Corrupt Cuomo Brothers Inc.

Now we know why CNN was silent about Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s sexual harassment scandal.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo normally pontificates on the news, but now he’s finding himself as a news story. It has come to light that the Leftmedia host had privately advised his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, on how best to respond to sexual harassment allegations. As the Washington Post reported, “Cuomo, one of the network’s top stars, joined a series of conference calls that included the Democratic governor, his top aide, his communications team, lawyers and a number of outside advisers, according to the people familiar with the conversations, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the private sessions.”

You know it’s bad when even a fellow Leftmedia outlet like WaPo is bold enough to quote anonymous sources in order to call foul. Yet CNN stood by its anchor after Cuomo issued an apology of sorts in which he indicated that he’s only sorry for how his behavior put his colleagues at CNN “in a bad spot.” He further insisted, “I’ve never tried to influence this network’s coverage of my brother,” dubiously claiming, “In fact, I’ve been walled off from it.”

Let’s just say that Cuomo’s denial of history is unconvincing. Not only did Chris conduct ridiculous slap-stick “interviews” of brother Andrew while thousands of New Yorkers were dying of COVID, but CNN remained curiously quiet on sexual harassment allegations raised against the governor. Does anyone really believe that one of CNN’s top anchors had no input in the outlet’s decision to essentially ignore the scandal?

Well, now it’s known that Chris advised his brother to deny any wrongdoing and refuse to resign, similar to the actions he himself supposedly took when dealing with his own sexual harassment allegations. The Daily Wire notes, “Four sources familiar with the calls told the newspaper that Chris Cuomo advised his brother on how to handle the political fallout produced by the allegations. Chris reportedly told his brother to refuse to resign and strike a defiant pose, claiming he was standing up against ‘cancel culture.’” Was Chris also pressuring CNN to remain silent?

This serves as yet another blow to any shred of journalistic credibility that may have yet existed at the fast-fading Leftmedia outlet, which has seen its viewership numbers tank following Joe Biden’s inauguration.
