomo was interviewed by Curtis Sliwa on his AM 970 radio show in January 2010 about whether his brother Andrew might seek the Democratic nomination for governor.

    Sliwa said he dubbed the Cuomo family “la Cuomo Nostra.”

    “There is a group of people — politicos — who always hint they might run, but not necessarily plunge all the way, and they are members of la Cuomo.”

    “Who am I, then, Fredo?” Cuomo asked in response.

    Further it seems that most accounts are focusing on the fact that the language he used was laced with vulgar language where I think a bigger issue is that he apparently threatened to push the guy down a flight of stairs.
    Er, come on - that's like asking 'am I chopped liver'. I don't think that's a fair comparison.

    Of course, he's now got himself a new nickname - sometimes it pays to just let things slide...
