Disgraced CNN host Chris Cuomo is out of a job. According to Bazaar Daily UK, Cuomo was booted from his show last night effective immediately amid CNN learning the extent of his involvement in his brother’s sex-pest scandal. Cuomo had previously and rather infamously lied about his alleged involvement until text messages and e-mails revealed he had tried to corner Andrew ‘s accusers in favour of his brother.
“The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions,” the network said in its statement per multiple outlets including the UK version of our sister site.
“The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions,” the network said in a statement. “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,” CNN added. “As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.”
