CNN news anchor Chris Cuomo has disappeared from his responsibility of reporting on all news that includes his brother in a fair way. The news anchor was never lost for words when it came to reporting on any news regarding former president Donald Trump when sexual allegations mounted against Trump. Now, CNN is not allowing Cuomo to cover the sexual allegations against his governor brother, Andrew Cuomo(right). Lets not forget Cuomo interviewed the governor several times on CNN. But, now the network will use the excuse that it is a conflict of interest for their star anchor to comment or report any news surrounding sexual allegation claims against his brother.
Cuomo may just now have an understanding to support his brother as sexual allegations continue to surge from an array of women. As sexual allegations mounted against Trump, Cuomo at the time had no problem reporting, commenting and disapproving of Trump for office as women came forward in droves to talk about a man in power allegedly sexually assaulting them or engaging in appropriate acts.
It’s been quite the contrary for Cuomo since his own brother is now dealing with his cases of sexual allegations. Cuomo reportedly went so far in allegedly advising his New York Governor brother around the mounting sexual allegations. Suspicious of Cuomo’s support for his brother as a news anchor, the Post Erick Wemple had this to say:
“CNN needs to commission a report of its own to determine just how its star anchor fit into this sexual harassment pushback effort.
With outrage surging that a news anchor as Cuomo was advising his governor brother around the sexual allegations against him, Cuomo responded to the outrage saying:
When my brother’s situation became turbulent, being looped into calls with other friends of his and advisers that did include some of his staff, I understand why that was a problem for CNN. It will not happen again,” Cuomo said in May.
It was a mistake, because I put my colleagues here, who I believe are the best in the business, in a bad spot. I never intended for that. I would never intend for that and I am sorry for that.
Calls for CNN to fire their reported $6 million dollar a year anchor grew. Some of Cuomo’s colleagues reportedly in secret have said that he should have been disciplined for his actions in his alleged role of push-backs of sexual allegations mouting against his brother. Cuomo’s ratings with his female viewers has taken a nose dive. Governor Andrew Cuomo who has resigned will step out of office in 12 days. 63 years old Andrew Cuomo has been governor of New York since 2011.
