CNN Suspends Chris Cuomo Indefinitely

Published

on

CNN’s anchor Chris Cuomo has been suspended “indefinitely, pending further evaluation,” after new evidence surfaced showing his efforts to help his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, out of an ongoing sexual harassment scandal.

This comes a day after the release of thousands of documents from the office of New York Attorney General Letitia James showing that Chris Cuomo used his contacts to dig into the governor’s accusers.

CNN announced that the suspension was the equivalent of a cable news shockwave. “When Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly,” the spokesperson continued. “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,” the spokesperson added. “As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.”

They also show he consulted with various sources to help the elder Cuomo manage the sexual misconduct scandal that led to his resignation in August

Cuomo was the host of “Cuomo Prime Time”, program is frequently CNN’s most-watched hour of the day before his suspension. A second hour of “Anderson Cooper 360” will air in Cuomo’s place on Tuesday night.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has launched a military operation in Ukraine, with explosions heard across the country. Weeks of intense diplomacy and the imposition of Western sanctions on Russia failed to deter Putin, who had massed between over  150,000 troops along the borders of Ukraine.

Putin said he had authorised military action to defend itself against what he said were threats emanating from Ukraine.

Ukrainian military has said that they’ve shot down six Russian jets and helicopters in the eastern region, as Russian troops moved into the neighbouring country’s territories. Aircraft and an aggressor helicopter were shot down near the area of the Joint Forces.

The command also said that Ukraine’s military units are keeping their positions as “the enemy suffers losses.”

Ukranian Defense Minister has asked anyone who is ready and able to hold a weapon can join the Territorial Defense Force.
