If CNN’s Brian Stelter is to be believed, Chris Cuomo’s “indefinite” suspension could end up being just a very long Christmas break.
Appearing on CNN’s “New Day” on Wednesday morning, Stelter said the network’s anchor star is just “on the bench” and could return to air as early as January. Cuomo was suspended Tuesday night after documents from the New York attorney general’s investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, showed The CNN host had more to do with the PR counterattack than he said.

According to Stelter, net is reviewing a series of documents released by the Attorney General’s Office and will make a decision once that review is complete.
“It is a complicated situation. I think the bottom line is that Cuomo is on the bench at the moment,” Stelter said.
“We are entering a holiday season. I think there’s a chance he’ll be on the bench for a few weeks. It is likely that he will return in January.”

Stelter is (pardon the pun) a reliable source on this. He has shared a short line on two CNN stories about Cuomo since the attorney document was released, one about the dump itself and is different announced Cuomo’s network suspension. Not only is he involved in the story, this is essentially CNN reporting on itself; one imagines that there aren’t any sources of information about Stelter, even if that’s just what those sources think viewers want to hear.
Furthermore, if Cuomo doesn’t come back, it’s hard to see why the network was temporary by announcing a “closer review” of the documents, as everything they needed to terminate Cuomo was certainly available by afternoon. Monday.
In a murky August, Cuomo said he was “not an adviser” to the governor, but “a brother”.
“I was there to listen and give my advice, and my advice to my brother was simple and consistent: ‘Own what you’ve done, tell everyone you’ll do to get better, move on and in the end, accept that it doesn’t happen” It doesn’t matter what you intend, what matters is how your actions and words are perceived’ ‘, Cuomo said after his brother stepped down.
“There are stories and critics who say all sorts of things about me, many against me, but know this: My position has never changed. I never mislead anyone about the information I am providing or not providing in this program. I never attack nor encourage anyone to attack any woman who comes forward. I never called the press about my brother’s situation. I never influence or attempt to control CNN’s coverage of my family.”
However, this is evidenced by his text messages to Andrew Cuomo’s top assistant, Melissa DeRosa, in which he says “please let me help prepare” for his brother’s PR strategy. himself against allegations of sexual misconduct.
In another message, he told DeRosa what the governor’s statement “should have said” as he defended himself against allegations from former aide Charlotte Bennett, including a captioned version of why the statement was wrong at first.
In another exchange from March, DeRosa asked for “information” about a report by Ronan Farrow about alleged charges that were about to be dropped.
“There are rumors that Ronan is ready to move,” DeRosa said in a March 9 announcement. “Can you check your sources?”
“The story is not ready for tomorrow,” Cuomo said on March 15. The work will be published in New Yorkers on March 18.
In early March, after a woman named Anna Ruch accused Andrew Cuomo of sexually harassing her at a wedding in 2019, Chris Cuomo sent a message to DeRosa saying, “I have a directive about the girl at the wedding being brought up.”

Chris Cuomo: “I have a lead on the girl at the wedding being brought up.”
This seems to refer to Anna Ruch, who accused Andrew Cuomo of putting his hand on her back and when she protested, he placed his hand on her cheek and asked to kiss her.https://t.co/c6HUWOpKRj pic.twitter.com/DvHaNyQqzP

When Chris Cuomo tells his brother’s top assistant that “we’re making mistakes that we can’t make,” it’s not that he’s acting like a big brother. The “we” in that statement does not refer to CNN, nor does it refer to the Cuomo family. It deals with the leviathan political machine built around Andrew Cuomo – an apparatus for which Chris Cuomo is a de facto advisor.
All of this came to light on Tuesday night when a CNN spokesperson said the new documents “raise serious questions” and “we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending a review.” extra price.”
I admit I’m a perpetual pessimist when I say CNN got it right about Chris Cuomo, who should have been ordered by network operators to stop working as a paid political promoter for his brother. himself long before he was tainted by scandal. However, these are smoking gun documents that do not require further review. They didn’t ask any questions. They speak for themselves.
If CNN needs anything worse More than this to immediately start the firing process, I think Chris Cuomo will need at least a Class B felony conviction to be able to self-destruct from the network.
If that happens, I hope Jeffrey Toobin – another beneficiary of CNN loose termination policy – includes extensive testing. It just seems right.
