The Cuomo brothers seem to have confidence in spades, but not much going for integrity.
Now Chris Cuomo is finally speaking out in his first media appearance since he was fired from CNN.
And his pants are already smoking.
Former New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo proved to be the ultimate corrupt politician.
From chucking COVID-19 positive patients into vulnerable nursing home populations to sexually harassing women who worked for him, the longtime Governor’s crimes were truly shocking and he ended up resigning in shame after 13 long years in office.
Then, in a stunning twist, his brother’s career at CNN also went down in flames — and CNN star Chris Cuomo took a good portion of the executive team at America’s most Crooked News Network down with him in a fiery scandal.
Chris Cuomo was caught red-handed using his expertise and influence as a prominent member of the media to help brainstorm ways to get his brother out of deep trouble as allegations about his sexual misconduct began to pile up.
The strategy sessions with his brother’s inner circle soon caught the attention of an Attorney General investigation — and the dirt they managed to dig up was so bad CNN first suspended their star player before ultimately firing him.
Around the same time, a scandal involving CNN CEO Jeff Zucker and his improper relationship with CNN executive Allison Gollust also blew up.
Gollust was one of Zucker’s first hires when he joined CNN.
Curiously, she just happened to spend a brief stint working as Andrew Cumo’s communications director before joining CNN, where she rose to the position of executive vice president and chief marketing officer.
Chances are there was a lot more going on beneath the surface than a consensual relationship between two adults who knew each other for over 20 years that caused the three longtime influential players to suddenly leave under a cloud of scandal.
But nobody at the network has spilled the beans – yet.
In fact, Chris Cuomo is apparently trying to stage a dramatic comeback — and if he were Pinocchio his nose would be 10 foot long by now.
During an appearance on Dan Abrams Live on NewsNation, the disgraced CNN star boldly claimed he’s innocent.
“Let’s start with the issue of, ‘I’ve never made calls to the press about my brother’s situation,’” Dan Abrams said. “You did, right?”
“No,” Cuomo answered. “I never contacted any media who were covering my brother to try to affect their coverage. I talk to people in the media all the time — they are most of the people in my life.”
“But you said, ‘I never made calls to the press about my brother’s situation. You did make calls to the press about your brother’s situation.”
“The distinction has a meaningful difference,” Cuomo responded. “The concern would be, not that I called you and said, ‘What do you think’s going on here?’ It’s me calling you and saying, ‘Hey, tonight in your segment, I hope you remember that.’”
“That is different,” Abrams agreed.
“But that’s what I meant and that’s what matters,” said Cuomo.
If he had a shred of ethical judgment, Chris Cuomo wouldn’t have been calling anyone in the news business and mentioning anything about his crooked brother in the first place.
Having an influential media business big shot clearly in his brother’s court during a massive scandal is obviously an unacceptable conflict of interest and his contact with anyone else — especially anyone in a lower position in the industry — would have a clear “chilling” effect on good reporting.
The fact that both Cuomo brothers lost their positions in a world they practically ran speaks volumes about how far they went beyond what was ethically — and legally — acceptable by any stretch of the imagination.

Chris Cuomo is attempting to stay relevant with the most desperate and pathetic move ever
Chris Cuomo left CNN under embarrassing circumstances.
He also burned bridges on his way out.
Now Cuomo is attempting to stay relevant with the most desperate and pathetic move.
Chris Cuomo was canned from CNN for unethical coverage of his brother, New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo, and his many scandals.
Now, Chris Cuomo is trying to remain within the corporate-controlled media landscape by launching his very own podcast.
And just like CNN+, this spinoff project is likely going to be a major flop.
“Former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is planning his comeback — and it’s a podcast,” The Hollywood Reporter announced. “Cuomo on Thursday launched The Chris Cuomo Project, an interview podcast with plans to release two episodes per week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The podcast will see Cuomo give ‘his signature take on today’s pressing current events — and explores how these stories are being covered by all sides of the media,’ according to a description on the podcast’s official YouTube page.”
“It will also feature ‘in-depth interviews with newsmakers, tastemakers and other influential figures,’ per the description,” The Hollywood Reporter continued. “The debut episode featured interviews with actor Sean Penn and Andriy Yermak, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s chief of staff, and included pieces from a recent trip Cuomo took to Ukraine.”
The news podcast space is crowded, so it’s hard to imagine what insight Cuomo could possibly add, especially since he’s said he won’t be airing any dirty laundry about his former employer.
“As for CNN, I will never be a hater,” Cuomo promised. “CNN has great people, CNN has a great purpose, and I wish them all the best, and I miss so many of the people there… But it is time for me to move on, and I believe I can be more than I was before.”
However, Chris Cuomo angered people at the network when he allegedly leaked the inappropriate relationship between former CNN boss Jeff Zucker and former CNN executive Allison Gollust, after Zucker punished Cuomo for lying about the actions he took to help his brother navigate his sexual harassment scandal.
Cuomo also apologized to his former staff and said, “The people who made my show number one at CNN from the jump, and kept it there… They never get the credit they deserve, it is always about the hair and the teeth, the people on TV. I didn’t get to say goodbye, and I am sorry about that. I am sorry that circumstances made it impossible to tell you face to face how each and all of you mean to me.”
The last time Chris Cuomo said anything interesting was when he confessed that he was sick and tired of working for a propaganda network.
“I don’t want to spend my time doing things that I don’t think are valuable enough to me personally,” Cuomo revealed in a 2020 radio interview. “I don’t value indulging irrationality, hyper-partisanship… I don’t like what I do professionally… I don’t think it’s worth my time.”
Cuomo quickly walked back his confession, but he does suddenly have plenty of time on his hands.
Now that he’s unchained, he will have a chance to prove if there’s any substance to him at all.
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.
