Chris Cuomo Lands New Primetime Gig, Says He’s Committed To Being More Fair
Chris Cuomo is back and he’s just landed a new job with NewsNation.
The kicker is that the disgraced television host says he’s committed to being fairer than he was in the past. And that he is going to try hard to distance himself from the routinely criticized hardcore leftist role he played at CNN.
“Well, you are a part of my decision. I respect that you asked the questions. I think that’s how you show respect to our relationship is that you didn’t fake the funk. You asked what needs to be asked, I respect you for that,” Cuomo said to anchor Dan Abrams. “I respect how you do the job. I’ve been jealous of you while I’ve been away, watching.”
“And I want to help. I want to find a way to help people. I’m going to come to NewsNation. And I want to build something special here, work with Dan, work with the team here. They’ve got great people who are really hungry to make a difference in ways that I think matter,” he continued.
“I had decided that I can’t go back to what people see as the big game. I don’t think I can make a difference there. I think we need insurgent media. I think we need outlets that aren’t fringe and just trying to fill their pockets,” he added.
NewsNation is a small cable news network that aims to provide its audience with “down-the-middle, unbiased news reporting and analysis” according to The Washington Post.
Per Cuomo, he is committed to delivering on this mission.
“I’m going to do the job. I’m going to go where the news is, and I’m going to try very hard to be fair,” he claimed. “And I want to do it here. I want to make a difference. And I’m really hoping that it makes a difference for you [the viewer]. And I thank NewsNation very much for the opportunity.”
The former host will again serve as a primetime host this fall with a new hour-long show.

From Cuomo’s comments, it’s apparent that he is well aware of his tarnished reputation as an unbiased news anchor considering he was fired while under investigation at CNN over his alleged role in trying to help his brother navigate a sexual misconduct scandal.
Once this cohesion became known to the average viewer, Cuomo was forced to resign. Since then the former host has filed a $125 million lawsuit against CNN.
He demands $15 million in lost salary and $110 million in further damages.
Regardless of how that lawsuit plays out, there was one telling statement by Cuomo in his talks with anchor Dan Abrams about his questionable change of heart.
“Don’t listen to anybody else, only listen to me,” he said following warnings to American viewers who overtrust what people in the media tell them.
A stark hypocritical statement that goes against the whole argument entirely.
