Chris Cuomo banned from covering his brother's harassment scandal, CNN colleague says
Catch up fast: The anchor was implicated in his brother's ballooning scandal when a New York Attorney General’s report out last week confirmed he participated in strategy sessions with Governor Cuomo’s aides on how to respond to the matter.
- Cuomo had previously apologized on-air for advising his brother when the Washington Post first broke news of it in May. But critics argued that Chris Cuomo's silence on the matter in the wake of the new findings by the AG damaged the CNN star's credibility.
Worth noting: Stelter acknowledged that Chris Cuomo began a weeklong vacation from his prime-time slot last Friday, but said the anchor does this every year around his birthday, and that the vacation had been planned before the AG's report was released.
