Chris Cuomo

Chris Cuomo was forced to apologize for one phone call that could end his career



Chris Cuomo is once again facing scrutiny.

CNN is in total damage control mode.

Chris Cuomo was forced to apologize for one phone call that could end his career.

The Washington Post broke the story that Chris Cuomo participated in phone calls with his brother – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo – and his advisors on how to respond to the escalating number of women accusing Governor Cuomo or sexual assault and harassment.

Cuomo’s conduct was a severe break of journalistic ethics.

CNN routinely criticizes Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson for speaking with Donald Trump, and the network scrambled to respond to one of their marquee hosts helping Governor Cuomo escape accountability for a growing scandal involving the mistreatment of women.

Cuomo responded to the story on his nightly show.

“Remember I told you back in the beginning of March I can’t cover my brother’s troubles, it wouldn’t be fair,” Cuomo told his viewers.

“You got it then and I appreciate you understanding. Now, today there are stories out there about me offering my brother advice. Of course I do. This is no revelation. I have said it publicly and I certainly have never hidden it.”

Cuomo stated he was obligated to help his brother as his legal and political troubles mounted.

“Like you, I bet, my family means everything to me. And I am fiercely loyal to them. I am family first, job second,” Cuomo added.

Cuomo admitted that he was “looped into calls with other friends of his and advisers, that did include some of his staff.”

It was notable for what Cuomo did and did not apologize for.

Cuomo apologized to his colleagues at CNN for embarrassing the network.

“This is a unique and difficult situation, and that’s okay,” Cuomo stated. “I know where the line is. I can respect it and still be there for my family, which I must. I have to do that. I love my brother, I love my family, I love my job. And I love and respect my colleagues here at CNN. And again, to them I am truly sorry…I want this to be said in public to you who give me the opportunity and to my colleagues who make me better at what I do.”

But Chris Cuomo did not apologize to the women who claimed to have suffered abuse at the hands of his brother.

Nor did Cuomo apologize to the family members of the seniors that died from coronavirus in nursing homes after Governor Cuomo signed an order mandating assisted living facilities take in COVID-19 patients.

Chris Cuomo received a big-time reality check that will make leftists’ heads explode



CNN’s dwindling audience expects the network’s programming to spoon feed them a certain narrative.

But on one primetime show, a guest recently deviated from the script.

And Chris Cuomo received a big-time reality check that will make leftists’ heads explode.

Left-wing activists Chris Cuomo interviewed liberal comic Bill Maher.

Maher is a long-time critic of “woke” politics and cancel culture, explaining that the Left’s descent into identity politics and political correctness alienates voters.

Cuomo took on Maher’s criticism of the left’s “anti-racism” agenda by pushing the usual line that parents have every right to be upset, but conservatives fooled them with lies about Critical Race Theory being taught in schools.

Maher quickly shutdown that falsehood, explaining that Maher’s read enough news accounts and performed enough research to know that left-wing teachers are teaching Critical Race Theory in schools.

“And it’s not a phantom either,” Maher added. “I’m not in schools, I have no interaction with children whatsoever. But I do understand this issue because I read accounts from parents, from educators.”

Maher continued on stating that he wasn’t against teaching children about racism in school, but that Critical Race Theory indoctrinated children with a false impression that racism is what defines America and every aspect of life.

“That’s what people get upset about, or involving children who are probably not old enough or sophisticated enough to understand this very complicated issue with a very complicated history,” Maher stated.

Maher cited examples of how Critical Race Theory lessons separate children by race and teach kids to resent one another based on their skin color stating “kids are taught and sometimes separated into groups, oppressor and oppressed.”

“Does a kid even know what those words mean? Would they gravitate toward that if you hadn’t told them?” Maher asked.

Cuomo pushed back, asking Maher if not teaching Critical Race Theory hid children from the truth about racism in America.

“That’s nuts. That’s just silly. It’s just virtue signaling,” Maher shot back.

Parents in Virginia rebelled against Critical Race Theory in schools, and it led to a Republican sweep in a state the GOP had not won elections in since 2009.

Maher warned CNN’s audience that if Democrats latched themselves to defending Critical Race Theory, the Party could expect more defeats in 2022.

And that is not a message many CNN viewers have heard before as the network’s hosts and reporters stick to the script and continually repeat the falsehood that Critical Race Theory is not taught in schools.

Chris Cuomo is about to have a giant problem after what one woman went to the press about



Chris Cuomo is wrapped up in a sexual harassment scandal.

CNN is staying silent and hoping it all blows over.

But now Chris Cuomo is about to have a giant problem after what one woman went to the press about.

Page Six of the New York Post reported that Melanie Buck – the former producer of his nightly show on CNN – requested a transfer because “she felt threatened” by Cuomo after a significant difference of opinion on the direction of his show.

The New York Post reports:

The female producer of Chris Cuomo’s show “Cuomo Prime Time” begged to leave his show after the pair clashed over “significant differences” — with multiple TV sources saying she found the hot-headed host’s behavior threatening.

Melanie Buck was executive producer of “Cuomo Prime Time” from April 2018 but was suddenly replaced by Izzy Povich in March 2020 — shortly before Cuomo melodramatically returned to the world from his basement in the Hamptons following weeks of COVID-19 quarantine.

A CNN insider confirmed Buck went to CNN boss Jeff Zucker and asked to be taken off Cuomo’s show and moved to another department, which he agreed to. The insider denied rumors that Buck was given a significant pay-off to stay silent over her spat with the agitable anchor.

More than one source told us of Buck, “She felt threatened.”

Buck apparently wanted Cuomo to do more long-form interviews, but Cuomo demanded his show focus on opinion programming.

Since Cuomo is a primetime star, his vision won out.

But Buck is now the second woman to come forward alleging that Cuomo made them feel uncomfortable.

Cuomo’s former boss at ABC Shelley Ross kicked off this entire scandal writing a New York Times op-ed describing how Cuomo squeezed her buttocks at a going away party for a colleague.

As the scandals surrounding Cuomo and his conduct toward women grow, CNN is closing ranks around Cuomo and hoping this story only stays confined to the conservative media so they can ignore it.

CNN closed the book on Chris Cuomo’s scandal with this insane decision



Chris Cuomo found himself in the middle of his brother New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s sexual harassment scandal.

Media critics pounded CNN for tolerating this violation of journalism ethics.

And CNN closed the book on Chris Cuomo’s scandal with this insane decision.

After news stories back in May revealed that Chris Cuomo advised his brother on how to navigate the sexual harassment allegations against him, Cuomo said CNN’s conflict of interest policies prevented him from addressing his brother’s scandals on the air.

But those same conflict of interest guidelines did not stop Cuomo from having his brother on for near nightly interviews last spring when the media wanted to prop up Andrew Cuomo as the hero of the coronavirus so they could use him to attack Donald Trump.

After Andrew Cuomo resigned and Chris Cuomo returned from his vacation, the CNN host addressed the matter on his show.

Cuomo claimed he never tried to discredit the women accusing his brother, that CNN prevented him from speaking about the matter and that he stopped participating in strategy calls with his brother’s advisors once the story broke.

CNN admitted – through its media team propagandists – that the matter was closed.

Left-wing activist Oliver Darcy wrote in the Reliable Sources newsletter that “Chris Cuomo, back from vacation, ended his program Monday night by delivering an honest and heartfelt comment about his ‘brother’s situation.’ Cuomo said the imminent resignation of NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been ‘unlike anything’ he could have ‘ever imagined.’ He went on to say that ‘it was a unique situation, being a brother to a politician in a scandal and being part of the media.”

“Cuomo told viewers that he ‘tried to do the right thing’ throughout it all and that he wanted people to ‘know that.’ He concluded by saying that this would be his ‘final word’ on the subject,” Darcy added.

The Washington Post’s far-left media critic Margaret Sullivan said Chris Cuomo deserved a lengthy unpaid suspension for his violation of journalistic ethics.

But since CNN is not a news organization, they won’t abide by any such ethics or punish Cuomo as Darcy’s “matter of fact” write up makes clear.
