CNN fires Chris Cuomo for helping brother handle sexual misconduct allegations

By Grayson Quay The Week

CNN announced Saturday that anchor Chris Cuomo has been fired after evidence emerged that he used his position and contacts to help his older brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), weather accusations of sexual misconduct, Reuters reports.

The former governor resigned in October after an investigation concluded that he had groped or otherwise harassed 11 women who worked for him.

CNN called the younger Cuomo’s behavior “a breach of journalistic ethics” and announced that they have hired a law firm to examine his behavior in greater depth.

In a statement released Saturday, Chris Cuomo wrote, “This is not how I want my time at CNN to end but I have already told you why and how I helped my brother. So let me now say as disappointing as this is, I could not be more proud of the team at Cuomo Prime Time and the work we did as CNN’s #1 show.”
