CNN ‘indefinitely suspends’ high-profile anchor Chris Cuomo
20 hours ago

CNN has “suspended indefinitely” prime time anchor Chris Cuomo after revelations he was deeply involved in helping his brother during a high-profile sexual harassment investigation.

Earlier this week New York Attorney General Letitia James released numerous documents, including text messages, Mr Cuomo agreed to contact news “sources” for advance information on reports his brother Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed numerous women during his tenure as Governor of New York.

In a statement released on Tuesday local time, CNN said the material “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.”

It wil be interesting to see if his suspension lasts as long as one of his colleague's recent "leave of Absence" (Jeffrey Toobin)...

New York (CNN)CNN said Saturday that anchor Chris Cuomo has been "terminated" by the network, "effective immediately."

The announcement came after an outside law firm was retained to review information about exactly how Cuomo aided his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, when the then-governor was accused of sexual harassment.

CNN said in a statement: "Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother's defense. We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review, and have terminated him, effective immediately."

"While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light," CNN's statement added. "Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate."

Well, he's without a job, now. A guy in his position really should have known better.
