- The NY AG’s said Tuesday that Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed nearly a dozen women.
- It also said his brother, CNN host Chris Cuomo, helped him respond to the unfolding scandal.
- On his Tuesday night CNN show, Chris Cuomo made no mention of the news.
CNN host Chris Cuomo did not mention the report by the New York Attorney General’s Office that concluded his brother sexually harassed eleven women on his show.
He too was mentioned in the report, which described him offering advice to his brother on how to respond.
A 165-page report released by New York State Attorney General Letitia James’ office on Tuesday alleged that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed nearly a dozen women.
It also said that Chris Cuomo helped the governor’s respond to the allegations in February, when he pushed backed hard on the first of the allegations.
Chris Cuomo publicly apologized for advising his brother in May, when the news of his involvement emerged.
But the CNN host did not mention the allegations against him or his brother on CNN later on Tuesday.
As Mediaite noted, he spoke about the coronavirus pandemic and the January 6 Capitol riot instead.
Gov. Cuomo rejected the report’s findings on Tuesday, saying “The facts are much different than what has been portrayed.”
Although Cuomo’s show did not touch the news about his brother, CNN more broadly has covered it.
Chief media correspondent Brian Stelter wrote an article — prominently placed on CNN’s website — highlighting his colleague’s ethical quandary.
He also noted that on-air hosts Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper prominently covered the AG report, which prompted calls for Cuomo to resign as governor.
