CNN Suspends Chris Cuomo Indefinitely

AllSides Summary

CNN suspended primetime anchor Chris Cuomo indefinitely Tuesday.

The suspension comes after new information emerged regarding Cuomo's involvement in helping his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, craft a defense against sexual misconduct allegations. According to text messages and other evidence released by the New York Attorney General on Monday, Chris Cuomo urged his brother not to resign, used his press connections to get information on news coverage about accusations before publication, and helped his brother monitor and keep track of allegations. Cuomo has not yet directly addressed his suspension. Andrew Cuomo resigned as New York's governor in August after the state's attorney general concluded that he had sexually harassed 11 women.

Media across the spectrum covered the news. Coverage from many right-rated outlets and some center-rated outlets framed CNN as biased and Cuomo as unethical, and questioned why he hadn't been fired yet.
