Chris Cuomo: Suspension from CNN ’embarrassing’
CNN’s Chris Cuomo said he is embarrassed after being suspended by the network on Tuesday following new revelations about his involvement in the campaign of his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), to defend himself from allegations of sexual harassment.
In the statement on Tuesday, CNN said it “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,” the network concluded. “As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.”
Chris Cuomo did not acknowledge the newly released documents during his show on Monday and did not discuss the details of the documents during the intro to his radio show on Wednesday.
