NewsBusters Podcast: The Cuomo News Network Shreds the Ethics Manual

August 4th, 2021 11:42 PM

The New York Attorney General's report on sexual harassment by Gov. Andrew Cuomo included new details into how extensively CNN prime-time host Chris Cuomo advised his brother. CNN seems to have no problem with this massive conflict of interest. This isn't even new. Former Cuomo adviser Susan Del Percio declared on Morning Joe that Chris was advising his brother seven years ago

CNN's decisions have underlined that the really don't care what people think about Chris's moonlighting in political strategy. To let him do his Cuomo Prime Time show on the day this devastating harassment report came out -- and say nothing about it -- was a shameless decision. 

Nick Fondacaro, who has become Cuomo's leading media critic, joined the show to discuss all the latest developments. Does Andrew make Italians look bad by suggesting they just hug and kiss and squeeze everyone who moves? Does Chris need to resign from CNN? We talk about these questions and more.
