Will CNN fire the “Cuomo Prime Time” host?
CNN host Chris Cuomo drafted statements for his embattled brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, according to emails in the state attorney general’s report.
Nationally-syndicated radio host Todd Starnes told his listeners Tuesday: “Both Cuomo brothers should be on the unemployment line by the end of the day.”
CNN is under fire for allowing Cuomo to advise his older brother not to step down amid sexual misconduct allegations before a probe concluded the governor did sexually harass multiple women.
The most popular host at CNN issued an apology to his colleagues in May for offering political advice to his brother and CNN said Cuomo engaged in “inappropriate” strategy meetings with the governor’s team.
Gov. Cuomo, again on Tuesday, denied all allegations and said he has never touched anyone “inappropriately.”
Reacting to the report, CNN legal analyst, Paul Callan, called the report “shocking.”
In the Feb. 20 email, Chris writes:
“Questions have been raised about some of my past interactions with people in the office.
I spend most of my life at work and colleagues are often also personal friends. I never intended to offend anyone or cause any harm.
sometimes I am playful and make jokes. You have seen me do it at briefings hundreds of times. My only desire is to add some levity and banter to what is a very serious business.
I now understand that my interactions may have been insensitive or too personal and that some of my comments, given my position, made others feel in ways I never intended. I’m sorry and feel deeply embarrassed about that.
Separately, my office has heard anecdotally that some people have reached out Ms. Bennett to express displeasure about her coming forward. My message to anyone doing that is you have misjudged what matters to me and my administration and you should stop now – period.”
