To the utter shock and dismay of CNN’s resident buffoon Brian Stelter, Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple called out CNN for allowing anchor Chris Cuomo to conduct a ‘Cuomo Brothers love-a-thon’ interview with older brother New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Wemple told CNN’s “(Un)Reliable Sources” clown world host that:
“I would be remiss if I didn’t mention CNN’s own huge media story here.
Chris Cuomo, the anchor at the 9 o’clock hour, who covered Andrew Cuomo and had all these wonderful love-a-thon interviews with him — more than 10 of them.”
They suspended the conflict of interest rule for Chris Cuomo for those interviews.
Yet all of a sudden they’ve enforced it again now that Andrew Cuomo was in the midst of a historic scandal in the Albany statehouse.”
Wemple concluded “I think that is a major black eye for CNN,” — before Brian Stelter quickly changed the subject.
CNN Earns Their Clown News Network Moniker
As TuskerDaily reported back in May 2020. Despite the Coronavirus infecting 350,000 people in New York State, which resulted at the time in the deaths of 22,000 New Yorkers.
In an absolutely repugnant display, the Cuomo boys had themselves a grand old time laughing about Andrew Cuomo recently getting tested for COVID-19.
Cuomo Brothers love-a-thon
In January, as reports of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Nursing Home COVID Death Toll Coverup, along with his #MeToo sexual assaults started gaining traction.
CNN suddenly, and laughably reinstated their “rule” that prevented any of their hosts from interviewing or reporting on family members.
Of course, CNN was all too happy to ignore this “rule” when Andrew Cuomo was the Democrats’ flavor of the month and making frequent guest appearances on his younger brother, Chris’ show in 2020.
So after weeks of being mocked for his hypocrisy, on March 1st, Chris Cuomo briefly addressed his failing to report on anything concerning his scandal-ridden brother.
Like the weasel he is, Chris Cuomo conveniently used CNN’s newly reinstated rule to excuse away his blatant double standard claiming at the top of his ‘Cuomo Primetime’ show:
“Obviously I am aware of what’s going on with my brother, and obviously I cannot cover it, because he is my brother.
Now, of course, CNN has to cover it, and they have covered it extensively and they will continue to do so.”

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo
Andrew Cuomo, 63, has been accused in recent weeks of inappropriate behavior or remarks by seven women.
He is also under fire for withholding data on the number of COVID-19 deaths in New York State nursing homes.
Cuomo continues to strongly deny doing anything improper and claims any calls for his resignation are politically motivated and/or being driven by the cancel culture social media mob.
TuskerDaily has covered both Cuomo scandals extensively, here are a few links to some of the most popular stories:
