CNN cannot reasonably justify keeping host Chris Cuomo on the air.
Yet, the left-wing cable network is leaving him right where he is, even after today.
“CNN anchor Chris Cuomo advised his brother, New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, and senior members of the governor’s staff on how to respond to sexual harassment allegations made earlier this year by women who had worked with the governor,” the Washington Post reports, citing “four people familiar with the discussions.”
The report adds, “Cuomo, one of the network’s top stars, joined a series of conference calls that included the Democratic governor’s top aide, his communications team, lawyers and a number of outside advisers.”
The CNN anchor on Thursday issued a faux apology to his viewers and colleagues.
“Like you,” Cuomo said, “my family means everything to me. And I am fiercely loyal to them. I am family first, job second.”
He continued, calling his actions “a mistake, because I put my colleagues here, who I believe are the best in the business, in a bad spot.”
“This is a unique and difficult situation, and that’s OK,” Cuomo concluded. “I know where the line is. I can respect it and still be there for my family, which I must. I have to do that. I love my brother, I love my family, I love my job. And I love and respect my colleagues here at CNN. And again, to them, I am truly sorry.”
At any reputable newsroom, Cuomo would be fired or, at the very least, suspended by now for this obvious breach of ethics. But CNN is not exactly reputable these days. It’s going to do exactly nothing about its anchor’s malfeasance.
Nonsense – they’ve taken serious action in regards to Chris Cuomo’s scandal: Hypocritical CNN Fires Rick Santorum, But Still Refusing to Punish Chris Cuomo.
CNN has fired Rick Santorum, one of the few conservatives on the network, according to the HuffPost. The move came after lobbying from liberal organizations in the wake of Santorum saying that “there isn’t much Native American culture in American culture.” The political commentator apologized for his comments and said he misspoke, but that apparently wasn’t enough for the liberal news outlet.
Showcasing the hypocrisy of CNN, the network has REFUSED to punish star Chris Cuomo for the shocking revelation that he participated in strategy sessions advising his governor brother, Andrew Cuomo, on how to survive the multiple sexual abuse claims against him.
