REPORT: Chris Cuomo Consulted with Governor Cuomo Regarding Scandals

As if the world of Governor Cuomo was not occupied with enough scandals, one more has broken. 

However, this one involves his brother Chris, who happens to host his own show on CNN.  

Reports are now blowing up all over the place that Chris was consulting with Governor Cuomo on how to handle his sexual harassment scandal.  

You Cannot Do That! 

When you are a member of the media and your brother is in politics, the rules are different whether you like it or not.  

As a CNN host, Chris Cuomo is supposed to be reporting the news without bias, not educating his brother on containing the news cycle.  

That, however, is apparently exactly what he did.  

Earlier today, The Washington Post released a bombshell report that Chris Cuomo regularly joined conference calls to advise his brother on what moves he should and should not make regarding the sexual harassment charges he was facing.  

CNN did not even deny it.  

In fact, the network only excused the behavior because Chris was not personally reporting on the story.  

The network stated, “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. 

“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.” 

This is a massive ethics problem that even CNN employees are having a problem with right now.  

The real problem is that Chris Cuomo has influence at CNN as well as access to information his own brother may not have had regarding the scandal, not to mention undue influence to get his fellow hosts at CNN to soften to the story to help his brother.  

One CNN 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. 

“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.” 

The Washington Post concluded that Cuomo’s actions “cuts against the widely accepted norm in journalism that those reporting the news should not be involved in politics.” 

I would call that the understatement of the year so far.

Is he going to criticize Schumer now?

The DEA warns that Mexican cartels are “killing Americans with fentanyl at catastrophic and record rates like we’ve never seen before.”

Every community has been effected, and people have been killed as young as four months old and as old as 81 years old.
