After reports surfaced that CNN host Chris Cuomo helped advise his brother New York Gov Andrew Cuomo amidst multiple allegations of sexual misconduct and unwanted touching one CNN insider was disgusted. Reports revealed that Chris Cuomo attended multiple inappropriate “strategy meetings” to advise his brother on how he should respond to the growing scandals.
Fox News reports:
The CNN insider took aim at the anchor for allegedly invoking “cancel culture” while urging his brother to stay firm in combatting the misconduct claims.
“To say it’s ‘cancel culture’ – it’s despicable,” the insider told Fox News.
“It’s the height of hypocrisy for Chris to have [his brother] on there for the good news but doesn’t have him on to discuss the bad news,” the insider said. “It’s laughable for him to be so judgmental of other people for their wrongdoings and he’s sitting there enabling and coming up with excuses for someone with sexual misconduct allegations.”
CNN says that Chris Cuomo will not be punished for attending the meetings.
“Chris has not been involved in CNN’s extensive coverage of the allegations against Governor Cuomo – on air or behind the scenes. In part because, as he has said on his show, he could never be objective. But also because he often serves as a sounding board for his brother,” CNN said in a statement to Fox News. “However, it was inappropriate to engage in conversations that included members of the Governor’s staff, which Chris acknowledges. He will not participate in such conversations going forward.”
More than five women have come forward with eerily similar accounts of Andrew Cuomo’s sexual misconduct.
