CNN presenters, who pride themselves on being virtuous truth-tellers of the highest journalistic integrity, were visibly lukewarm towards their colleague Chris Cuomo, who was suspended by the network for his extensive involvement in helping his brother through the scandal.
The explosive documents released Monday by the New York attorney general’s office showing Cuomo’s intense efforts to protect now ousted Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo received minimal attention on CNN, which the Liberal Network plagued with scandals recognized only after the network announced its suspension.
But none of the network’s biggest stars, from Wolf Blitzer to reportedly enraged Jake Tapper behind the scenes, have offered no public condemnation of Cuomo’s actions.
Even Cuomo’s prime-time best friend Don Lemon couldn’t even stand the mention of the suspension.

Cuomo’s sudden disappearance from CNN airwaves has only been discussed twice since the network announced.
The first was that of his prime-time colleague Anderson Cooper, who awkwardly informed CNN viewers of Cuomo’s suspension as he sat across from Jeffrey Toobin, the network’s chief legal analyst who is returned following her Zoom masturbation scandal last year.
The second occurred Wednesday on CNN’s flagship morning show, “New Day”, which was little-watched. After recapping the controversy, Network lackey Brian Stelter suggested that “it’s possible” Cuomo will return as early as January.

A CNN spokesperson canceled Stelter’s comments, telling Fox News: “Anything is possible, but everything is speculative until the review is complete. It hasn’t even been 24 hours.”
Cuomo addressed his suspension on his SiriusXM radio show Wednesday,
“It hurts to say it, it’s embarrassing, but I understand it and I understand why some people feel the way they feel about what I did,” Cuomo said. “I’ve apologized in the past and I really mean it, it’s the last thing I wanted to do was compromise a colleague of mine and do something other than help.”
Transcripts of Cuomo’s interview with state investigators indicated that the CNN star would contact media sources to find out more about his brother’s accusers before they come out publicly. Text messages also indicated that he was spying on reporters about upcoming stories that would make his brother look bad, and relaying the information to the governor’s assistants.

Cuomo’s confession contradicted what he told CNN viewers in August when he said, “I never called the press about my brother’s situation.”
Liberal news outlets, women’s groups, journalists from all political backgrounds, and women who accused the former governor of sexual misconduct have all called on CNN to fire Cuomo.
