CNN is in big trouble.
The leftwing network has a major scandal on its hands.
And CNN faced a major decision about a top star after an ugly secret went public.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
Last May, CNN host Chris Cuomo admitted he participated in strategy calls to help his brother New York Governor Andrew Cuomo respond to multiple women making sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations against the governor.
As it turns out, Chris Cuomo’s involvement in this scandal was even worse than anyone knew.
The New York State Attorney General’s Office released thousands of pages of documents from its investigation into the allegations that eventually led to Governor Cuomo’s resignation.
When investigators interviewed Cuomo, the CNN host admitted that he worked his contacts in the media to acquire dirt on Governor Cuomo’s accusers.
“I would – when asked, I would reach out to sources, other journalists, to see if they had heard of anybody else coming out,” Cuomo stated.
In text messages to Governor Cuomo’stop aide Melissa DeRosa, Cuomo wrote that he may have information on Anna Ruch, the woman who accused Governor Cuomo of attempting an unwanted kiss at a wedding reception.
“Please let me help with the prep,” Cuomo added, “I have a lead on the wedding girl.”
In his meeting with investigators Cuomo related that he heard from sources about Ruch that “maybe she had been put up to it.”
This past March, Chris Cuomo also typed out a statement he wanted Governor Cuomo to release attacking the women accusing Governor Cuomo of taking part in “political warfare” and decrying the scandal as part of cancel culture.
“I will not resign, I cannot resign,” the texted statement reads. “I understand the political pressure, I understand the stakes of political warfare, and that’s what this is… And I understand the conformity that can be forced by cancel culture,” Chris Cuomo wrote.
CNN spokesman Matt Dornic claimed the pro-Democrat network would take stock of the new revelations.
“The thousands of pages of additional transcripts and exhibits that were released today by the NY Attorney General deserve a thorough review and consideration,” Dornic stated. “We will be having conversations and seeking additional clarity about their significance as they relate to CNN over the next several days.”
As soon as Cuomo’s admissions came out that he worked media sources to try and discredit his brother’s accusers, calls for CNN to take Cuomo off the air poured in.
Chris Cuomo purports to be a news anchor.
But in this scandal Chris Cuomo acted as a political operative working on behalf of his brother as opposed to the viewing public.
CNN shamefully allowed Chris Cuomo to provide Andrew Cuomo a platform during the early months of the coronavirus pandemic to perform comedy routines and spread the false narrative that Governor Cuomo deftly handled the outbreak.
Americans now know that is not true because evidence surfaced showing the Cuomo administration sought to hide the true number of deaths in nursing homes following Governor Cuomo’s disastrous order mandating those facilities take in coronavirus patients.
CNN sacrificed whatever little journalistic credibility it retained by allowing Chris Cuomo to air propaganda interviews with his brother.
And now these latest revelations show there was no separation between Chris Cuomo the anchor and Chris Cuomo the partisan.
