CNN Conducting “Review” After Progressive Hack Chris Cuomo Found Using Media Connects to Help Andrew Cuomo
Corporate news organization CNN is conducting of “review” of evening host Chris Cuomo, after the beleaguered host was implicated in using his media connections to assist now-disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. The older Cuomo was driven from office in a sexual harassment scandal, following a controversy over the deaths of tens of thousands of New York seniors through forced placement in coronavirus-ridden nursing homes.
New York Attorney General Leticia James revealed text messages in which Chris Cuomo used his journalistic connections to feed information on Andrew Cuomo’s sexual harassment accusers to Cuomo staffers. Chris Cuomo texted his brother’s top aide, Anna DeRosa, promising information on a woman who had claimed Andrew Cuomo attempted to forcibly kiss her at a wedding. “I have a lead on the wedding girl,” said the younger Cuomo to DeRosa.
In another text message, Chris Cuomo asked DeRosa to “let me help with the prep,” referencing planned Andrew Cuomo speeches and statements seeking to deflect and rebuke the sexual harassment accusations. Chris Cuomo drafted a full statement slamming “cancel culture” for Andrew, explaining why he “could not” resign.
CNN potato Brian Stelter announced that the network, widely known for a lack of journalistic ethics and spreading disinformation, would be reviewing Cuomo over the controversy.

Some have argued that Andrew Cuomo’s exodus from office was spurred by a #MeToo flurry of accusations which aren’t properly substantiated and ignored due process. However, the former Democrat governor was proud to stand for “believing women” and accepting premises of sexual impropriety without evidence- a standard he was more than willing to apply to people who lack his own political and media connections.
Chris Cuomo had previously denied reports that he worked PR for his brother during his downfall, a claim that now appears to be a lie. His interference in a story on behalf of Andrew Cuomo’s interests represents a profound betrayal of journalistic integrity, a frequent trait of CNN’s broadcasting and digital media.
