Chris Cuomo Fails To Even Mention Brother's Sexual Harassment Scandal In Hourlong Show

·1-min read

The elephant in the room on Chris Cuomo’s CNN show Tuesday night was the sexual harassment scandal engulfing his older brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).

Chris Cuomo’s hourlong program contained no mention of the explosive report released by New York state Attorney General Letitia James earlier in the day that concluded his brother had sexually harassed multiple women, per multiple media outlets.

The governor denies the allegations.

The anchor also didn’t talk about helping his brother craft his initial response to the allegations, for which the journalist later apologized. The only reference featured on the news ticker that scrolled at the bottom of the screen.

Instead, Chris Cuomo — who drew criticism for his jokey on-air interviews with his brother in the early months of the pandemic (despite an earlier ban on covering his brother on air) and then said he “obviously” couldn’t cover the sexual misconduct claims when they first surfaced because of the conflict of interest — focused largely on the latest developments in the public health crisis.

Chris Cuomo’s show was bookended by anchors John Berman and Don Lemon, who both addressed the New York scandal. President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) were among the Democratic politicians calling for the governor to resign.

Lemon called the attorney general’s report “damning.”
