CNN has suspended one of their most prominent anchors, Chris Cuomo, the brother of the disgraced former New York governor Andrew Cuomo. CNN actions swiftly came after the New York Attorney General’s Office published documents on Monday which revealed that the anchor had been using his position in media to help his brother navigate sexual harassment allegations.

The documents were part of Attorney General Letitia James’ investigation into the sexual harassment allegations against the former governor. Chris Cuomo publicly apologized on-air back in May when the Washington Post first revealed he had participated in strategy calls with his brother about the allegations.

Documents released Monday revealed Chris told investigators he contacted journalist Ronan Farrow to discuss a piece about his brother regarding allegations against him. He also texted with his brother’s former aide, Melissa DeRosa.

“I have a lead on the wedding girl” Chris texted DeRosa after one woman accused the governor of attempting to kiss her at a wedding, according to a New York Times report in March. As allegations against the governor continued to pile on, many criticized CNN and Chris for his absolute silence on the matter, except for a rare, quick acknowledgment.

After Andrew Cuomo resigned as governor, Chris said “I never attacked nor encouraged anyone to attack any woman who came forward. I never made calls to the press about my brother’s situation.”

We now know that was a lie. CNN released the following statement:

The New York Attorney General’s office released transcripts and exhibits Monday that shed new light on Chris Cuomo’s involvement in his brother’s defense. The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions. When Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly. But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second. However, these documents point to a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew. As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.

Rumor has it that MSNBC host Joy Reid will be losing her 7pm show. Jon Nicosia, president of News Cycle Media took to Twitter to write a series of tweets about the shakeup:

“Source @Comcast: ‘Joy Reid will lose her 7p show in the next round of reshuffling at MSNBC,’ – ‘she does not have a show come mid Spring’ – The ‘decision has been made, the only thing left is messaging on the move, which will be ratings’ -1/”

“As was the case with Chris Cuomo at CNN, Reid has allies at Comcast, however, she is now viewed as ‘unmanageable’ by many. Also, similar to Cuomo, it appears those allies have found out she has been ‘less than truthful about past incidents’ 2/(more to come).”

“Also, like Cuomo at CNN. Watch for MSNBC/Comcast to defend her right until the announcement” Nicosia added to the Twitter thread.

Reid has been known to have hate-filled rants and place news stories under the umbrella of racism. Among her most recent and most vile of controversial quotes is when she said Republicans have a deep “hatred” for President Biden because he served as vice president to “the Black president.”
