The rapid pace of change in the world has remade both the political-media industrial complex.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo doesn’t really like what he sees.

Cuomo on Monday night published a Washington Post op/ed in the form of a Socratic conversation: “35 questions Americans should ask themselves this election season.”

The bulk of the questions are really rhetorical laments — “11. When did we lose our confidence?” and “22. When did we decide compromise was a bad word?”

Taken together, it’s a longtime officeholder’s plea to take stock of how the political conversation is conducted in the country. And it’s a plea for elevating experience over flash.

This is both tied in with Cuomo’s support for ex-Vice President Joe Biden — arguably the only forthcoming candidate in the Democratic field the governor considers to be something of a peer — and his criticism of the media.

“He has the experience, he has the personality, he has the values,” Cuomo said in an interview on WAMC. “I think he can bring a sense of confidence. I think they can rely on him and they believe he can rely on him.”

He added, “We’re going to get in an airplane and go for a flight. It would be nice if the pilot actually flew a plane before.”

Cuomo in a radio interview decried the “sad” state of The New York Times, which last week reported New York City Transit President Andy Byford was upset and had considered quitting. Byford is not on the verge of leaving his job, but the two men had not spoken for weeks. Cuomo didn’t think this was news.

“What is that? It’s not even a tabloid story,” Cuomo said in an interview on WAMC.

“I think they have sell newspapers. I think that is the way of the world. I think that is symptomatic of our political system now. You have less public trust in newspapers, in politicians, and I think we have seen the degradation of the political system that is frightening.”

The reward for politicians running for office these days is to say something outrageous and get the attention they crave in the media. And the press obliges — something Cuomo said led to President Trump’s election.

“They need the drama, and they need the clicks, and they need the headline and that fuels the polarization of people and the emotion over intellect,” he said.

Hours earlier, President Trump once again on Twitter blasted The Times as well. But the criticisms from the two Queens natives is seemingly coming from different places. Trump wants fealty. Cuomo probably does, too, but also some acknowledgement of the past as more than just prologue.

The press corps that covers Cuomo has become younger and less experienced over the years as institutional knowledge has been whittled away due to the changing economics of the news business. Only a handful of reporters at the Capitol covered the last three term governor, Republican George Pataki, and very few covered his father, the late Mario Cuomo.

Cuomo is now the nation’s longest serving governor, having first been elected in 2010, a starkly different political environment. He’s been in public life since the 1980s, passing through eras dominated by Reagnomics, Clintonite triangulation and the Democratic wilderness years of the second Bush administration.

In other words, it’s a career that spans multiple political eras. And he’s trying tell the country he’s picked up some info along the way.
