Andrew Mark Cuomo Forced to resign He left the office in August after New York Attorney General of New York, Letitia James, discovered that she had violated state and federal law by sexually harassing 11 women.
CNN, a television news network owned by AT & T, said it admitted that Chris Cuomo had violated the rules of the network when he advised his brother’s staff.
However, a document released by James’ office on Monday showed a much deeper level of involvement than previously known, the network said.
“Documents we didn’t know before they were published raise serious issues,” CNN said. “As a result, we stopped Chris indefinitely while waiting for further evaluation.”
The latest document is a new headache for CNN over its anchor relationship with his brother. After becoming a national political hero during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic Andrew Mark Cuomo I am suffering from many allegations that eventually led to his resignation.
His brother did not cover the news of his show, as more and more women came forward in accusations against Andrew Cuomo. However, he advised senior aides on how to deal with the crisis, sought to find a story that rival news outlets were working on, and questioned CNN’s journalism standards.
Anderson Cooper will take a 9 pm slot for Chris Cuomo’s golden time on Tuesday night.
In May, Chris Cuomo apologized to viewers for his advice to his brother. “I understand why it was a problem for CNN … it was a mistake,” he said. “I can be objective on any topic, but not on my family.”
